It's about time I gave an update to this thread.

We deleted all our books from the eReader (probably not necessary) and uninstalled the Reader Library software (old style software). I actually deleted the C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Sony Corporation folder but I don't know if that was necessary.
I reinstalled Reader Library and things worked a lot better. We have been using it for a little while now and all still seems to be fine. We'll see how it goes.
The children are excited because they have just managed to borrow their first epub from a library - Artemis Fowl. So we're all set.
Thank you for all your comments

Calibre by far.

I use the Sony Reader software only to buy books from the Sony store.

Calibre has the advantage of automatically creating collections based whatever data you want. Author, Series, Tags, A custom column. And it can cause the collections to be sorted in any other you like. So Series based collections are sorted in series order. I make Author collections based on a custom column, so I can add a sort order, and I have it sorted by published date. I prefer to read authors in the order they wrote them.

I had Sony Reader mess up my collections and collection order several times. So I stopped using it.

Calibre also allows you to change or add a cover.

With some add ins, it can change which 3 books show up on the home page of the reader, and even change the New tag (turn it off or on).

Thanks for the update, nowthenmobile! I'm glad you found a solution and that your kids are excited and enjoying e-reading from the library. I am currently reading a book from my library as well. It's great how convenient it is to borrow a book from the comfort of your own home.

Sorry to barge in here, but you mentioned that you use a Mac with the Sony software. Which version do you use? I uninstalled it because it was giving me fits, but I read later that you have to have it installed in order to register a PRS-T1 with Adobe.

I usually use Calibre. It works with my Nook as well as my PRS-T1.

I don't have the Sony software installed - I registered it from the device. Just selected the Sony Store button on the T1, put in my Sony login (or you can create a new one if needed), and once you are logged in, it pops up asking you for your Adobe ID user/password. After that you can use the Sony store, the library, or sideload Adobe DRM'd epubs.

I registered my T1 wirelessly through the Reader Store as well. I have given up on the Reader for Mac software for syncing. I only use it for purchases now. I have switched to calibre to manage my library and transfer books to my T1.
