They ask for your Service ID Number and I think the Branch you serve(d). It's been so long ago since I got the card.

They might consider putting that info on the application. As is, someone will say yes in the blank and the library will return the app asking for more information. That not only wastes everyone's time, but it delays getting the card.

It was on the online form I filled out. I didn't have to send anything in. I just filled out the form and in 10 days I got my card.

I was looking at a mail-in form. Anyway, just looked at the online form and still don't see any place for the info. Unless they ask for it on a separate page after you submit your personal info.

When you scroll to the bottom of this page before you fill out a form.

Ridiculous, yes, but that was due to their antiquated system. During a phone call earlier this year with the FLP I was told the system was being updated to allow online renewals of one's account. I know for a fact that they have the capability since they made it available for me during the conversation. I do not know, however, if it has been officially activated yet.

If it is close to renewal time, go to the main home page of FLP (not Overdrive), login to "My Account," scroll to the bottom and look under "My Bills." This is where the renewal amount would appear with a link for payment.
I wish this was in effect already. I am 18 days away from my expiration date. It was my first card from FLP and they wrote it down on the card when they send it to me. It just says I have no bills. Do I have to be closer to the date than 18 days? I guess I have to send in a check again. I don't want to wait and then have my account locked and my wishlists and such disappear. Online pay would make it so much easier.

Navy Library is a good alternative . . .

. . . for current and retired Navy and Marines. See http://navy.lib.overdrive.com/E83C5D...en/Default.htm

I probably shouldn't be sharing this because it will increase borrowing rates, but I find many ebooks with long waiting lists at my local public library are immediately available on the Navy site.

Thanks to all who serve(d) and US taxpayers, too!

Birmingham, AL straddles the county line (but is primarily in Jefferson County), and I live in Shelby county. Since I live in the city of Birmingham, I get access to Jefferson County's library, but because I live in Shelby County, I also have access to its library. I find that Shelby County's waiting lists are shorter than Jefferson's.

Wow, their collection has got to be one of the most complete Overdrive collections I've ever seen. I have or have had access to four different library consortium collections (one which was shared by almost all of the libraries in Tennessee), and this one has many more ebooks and audio books and is more complete for several of the series I've checked.
