Sorry to jump in here but lkmiller have you had success using your library’s Overdrive and Cloud Library on the same device? My library also splits their ebooks between the two and I have recurring issues with my older Kobo doing this through ADE. I previously thought about getting a newer kobo with built in OD to try and solve it, and now am thinking again about it, now that they’re so easily available via Walmart.
Yes, I have the cloudLibrary app authorized with the same Adobe ID that I use for Adobe Digital Editions. However, I've found that I cannot have both apps authorized with my Adobe ID on the same computer. Authorizing one will mess up the authorization of the other. So I have the cloudLibrary app on my laptop and ADE on my desktop.

Excuse me for jumping in...

I was able to use Overdrive and CloudLibrary under Windows 7; Under Windows 10, I cannot.

I'm not sure what that it is Win 7 vs 10, or different applications versions. I am using ADE 2 on both.
I have ADE 2 on a Windows 8 desktop and the cloudLibrary app on a Windows 7 laptop. I haven't been able to have them both authorized with my Adobe ID on the same machine at the same time, Windows 8 or 7. I haven't tried with Windows 10.

That's right, I forgot that the Nook has the ability to use your Adobe login right on the device. So, if Barnes & Noble gave you access to a browser you could download the Overdrive book directly to the Nook like you can and (could/can?) with Sony T2, T3? I don't have a Nook here with me, but if I understand you correctly, I would just have to download the Overdrive book to my computer and side-load it to the Nook? Would that work without ADE on the computer?
I haven't ever tried downloading Overdrive books directly to a Nook, and I don't know if you can get to the web browser on the 2019 Nook Plus without root.

I use ADE to download Overdrive books to my PC. If you have another way to download the Overdrive EPUBs and have them connected to your Adobe ID, then you wouldn't need ADE. But, at least on stock unrooted 2019 Nook Plus, you won't see an ACSM file. But once you have the EPUB on your computer, you can just copy the file over to the Nook drive without needing to transfer it via the app.

I haven't seen that yet. I'm guessing the cloudLibrary app wouldn't work on Linux.
Yeah, they have PC, Mac, iOS, and Android apps. No idea if you could run the PC app under Wine. You have to make sure you set it up to use your existing Adobe ID otherwise it generates one for you. I imagine only the PC and Mac apps let you actually set a specific Adobe ID.

Just to be clear, this is the behavior I am seeing, except I'm using Win 10 and 7.

Although on Win 7 I was able to install and use both on the same machine.

Same here! I am running Win7. I gave up on cloudLibrary until I can get another computer to use just it, no Overdrive. I'm not sure cloudLibary is worth it for me. Oh, and this just happened with the latest update to the cloudLibrary app. Before I had no issues having both on my computer.

Maybe it is the latest update then. I only started using cloudLibrary a few months ago. Although I remember having the same issue trying to use Bluefire on a computer where I already had ADE.

Even though it's kind of a pain, I'm glad to have access to cloudLibrary. Not only for the added selection, but also less of a need to put things on hold. I think the only time I've had to wait for a cloudLibrary book was for something that was "coming soon" -- sort of like a pre-order. I don't know if it's just because less people have started using cloudLibrary or if it's because of a more flexible allowance for libraries through them. I do hope my library sticks with Overdrive though because it's so much easier with my Kobo.
