So the Kitchener Public Library is running a usage/satisfaction survey
here:

In addition to offering the suggested feedback I sent KPL a gentle
reminder that their eBooks are DRM-laden, and in addition that (as far
as I know) I cannot use a Linux computer to read these books or
transfer them to a mobile device, because the required software
(OverDrive Media Console and/or Adobe Digital Editions) are not
available for my operating system. As a regular user of the KPL, it
distresses me that I am locked out of their digital content. 

I won't go so far as to suggest other concerned Linux users do the
same, but I expect that one lone voice in their feedback survey will
be ignored.
