eBooks & Audiobooks

Meet Libby, the new Overdrive App!

Libby, the new app from OverDrive, makes it easy to borrow ebooks and audiobooks and enjoy them on a smartphone or other portable device. Just download the free Libby app, then input your library card number to browse, or search, thousands of digital titles. The virtual bookshelf lists all the titles you have borrowed or have placed on hold. You will get an email notice when a book on hold is available.

If you are new to ebooks, we recommend that you download the Libby app. If you currently use the Overdrive app, you may continue to use it or replace it with Libby. For general information about Libby, go to Meet Libby. For help installing and using Libby, please ask at the Reference desk or go to help.libbyapp.com.
