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 enter 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 a 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.

 

*If you use a Kindle Fire you will need to use the Overdrive app.

 

For help installing and using Libby, please watch our introductory tutorial, call the Reference desk at 508-532-5570, x4361, or go to help.libbyapp.com.
