Ebooks and audio-books are great for traveling. They are portable and accessible across lots of different media. Using a Kindle, iPad, iPod, iPhone, PC or Mac, patrons can take their library with them wherever they go.
The free Libby app is the easiest way to get started. Libby has the same resources as Overdrive — but Libby is an app that is more user-friendly. Libby offers adult, teen, and children’s fiction, nonfiction, popular authors in eBooks, audio-books, and even magazines.
It is easy to get started with Libby – here’s how:
Install the Libby app from your device’s app store.
Or, visit libbyapp.com in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.
In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.
Browse the library’s collection and borrow a title.
Borrowed titles appear on under Shelf > Loans. Titles will download to the app automatically when connected to Wi-Fi so they can be read offline.
From Loans, you can:
- Tap Open Book to choose where you’d like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.
- Tap Open Audiobook or Open Magazine to start reading or listening to that title.
- Tap the Due Date to see options like Renew and Return.
Need a little help? Libby offers help with things such as searching, borrowing, downloading or streaming, returning, renewing, and lots more. For more information, visit: Libby Help.
