We Love Libby!

Capture libby

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. Capture libby info

It is easy to get started with Libby – here’s how:

Step 1:

Install the Libby app from your device’s app store.

Or, visit libbyapp.com in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.

Step 2:

In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.

Step 3:

Browse the library’s collection and borrow a title.

Step 4:

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.

Happy reading!
