Libby by Overdrive

Libby by Overdrive

   Borrow ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines to read on your phone or tablet using the Libby app by OverDrive. You can even send and read your borrowed ebooks to your Kindle ereader! It’s free and easy to get started for new users and a streamlined experience for current OverDrive app users. Learn more at overdrive.com/apps/libby/. If you currently use the legacy OverDrive app and need assistance, visit https://help.overdrive.com.

 

 

Step 1 

Install the Libby App from your device's app store (below). Or, visit libbyapp.com in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.

 

Download on the App Store

     Get it on Google Play

Step 2

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

Step 3

Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.
Your selection will vary based on your library, since each library chooses what titles and formats to offer in Libby.

Step 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.
On your Shelf, tap loans at the top of the screen. From there, you can:

  • Tap Read With... to choose where you'd like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle or start reading in Libby.
  • Tap Open In Libby to start reading or listening in the app.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

Happy reading!
