eBooks Made Easy: All About Libby

Learn how to manage your eBooks on your iPad, Kindle, and smart devices!

Welcome to Libby!

"Libby" is Overdrive's newest mobile app. It is compatible with Windows, IOS, and Android mobile devices. Libby allows you to search for eBooks and eAudiobooks, check out titles, and read/listen to them directly from your device. Here are some key features that are unique to Libby:

  1. No Instructions Necessary: Libby has a set up wizard that guides you through setting up the app and can walk you through all of the features that Libby has to offer.

  2. Built for Multiple Libraries: With Libby, you can log into overdrive with library cards from all participating libraries. Libby also consolidates all of your checkouts on to one single bookshelf; making it easier to keep track of your titles.

  3.  Reading on a Kindle?  Libby can send your books directly to your kindle device. All you need to do is log in to your amazon account.

  4. Tags: If you find a book you want to save for later, you can tag it. Tagging an item will save a link to the item on your device, so you can easily find and check them out later. This is similar to the 'Wish List" feature used in the overdrive app. The advantage of using tags, is that they work across multiple libraries. So if you have multiple library cards, you can easily keep track of the items you want to check out.
