Q. What is the Libby App?

I just learned of the new Libby app. What is the difference in the Libby app and the Overdrive app?


The new Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital books and audiobooks from the Library. Libby is available for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 10. With Libby:

  • Sign into multiple libraries, with one or more cards for each library.
  • All of your loans and holds are consolidated on a single shelf.
  • Downloads to the app happen automatically.
  • If you prefer reading on a Kindle, Libby can send your books to it.
  • Your books are automatically synced across your device.

The Libby app may be downloaded from your app store. But if you're not quite ready to switch, the original OverDrive app is still available for use. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.
