Libby is run by Overdrive. This app is easier to use than Overdrive. We recommend using the Libby App!

Did you know your local library has thousands of eBooks and audiobooks? You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand. You can use Libby on your Apple device, Android device, or Windows Computer.
