To get started, tablet and smartphone users will need to download the Libby app from their device’s app store. Older devices and Kindle Fires may need to use the OverDrive app instead. Both apps feature the same content. You can search, check out, and read or listen to e-books within either app.
If you want to read e-books and e-audiobooks on your computer, or if your device does not support apps, consult the OverDrive Getting Started guide for directions on how to set up your specific device. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance. We can schedule a phone appointment to assist you. Tutorial for Libby app.
