Notice—The OverDrive company has issued an end-of-life notice
for their original OverDrive app (uses this blue icon with a white letter O). Starting February 2022, the app will be removed from the App Store / Play Store. Those who already have it downloaded may continue to use it throughout most of 2022, but will eventually have to switch to the newer Libby app
. For help with making this switch, please visit our third-floor service desk.
With the Libby app, you can access tens of thousands of ebooks, emagazines, or digital audiobooks. Libby has a modern interface, is intuitive and user friendly, and—for those who share a device with someone else or who have access to more than one library—it allows you to enter multiple library card numbers.
Libby is available for download on Apple and Android devices. Any device type with internet access can use the online Libby App.
