New App for Downloading Books

Posted on November 17, 2017 at 8:22 AM by Danielle Rogers

Overdrive downloadable books recently introduced a new app for downloading eBooks and audiobooks from the library. Libby, by Overdrive offers an easier, seamless way to borrow books on your tablet or mobile device.

Getting Started

To access the library's collection of downloadable books, follow the steps show here on your tablet or mobile device, or download the print instructions linked below.
  1. In your app store, search for Libby, by Overdrive. Install and open the app. 
  2. Once the app is downloaded, tap Find My Library. The app will determine your home library using your current location. If the suggested library is incorrect, search for your library by zip code or library name. 
  3. Sign in with your library card by tapping the Add Your Card button. 
  4. Select your library then sign in using your library card number and your PIN. This information will be stored in the app for future use. 

Amazon Kindle Tablets

Kindle tablets download eBooks books differently than other devices. Check out Overdrive's step-by-step Instructions for Downloading to a Kindle eReader. The Libby app is not currently available for Kindle devices, but you may send your downloaded eBooks to a Kindle from your smartphone.
