Libby App

Discover the new app by Overdrive, 'Libby'! 

Libby allows readers to navigate and browse more easily across multiple libraries while you’re always one tap away from your loans.

Both Libby and OverDrive app offer the same content from your library. Libby is best for first time users, and provides a simple, yet elegant user experience for current and new users alike.

Users are still welcome to use the original Overdrive app.
