There are many ebooks and audiobooks available for free through the library. This digital content can be accessed through an e-reader, such as a Kindle or Nook, or through an app called Libby, which is available on all Apple and Android devices. Libby is made by Overdrive, which you may have heard of if you have downloaded digital content before. Currently, there is no Libby app for Kindle Fire devices.
Below are some videos to guide you through the process of using Libby and its features.
To get started, download Libby from either the App Store on Apple devices, such as an iPhone or iPad or the Google Play Store on Android devices.
Here is a video demonstration of opening the Libby app for the first time and using your library card to login. If you do not have a library card yet, you can sign up for one online.
Once you have downloaded and signed in, you’re ready to search for materials! There is a video demonstration below that shows how to check out an item. The video also shows how to change reading settings.
Stay tuned for more Libby tutorials, including exploring and browsing, how to place a hold, and a guide to the shelf feature.
