On February 3, 2022, the library held a virtual program via Zoom called Libby 101. The program was basic intro to the Libby app, which is the app created by OverDrive to read and listen to e-books, audiobooks, and magazines. If you are currently using the OverDrive app, please be aware that it will no longer be supported as of February 23, 2022 and you are encouraged to use the Libby app instead.
If you were unable to attend the virtual program, you’re in luck! We have recorded the presentation and uploaded it to our YouTube channel. We have also uploaded a PDF file of the presentation as well.
We have divided the presentation into parts, so you can easily find the information that you’re looking for. If you would like to watch the entire presentation, please view the playlist on our YouTube channel.
