App Description

Google Play

Meet Libby. Discover ebooks and audiobooks from your local library. Brought to you by OverDrive.

Did you know your local library has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks? You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.

1. Fish out your library card
2. Open the Libby app
3. Find your local library
4. Search, sample, borrow, enjoy

It takes just a few taps to find and borrow a book. Libby has a ground-breaking built-in ebook reader, and a beautiful audiobook player. If you prefer, you can send books to your Kindle for reading.

• Sign in to multiple libraries, with one or more library cards

• Stay signed in for as long as you like

• Download books and audiobooks for offline reading, or stream them to save space

• Sample any book with a tap — nothing to download or delete

• Try a zoomable graphic novel, or a picture book with readalong audio

• All your holds and loans are consolidated on a single shelf

• Tag titles as read, loved, hated, wishlist, schoolbook, beach-reading, whatever you like

• Your loans, holds, reading positions, bookmarks and notes are synchronized automatically across all your devices

• Keep track of your reading history in the Activity tab

Libby is the brand new app from OverDrive. We're trying to simplify and bring joy to every aspect of digital borrowing and reading. If you love it, you can use it instead of the OverDrive app. If you don't love it yet, feel free to keep using the OverDrive app, but check in on Libby from time to time — we're adding features and squashing bugs every day.

Happy reading.

What’s New

Google Play

  • 1.7.0

    January 16, 2019 This release addresses several issues:
    * We've added safeguards to ensure that downloads are not fetched on cellular networks if you have "Wifi-only" checked.
    * If you have an Android 9 phone with a display cutout (or "notch"), reading and listening layout is improved.
    * Fixed a bug where seeking immediately after re-opening the app could take you to an unexpected part of the audiobook.
  • 1.6.3

    October 30, 2018 We've been fixing bugs!
    * Android Auto now displays your audiobook on launch — fewer taps to start playing.
    * System font-size preferences are applied throughout the app.
    * Libby always saves your ebooks and audiobooks to the SD card (if your device has one). We fixed several SD card bugs in this release.
    * When you submit a support request, OverDrive's helpful robots try to give you a quick answer right away.
