Try the new Libby app

Overdrive's new app has some great new features that should make borrowing, using, and returning electronic and audio books even easier. Here is some info you may want to know about Libby.

  • Available for both iOS (Apple) and Android (Google Play). 
  • Intuitive navigation
  • Simplified borrowing and downloading process
  • Store multiple library cards
    • Whether you have cards from multiple counties or each family member has their own card, you can store them all on the same app
    • All of the cards have to be from Maryland's Digital Library (so most public libraries in Maryland will work)
  • One unified bookshelf that automatically displays all of your loans and holds from all of your libraries

You can find the Libby Website with promotional videos here.

It is important to note that while the Libby app was created by Overdrive, it is separate from the Overdrive app. The original Overdrive app is still available, so you can choose whichever one you prefer. You do not need both, but if you already have the Overdrive app, maybe give Libby a try and see if it is a better fit. 

Happy Reading!

Great to have news apps for phone but, when are they going to have an extension for Chromebooks that can download the audio book and transfer it to an MP3 player?

Bob, that's a great suggestion and I'll be glad to pass it along to our contacts at Overdrive. Thanks!
