The free Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital books, audiobooks, and magazines from your public library. Libby is available for Android, iOS, Windows 10, and some Chromebooks.

Notes:

  • If you belong to a non-public library or have a device that's not compatible with Libby, you can use the OverDrive app to borrow and enjoy digital titles instead.
  • If you belong to a school, you may be able to use our new Sora app to borrow ebooks and audiobooks instead.

Get started with Libby

Step 1

Install the Libby app from your device's app store.

Step 2

In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.

Step 3

Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.

Step 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.

From your Shelf, you can:

  • Tap Open Book, Open Audiobook, or Open Magazine to start reading or listening to a title.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew, Return, or Send to Device to send a book to Kindle (U.S. libraries only).
