|OverDrive & Libby : One digital library with two apps
Borrow ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, and streaming videos to enjoy on your phone, tablet, or computer with specialized content for adults, teens, and kids.
What is the difference between OverDrive and Libby? Basically, they are two different apps you can use to access the same collection of materials. Libby is a newer, more streamlined experience, and will eventually replace the OverDrive app altogether. It is also the preferred platform for reading magazines. OverDrive supports video streaming but Libby does not.
How to use: Download the OverDrive or Libby App from your device's app store, and then check out and download your selections using your library card number and PIN. To use your Windows, Mac, or Chromebook, use your internet browser to visit the links to the left.
