Meet Libby.

A new app to discover and enjoy thousands of ebooks and audiobooks from your public library and OverDrive. Inspired by user and library feedback, Libby was designed to get people reading as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Now, readers are just one tap away from unlocking the power of the written word from the public library. All you need is a library card to get started.

The path to reading happiness

One tap to find a library near you

One tap to discover something new

One tap to instantly read or listen to the book you borrow

One tap to a shelf that has everything you’re reading and listening to and all the books you want to read

One tap to finding your next great read at any library where you have a library card

*It’s so easy and convenient: Your library is open 24/7 and ebooks and audiobooks automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there’s never any late fees

Designed for readers to enjoy anytime, anywhere
