The App that gives access to Digital eBooks and Audiobooks
Best-selling and classic titles available anytime, anywhere
Meet Libby, the innovative and fun new reading app from the Public Libraries in Lancaster County that’s getting rave reviews from readers and librarians. The Libby app is a friendly guide to help people search and borrow eBooks and audiobooks from their local library. Warm, personal and friendly, Libby is easy to use and provides a unique reading experience for readers of all ages – always one tap away from the library, their bookshelf and their next great read.
“Libby is fast, fun and friendly,” said Mary Ann Heltshe-Steinhauer, LSLC Community Relations manager, “Readers love Libby because of its user-friendliness and the fact that they’re always one tap away from the book they’re reading, other books they’ve checked out, or the extensive catalog at their library.”
Libby guides readers to find a local library and remember their library card number. If a user doesn’t have a library card, Libby directs the user to the library.
Libby was built upon OverDrive’s best-in-class OverDrive Read technology, which allows Libby to present any eBook or audiobook in a simple, beautiful format regardless if the title is a novel, comic or graphic novel, reference material, cookbook or Read-Along. Please note that there may be a wait for popular titles.
Libby features everyone can enjoy:
- Download eBooks and audiobooks for offline reading, or stream them to save space
- Sample any eBook or audiobook with a tap – nothing to download or delete
- Kindle® users can send library eBooks to their device or app (U.S. only)
- Libby remembers a reader’s place in a book as well as what notes and bookmarks that were created across all devices, allowing for a synced reading experience
- Keeps track of reading history in the activity tab.
Since its launch, Libby has received positive reviews by both readers and librarians. With more than half a million installs and over 700 five-star reviews, the user-friendly app is quickly becoming a favorite to discover, borrow and enjoy eBooks and audiobooks for free. It’s a library aide available 24/7, anytime and anywhere.
OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for libraries, serves 38,000 libraries and schools worldwide, including 90 percent of U.S. public libraries.
