Meet Libby!  Digital library loans have traditionally been cumbersome, requiring many steps to complete.  I recently found a new app “Libby” by Overdrive that simplifies the process.

What so great about Libby?  It’s  a single app that lets you search for library books (including audio books), create a virtual “shelf” for your books, as well as a place to listen to or read the books.  If you prefer the Kindle app, Libby can send your book there as well.


– Download Libby from the Apple App Store, Google Play or Microsoft


– Select “Find Library”, confirm location


– Sign in with your library card


– After signing in, select “Library” to view the catalog or search titles/subjects/authors



– Select “Shelf” to see currently checked out items and holds.   Scroll through “Loans” to listen, read or download a selection.
