Meet Libby

Borrowers of library e-books and audiobooks, please take note!

In June of 2017, OverDrive announced a new mobile app for Wisconsin's Digital Library called Libby. This app is designed to simplify the OverDrive mobile user experience, especially for new users. Libby will be added to Wisconsin's Digital Library in August as the preferred app for new users. Currently, there is no definitive timeline for when the current OverDrive app will be discontinued.

Libby is currently available for download in the app stores for iOS and Android (but not yet for Amazon's Kindle Fire devices.)

If you have any questions about borrowing e-books and digital audiobooks from the library, please contact us or schedule a Tech Time appointment for one-on-one help with your device.
