Libby App

The Libby App is the easiest way to get started with digital books, audiobooks, and magazines from the Library.

1.  Install the Libby App from Google Play on Android or from the App Store on iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPodTouch).  Or visit in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.

2.  In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a valid library card.

3.  Browse the Library's collection and borrow a title.

4.  Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're on Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.  On your Shelf, tap loans at the top of the screen.  From there, you can:

  • Tap Read With... to choose whether you'd like to open a book in Kindle or Libby.
  • Tap Open in Libby to start reading or listening in the app.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew Loan and Return Early.

If you have questions, please let us know.  Or if you would like to schedule an individual session with our Reference Librarian, give us a call at (251) 968-1176.
