Don't have a mobile device? Libby not compatible with your device? No problem!


If you don't have Windows 10 and want to access our eBooks and Audiobooks from your computer or

laptop's  web browser, or you have a screen reader or an older device that can't run Libby, use Overdrive.

It's the same collection you'll find on Libby - just a different way of accessing it.

Meet Libby!

A streamlined, user-friendly app for accessing our digital collection

 STEP 1

Install the Libby app from your device's app store by clicking one of the buttons to the left. Or visit libbyapp.com in your device's web browser.


​You can also download the app to computers running Windows 10 or higher from the Microsoft Store.

STEP 2

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

STEP 3

Tap Explore in the upper right of the screen to browse your library's collection and borrow a title.

STEP 4

Switch between your library's collection and your borrowed titles by tapping Library or Shelf at the bottom of the screen.


Borrowed titles appear under Loans in the Shelf menu, and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi so you can read them when you're offline. Titles will be returned automatically at the end of your checkout period.

From your Loans, you can:

Tap Open to begin reading a book or listening to an audiobook.
Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew Early (to make the book available to others if you've finished before the title's automatic return date).
