OverDrive & Libby
What is the difference between the OverDrive and Libby apps?
Both Libby and OverDrive allow to you to borrow and enjoy our digital collection.
The Libby App is the newest app from OverDrive. It is easy to navigate: you are always one-tap away from your current ebook or audiobook.
The Libby app also makes it easy to switch between multiple library collections and find all your loans and holds on one "shelf."
The OverDrive app is the "classic app", and includes some features that are not yet available in the Libby app, such as streaming video, recommendations, as well as compatibility with Kindle Fire, mp3 players, and screen readers.
