The one-tap reading app!

We are excited to announce that OverDrive has released a new and improved app for ebook and audiobook lending called Libby. Libby simplifies the setup and lending process for ebooks and audiobooks, and was designed based on user and library feedback. As of June 20th, Libby will be the recommended app for all users. There is no date indicated at this time for when the previous library eBook app, OverDrive, will no longer be supported, so users can continue to the use the app that they prefer for now. Libby is available now for download in all app stores.

In order to familiarize yourself with Libby, you can read about its new features here: https://help.libbyapp.com. And, of course, the best method for learning is by downloading Libby on a device and trying it out!
