Libby Tutorial

Libby is among the library’s most popular digital service that’s free to all library cardholders.  This service offers access to a collection of popular eBooks & audiobooks for you to check out on your mobile devices and take with you on-the-go.

Each cardholder may check out up to 10 titles at a time for either a 7-day or 14-day lending period. Although Wi-Fi is required to use the service and download the materials, you don’t need access to Wi-Fi to listen/hear the downloaded content.  Once the loan period ends, the items will return themselves back to the collection.

Getting Started with Libby




STEP 1
Install the Libby app from your device's app store.

Or, visit libbyapp.com in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge (Chromium) browser.

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

STEP 3
Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.

Your selection will vary based on your library, since each library chooses what titles and formats to offer in Libby.

STEP 4
Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're connected to 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 where you'd like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.
  • Tap Open In Libby or Open Audiobook to start reading or listening in the app.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.
