Libby Tutorial

Digital Services Libby

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

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

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

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

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.

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.
