eBook App Now in Multiple Languages

Good news, eBook readers! The popular eBook app, Libby, opens a new window, for our Overdrive platform now supports ten different languages. Now you can more easily navigate the Libby app and manage eBooks with an interface in your preferred language. These are the supported languages:

      • English
      • Spanish
      • French (Canada)
      • Simplified Chinese
      • Traditional Chinese
      • German
      • Italian
      • Japanese
      • Russian
      • Swedish

Using a different language in Libby couldn't be simpler. If your desktop or mobile device is set to any of these languages, Libby will automatically display user prompts and directions in that language, though the language of eBooks and eAudiobook content will stay the same. We hope these changes will help English language learners to more easily use eBook and eAudiobook materials.
