Do You Use the OverDrive App?

OverDrive is in the process of sunsetting its legacy OverDrive app in favor of the newer and more user-friendly Libby app. We strongly encourage users to use the Libby app moving forward. If you need additional support, please see our video tutorial.

Please note, OverDrive will remove the OverDrive app from the Apple Store and Google Play starting in February 2022. Current OverDrive app users can continue to use the app, and new users looking for the OverDrive app will be directed to Libby. All users can continue to use, borrow and open titles online via the OverDrive website. Customers who decide to continue to use the OverDrive app should note that the product is no longer supported.
