Borrowing eBooks and digital audio books at the library is easy with the new app from OverDrive called Libby.The app is easier to set up and use than the original Overdrive app.

Start by downloading the "Libby Overdrive" free app on your device. (For iPads/iPhones go to App Store. Android devices can download the app at the Play Store.) Open the app and tap "Hi" or swipe down and tap "Find my Library." Tap "Yes" to set your library.  You now are set up and ready to go.

Tap "Library at the bottom of the app and you will see the catalog where you can search and borrow eBooks and audio books. If you tap "Shelf" at the bottom of the screen you will see what you borrowed and can tap "Open Book" or "Open Audiobook." Once open, the current item will show in the bottom half circle for easy access.

There are many other new features. Borrowed titles will automatically download to the shelf when you are in a Wi-Fi area, no need to choose between confusing file types. If you prefer reading on your Kindle, you can send your library books to it from the shelf. Tap the title to send, then tap "Send to Device." Also in the "Shelf," you can view your holds or see what you have borrowed in the past by choosing "Activity." If you use Libby across all your tablets and smartphones, the app will remember your positions in the title, as well as any bookmarks and notes you added across your devices. In "Shelf," you can return the item, if it hasn't been sent to a Kindle. Do this by tapping the borrowed title then tapping "Return to Library."
