Overdrive Sunset

If You Are Using the Overdrive App, Read This!

For quite a while, our ebook and audiobook users have been able to use both the Overdrive app and the Libby app to read and listen to the items in our collection. But, as often happens with technology, things become outdated. Last year, the Overdrive company began to phase out its support of the Overdrive app in favor of the Libby app.  Users were no longer able to download the Overdrive app, but if the app was already downloaded to your device it would still work.

Don’t fear! The Libby app is an accessible and easy way to continue reading and listening to our vast collection of materials. All your Overdrive account information will transfer over to your Libby account. And Overdrive offers many resources to help with the transition:
