*IMPORTANT Update on the OverDrive & Libby apps*
Attention, OverDrive app users! OverDrive has discontinued the legacy OverDrive app as of April 30, 2023. Users will need to transition to the Libby app. Libby is OverDrive’s newer app for browsing and enjoying digital content from our library.
It’s time to give Libby a try! All your loans, holds, and wish list items will be waiting for you in Libby when you add your library card.
Libby also comes with new features we know you’ll love, like:
- Tags to categorize books however you’d like—you can even sync your OverDrive wish list into a tag!
- A central bookshelf for all loans and holds
- Customizable notifications for ready holds, new magazine issues and more
- Compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Sonos speakers
- Easy access to OverDrive support staff
Note: Our library’s digital collection will continue to be available at pls.overdrive.com on desktop and mobile devices.
