Whether you are an old pro at using the library’s Bridges program to read or listen to books on your device or if you this is the first time you’re hearing about our library’s online resources, we’d like to introduce you to Libby.
Libby is Overdrive’s new App for eBooks and Audio Books. You just need your library card and a device (phone, tablet, computer). It is easy to use and there are thousands of titles available! Remember, if you are using your Wellman-Scofield library card to log on, you will need to use the 5 digit number on the back of your library card that starts with the number 9. If you ever have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us here at the library.
To download the Libby App, click on the link below.
And for more info and easy steps on how to download and get started with the Libby app, visit Overdrive.
Getting started with the Libby app
Our new Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital books and audiobooks from your public library. Libby is available for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 10.
Note: Do you belong to a school or non-public library, or do you require a feature (like screen reader support) that’s not available in Libby yet? Use the OverDrive app to borrow and enjoy digital titles instead.
Install the Libby app from your device’s app store.
Open Libby and find your library. You can search by library name, city, or zip code.
Browse your library’s collection and borrow a title. When prompted, sign in with a valid library card.
Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you’re offline.
From your Shelf, you can:
- Tap Open book or Open audiobook to start reading or listening to a title.
- Tap the cover image, then Send to Device to send a book to Kindle.
