New Features in Libby

One of the most popular ways for our customers to access OverDrive eBook and Audiobook collections is through the easy-to-use Libby app.  Available for Android (version 5+), iOS (version 10+), and through your web browser at, the developers of Libby are adding new features all the time.  Here are a few recent updates:

  • Wish Lists: use the “Tags” feature keep track of books you would like to read in the future, but aren’t ready to put on hold yet
  • Multiple Cards: customers who share a device will appreciate being able to add and rename multiple cards, including cards from more than one library
  • Highlight, Define, Notes: great for students, you can now annotate books and download your notes
  • Open Dyslexic Font: easier to read option for readers with Dyslexia
  • Enhanced Screen Reader Compatibility: including labeled buttons and images
  • New Magazines: Maclean’sHello! CanadaToronto Life, and more
  • Coming soon: “Recommend to Library” feature and additional accessibility options

Libby is the easiest way for customers who are new to OverDrive to access our collections.  With the legacy OverDrive app being discontinued later in the year, this is also a great time for users of that app to move to Libby.
