Meet Libby - the new OverDrive app launching on 20 June 2017


Libby is an innovative new mobile app from OverDrive, Buckinghamshire Libraries eBook provider.

Libby is designed to make borrowing and enjoying eBooks and audiobooks easier than ever, through:

  • Intuitive navigation
  • A streamlined first-time user experience
  • A simplified borrowing and downloading process
  • One unified bookshelf that automatically displays all of your loans and holds from all of your libraries
  • And more!

You can use Libby in place of, or in addition to, the OverDrive app. Of course, you can also continue to use the OverDrive app exclusively if you'd rather not try Libby at this time.

Note: Any eBooks and audiobooks that you borrow through the OverDrive app (or your library's OverDrive website) will show up in Libby.
