Libby can't be that great right? Well with Libby you sign in once and have access to multiple Libraries with one or more library cards. This allows you to see all holds and loans in one place. This is a huge quality of life enhancement for those with multiple library cards (including children or spouse) or multiple cards from other library systems.


The current OverDrive app has done a good job of getting us here, but has had a few instability errors (Session Expired) as of late and we are encouraging people to switch over to Libby. The new interface is easier to use, clean, and modern. Need help? Check out the Libby Help Page!
