Accessing our audiobooks with the Libby App

 

Using the Libby app provided by OverDrive to listen to audiobooks

Our download and streaming partner, OverDrive, provide a free app that you can use to access our audiobooks on a smartphone or tablet. Using the app, you can borrow and download titles to your device, keeping all of your current checkouts in one place.  This is particularly useful if you are on the move, won't have access to Wi-Fi, and don't want to use up your mobile data to listen to a book.

Below we've outlined how to get the app, and included links to the OverDrive pages, where you can download the correct app for your device. Alternatively, you can find Libby in the app store for your device. You can use the app to access our service, or you can use our website to listen online. 

If you want to use Libby online, you can visit https://libbyapp.com/ and login and follow the online instructions to add the Listening Books library.
