OverDrive has returned to the Irving Public Library! Beginning Monday, April 13, OverDrive and their new app, Libby will be available to our patrons. Libby is the one-tap reading app that makes it simple and easy to borrow digital items. If you prefer the classic OverDrive app don’t worry, it’s still available. We are excited to bring back OverDrive and we invite you to try Libby. Whichever you choose, it’s just gotten easier to bring the library with you.
Libby has many incredibly useful features that make accessing our digital catalogue of e-books and audiobooks more convenient. You can adjust an ebook’s font size, book layout, and lighting. The audiobook player also gives you the ability to control playback speed and even set a sleep timer. Other notable features include the ability to add multiple library cards, place or even delay holds, and much more.
With Libby by OverDrive, it only takes a few taps to find, borrow, and enjoy your books. All you need to to get started is your 14 digit library card number and PIN. This service is compatible with all major computers and devices, iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Chromebook™. Check out Libby today by downloading the app on your personal device or visit libbyapp.com.
