How to move to the Libby app

Attention all OverDrive app users:  The legacy OverDrive app Icon Description automatically generated is being retired by its creator and going away as of May 1, 2023.  All OverDrive app users should plan to switch to the Libby app now to have uninterrupted access to free eBooks, eAudiobooks, and e-Magazines from OverDrive with your Dauphin County Library card.


Details about the steps to transition to the Libby app are shared below.


  • Here are a few features that Libby offers:
  • Making the change:  It’s quick and easy to download and begin using Libby.
  • Read across devices:  All your loans, notes, bookmarks, and reading progress sync across your devices.
  • Offline access:  Download eBooks and audiobooks for offline reading, or stream using WIFI.
  • Listen in your car:  Enjoy audiobooks in your car through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, or a Bluetooth connection.
  • Send to Kindle:  If you prefer reading on your Kindle, Libby can send your titles to that device.  (U.S. libraries only).   For Kindle Fire devices—find more information below.
  • Browse, search, and discover:  On Libby, you have access to the same great titles you are currently seeing on the legacy app, while soon being able to access even more content through this state-of-the-art app, such as Universal Class – more news to follow.
