The sister-app to OverDrive Media Console
We are excited to launch a new app in addition to our OverDrive Media Console service called Libby, that should make eBook and eAudio use more user friendly than ever before. New features and a cleaner design allows patrons to check out eBooks and eAudios more smoothly and without authorization on devices.
Libby will not be replacing the OverDrive Media Console App at this time. Existing users can continue using the previous version without any worry of it being discontinued.
