Start Libby App and Stop OverDrive App

If you're still using the OverDrive app for downloading eBooks and eAudiobooks, you'll want to get started with the Libby app right away. You can download the Libby app to your Apple (iOS) or Android device, or select the web browser option for your computer or any internet device with a web browser. Amazon/Kindle Fire tablet users can now download the Libby App for Amazon/Kindle Fire tablests with special instructions, since the app isn't officially available on the Amazon store yet.

The OverDrive app was removed from the Apple App Store, Google Play store, and Microsoft store on Feb. 23, 2022. The OverDrive app will no longer work on devices starting May 1, 2023.

If you are an Alachua, Putnam, or Levy county resident and don't already have a standard library card, we encourage you to visit any of our 12 locations with your photo ID and proof of local residence (an updated driver's license will work) to get a full-service card for all digital content (some content is limited to Alachua County residents only). Alachua County residents can also sign up with a cell phone number after downloading the Libby App or visiting, or sign up for a digital card online.

Get started now!

With the Libby app, you can:

  • Add multiple library cards to your account
  • Tag books you liked or didn't like, or make your own tags like "To-Be-Read"
  • Send the same title to another device that you would like to read/listen on
  • Change font, font size, and lighting
  • Create bookmarks
  • Select your check out time period to 7, 14, or 21 days (some high demand eBooks are limited to 14 days)
  • Return items early when you're done
  • Review common help options
  • Contact support
