What’s the difference between OverDrive and Libby?
Libby is a new app released by OverDrive. It has the same collection of titles as the OverDrive app – it’s just a different way to access the same digital library collection. Libby is a fast and attractive digital browsing experience.

Libby is compatible with Android and iOS devices, with Kindle Fire compatibility coming soon. Libby is great if you just want to download a book to your Android or iOS phone or tablet.

OverDrive is the “classic” app, and is compatible with more devices, including Kindle Fire, Macs, PCs, and Windows mobile devices. It also allows for transfer to MP3 players from computers.

    • For help on using Libby, click on the following link: Libby Help
    • When selecting your home library, we are listed as “North Madison County Public Library”
    • The pin should have been given at registration.  Call or ask a librarian for help if it has been lost or forgotten.
