Beginning in early 2017, C/W Mars introduced a new app for Android and iOS called “Libby”. Libby provides a much more intuitive interface than the previous method of downloading books and audiobooks from Overdrive and items are easier to locate once downloaded. Libby for iPhone and iPad can be downloaded from the App Store here and Libby for Android devices can be downloaded from the Google Play Store hereNote that, as an app, Libby isn’t available for use on PC or Mac.
