Overdrive/Libby

OverDrive and the Libby app offer thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks, from the latest crime thrillers to timeless classics. Start downloading for free straight away — all you need is a library card.

How it works

Your library card gives you free access to the Libby app, which allows you to download eBooks and eAudio to your phone or tablet.

You can also read the same titles in your browser (such as Chrome, Edge or Firefox) from the Overdrive website, and plug your eReader into your PC to transfer eBooks across to an eReader, such as a Kobo or Nook. Unfortunately, the service isn’t compatible with Kindle eReaders, but it will work with a Fire tablet.
