Borrow Free E-Books With Libby App

From digital-content distributor OverDrive, this app gives readers free, on-the-go access to a trove of titles from multiple libraries.

With Libby, the latest app from digital-content distributor OverDrive, readers get free, on-the-go access to a trove of titles from multiple libraries. All you need is a smartphone, a reading device and a library card (or three).

For several years, OverDrive has helped bookworms borrow and download content from their local library on their e-readers. Libby incorporates the same features, including a ledger to place holds on unavailable titles, and adds some new ones. Libby allows access to multiple library systems if you have a valid card for each—if, say, your main residence is up north but you spend winters in the Sunbelt. And soon, you’ll even be able to get a new library card through the app if you live within a participating library’s area of service.

Libby is available for Apple and Android devices. Select your local library when prompted, enter your card number and then browse what’s available. Step four: Get lost in an e-book.
