Getting started with Libby

With Libby, you can borrow free ebooks and digital audiobooks from your library. All you need is a library card.

Step 1

Install the Libby app from your device's app store.

Or, visit libbyapp.com in your Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or Edge (Chromium) browser.

Step 2

In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a library card.

Step 3

Browse your library's catalog and borrow a title.

Your selection will vary based on your library, since each library chooses what titles and formats to offer in Libby.

Step 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf (Shelf) and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.

On your Shelf, tap loans (at the top of the screen). From there, you can:

  • Tap Read With... to choose where you'd like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.
  • Tap Open in Libby to start reading or listening in the app.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

Happy reading!
