Just a reminder that OverDrive’s new e-reading app, Libby, is available for download in all app stores! We recommend that you give Libby a try — we’ve found it to be really easy to use.
If you have any questions about Libby or OverDrive, you can contact us at the Multimedia desk by either phone or email.
We are excited to announce that OverDrive has released a new and improved app for ebook and audiobook lending called Libby. Libby simplifies the setup and lending process for ebooks and audiobooks, and was designed based on user and library feedback. Libby is available now for download in all app stores.
If you prefer to use the OverDrive app, it will continue to be fully functioning for the foreseeable future. We recommend that you download Libby and give “her” a try, though! The staff here at CCL has found Libby to be extremely easy to set up and use. Let us know what you think!
The OverDrive Media Console app is now available for NOOK HD, NOOK HD+, NOOK Tablet and NOOK Color which will enable wireless borrowing of library eBooks and MP3 audiobooks. NOOK 1st Edition and NOOK Simple Touch users can only get eBooks to their device by transferring them through the Adobe Digital Editions software on their computer.
You can find the OverDrive Media Console app in the NOOK apps storefront. You will need a NOOK account in order to download the app. After the app has been installed it has to be authorized with an Adobe ID. If you had previously used Adobe Digital Editions to transfer eBooks onto your NOOK you can use that same Adobe ID. Then click on “Get Books” to locate your library, browse or search the eBook and MP3 eAudiobook collections and, after entering a valid library card, check out and download the title to the app.
