Cell phone image with OverDrive message

Still use the classic OverDrive app on your device? It’s time to switch! The classic OverDrive app’s sunset date has been pushed back to the end of April 2023. You will now see a message when you open the OverDrive app that says “In early 2023, the OverDrive app will be discontinued. Upgrade to Libby today.

This is the final reminder! After the OverDrive app is sunset, the app will no longer work. Users who try to access the library’s collection in the OverDrive app will see a message informing them they now must upgrade to Libby in order to access the collection.

Users can easily download the Libby app now:

Download on the App Store
Get it on Google Play

Note that while Amazon has not yet accepted the submission of the Libby app to the Amazon Appstore, users with Kindle Fire devices can also “sideload” Libby manually by visiting the below link. (The exception being on Kindle Fire devices that are too old to be compatible).
