As of May 1, 2023 the OverDrive app is transitioning to the Libby app. Library users will now need to use the Libby app to borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and digital magazines from Delaware County Libraries. We know this may be a tough transition and we're here to help!
Getting started with Libby
Visit the app store on your Android or iOS (iPad/iPhone) device. Search for "Libby" and download. For Kindle users, please see separate instructions here. Libby can also be accessed in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser by visiting www.libbyapp.com.
Once in app, follow the prompts and search for "Delaware County Library System" as your library. Then, sign in with a valid library card.
Browsing and Borrowing
Browse the collection or search for a title. When you find a title you want, tap "Borrow" to borrow the title or "Place Hold" to place a hold on it.
Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf () and download to the app automatically when you're on 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 whether you'd like to open a book in Kindle or Libby.
• Tap "Manage Loan" to see options like "Renew Loan" and "Return Early."
Recommending a Title For Purchase
If you search for a title that is not in our collection, it will say "Notify Me" next to the title in the search results. Tapping "Notify Me" will let us know you are interested in that title and if we decide to purchase it, Libby will notify you. Note: Notifications do not place you in the hold queue automatically. You will need to respond to the notification and place the hold yourself.
