Meet Libby/Overdrive

Digital E-books and E-audio for kids!

Download the Libby App free from the Apple or Google Play store to borrow e-books and e-audio from your library. This app allows you to access e-books and e-audio across your devices. Or browse the CW MARS Overdrive Kids collection in your browser.

To get started, simply enter your home library and card number and follow Libby's instructions, or sign in using the same information in Overdrive. There are potential wait times on e-books and e-audio (just like other library materials), but don't worry, as soon as your materials are ready Libby/Overdrive will let you know!

Never used Libby/Overdrive before and unsure how it works? Check out this quick "how to" video that will guide you through the simple steps, to get you started.
