Libby is the sister app to OverDrive and accesses the same catalog. However, some patrons find Libby’s simplistic design and app to be easier to use than OverDrive. To get started with Libby, all you need is your library card and pin number. If you don’t have a library card, or have forgotten your pin number, just stop by any NOPL branch and the friendly staff can help you out.

Using Libby on a Mobile Device or Tablet

To sign in to Libby on your mobile device or tablet, you’ll need to follow the steps below:

  1. Download the Libby app from your device’s app store.
    • The app icon should look like this:
  2. Click Sign In
  3. Enter your library card number and pin number
  4. Click Sign In

Libby will automatically sync with your OverDrive account, and any items you have borrowed with OverDrive will appear in the Libby app as well.

Libby also provides helpful tutorials to help you learn how to use the app — these can be accessed by clicking the button in the bottom center of your screen which has a sign that says Tour. If you have any questions along the way, you can click Help.
