About OverDrive & the Libby App



Libby App Doesn't Work on Your Device?



Setting Your Default Due Date Lengths

When you first sign up for OverDrive, typically it assigns you the shortest checkout period for items (EX: one week for an audiobook or book rather than 2 or 3 weeks). You can set your preferred, default checkout durations by logging into the site (this cannot be done in the app).



Returning Items Early



Submitting a Support Ticket

If you are having technical issues with a title not downloading properly and you are given an error message, library staff can submit a support ticket to OverDrive on your behalf. Here is the info we will need you to provide to us so we can pass it on to OverDrive.

Support Ticket Info



Overdrive acquired RBdigital and imported their audiobook and magazine titles into the Overdrive collection in the Fall of 2020.

You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great ebooks and audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby. If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.
