OverDrive

OverDrive has introduced an alternative app for borrowing ebooks and eaudiobooks from the library. OverDrive will begin inviting OverDrive app users to try Libby, the new app. The OverDrive app will continue to be a viable option for those users and communities that it best serves.

We recommend trying the new app, as users will find it is simpler to use and makes discovering our digital library even easier. All you need is your library card.
