Our New Friend Libby
It’s no secret how much I love e-audiobooks. I’ve been known to chat to anyone about them at the library and in my book clubs (and at the grocery store, the coffee shop, the laundromat…) They are just so easy to download and I’m a bit of a give-upper when it comes to confusing technological processes. That’s why I was excited when I heard that Overdrive released a brand new user-friendly app to use! Meet my new friend, Libby. Not only does Libby offer amazing audiobooks and ebooks for free with your library card, but it does it with a much more visually appealing and easy-to-navigate interface than before. Libby gives you the option of previewing audiobooks, whether or not they are immediately available, which is great for those of us who judge a book pretty quickly by its narrator.
If you’re tech savvier than I am, feel free to just head to your preferred app store and get going on Libby. If you think you might need more help, stop by the Info Desk in the Reference Room at the Main Library to ask us for help.
