If you’re interested in borrowing ebooks and audiobooks, then you should consider using the Libby app. From literary classics to new raves and bestsellers, there’s nothing that’s missing on the Libby app.  Magazines are not left out as well.  If you cannot stay online for a long period, then you can download books you can read offline. You can also stream the books in real-time so that you can save space on your device. 

Developed by Overdrive, the app works in conjunction with Kindle, which gives you access to as many books as you want.

If you’re into the organization of the books you’re interested in, then you’re in luck. You can make use of tags to create any book lists you want. Here’s the best part: you can maintain positional synchronization across all your devices. 

To explain further, wherever you stop reading on a certain device, you can continue reading from the same place on another device. How good is that? For ebook lovers, you will find the Libby app’s ebook reader to be highly interactive and intuitive. You can highlight words and phrases, define them or get their contextual meaning. Family time can get better when you listen to read-alongs with your family. This will give you the chance to deliberate and rub minds on the contents being readout. This can also help foster a collective understanding of the text being readout.

It is not a secret that so many readers might have visual impairments which may prevent them from reading without stress. Many may also have eye conditions.

  • Libby Rating as compared to Cloud Library

    By nkeefover (Pcmac user)

    I give Libby a 5 star rating. It was so very easy to work with, so easy to figure out. I never had to request help from the library staff. I have read more than 60 audio books using Libby App. Search is easy. Returns are automatic or if you want to return early, no problem it is a simple procedure. Hold worked without a hitch. I cannot praise this App. Enough. Port Saint Lucie Libraries has now switched us to "Cloud Library"for all audio books. I have had one problem after another with this "Cloud Library". App. First of all I cannot seem to set my setting the way I would like. I accidentally requested an e-book on this app. And couldn't figure out how to return it. It was on the app. Showing overdue for awhile, may still,be,out there somewhere. I did go to the library and try to get help, however there seems to be only one person who can help, and she had not responded to my request for help and it has been 2 weeks. And, the gentleman with whom I spoke when I went to the library tried to convince me that it was NOT possible to borrow an ebook in Cloud Library even tho I have a photo of that book indicating that it is in an overdue status. I am looking forward to the day I am asked to review "Cloud Library", I will go into more depth re: my problems working with this App.
  • Fantastic interface

    By Phaikfancy (Pcmac user)

    I’ve only browsed one ebook sample but have listened to several audiobooks and the interface is leaps and bounds better than Hoopla and OverDrive. Cons: I’d give it a 5th star if the sleep timer for audiobooks had more than the 30 minute option (custom timer would be best along with 15 minute intervals up to an hour, then 30 minute intervals thereafter), the UI colors could be customized (at the least a dark mode, but I’d also like to change the blurred background color for audiobooks while in landscape mode), and I could customize my library card color tags/icons? (a minor gripe but two of my cards are too similar in color). I’m also not a fan of the settings menu but I can’t put my finger on why right now... Pros: The book layout is great (Hoopla doesn’t even do landscape or two page mode🤬). As a whole, the Libby interface puts books at your fingertips quickly and offers a sleek & modern yet minimalist design that appeals to the eyes. The sort/refine/preferences works well although an ability to sort series by order in the series both ascending and descending is missing. The ability to sync Libby across multiple devices is FANTASTIC (again, looking at you Hoopla) and saves the hassle of logging in on each device and manually downloading each book (again, Hoopla, sup?). The audio/book sample feature (Hoopla comeon!) is conveniently placed, as is the book sample, review, and jacket information.
  • FREE ebooks & audiobooks w/a library card

    By mh in mn (Pcmac user)

    If you don’t have a library card, go get one NOW! Find out where your closest public library is and go there pronto. OK, call first to ask what proof of residency they might need; they’ll probably say just 1-2 pieces of mail showing your name and address. Or maybe your library system has the application on their website. Download the Libby app and select your library from the list of library systems that appears, enter your library card barcode #, and you’re set! If you haven’t read an ebook before, go for it! You can modify background color, text size, font, and even HIGHLIGHT text or bookmark pages—then go to Reader Settings and scroll down to see all your bookmarks and highlighted passages. The app keeps your book settings so you can close and reopen the app as often as you want. (If you have any problems, just call the library helpdesk—that’s free, too!) Your library may have other ebook apps besides Libby. But Libby is hands-down the best of the two i’m familiar with. If you’re more of an audiobook fan, you can check those out, too, via the app. No more driving anywhere—you can check books out & return them in the app! All age groups, all genres. Mind blowing.
  • Enjoyable

    By ann237 (Pcmac user)

    What an enjoyable book. In my personal opinion, the Author seemed to take more liberty placing himself into the life of Mr. Knight, then wanted. Was it out of selfish reasons or more Nobel reasons? Only Mr. Finkle can answer that. On the other hand, it seemed the book was respectfully written. Mr Knight had expressed concern of how he would be “portrayed”. If he added this one to his reading list, I do hope he was not let down. Mr Knight May of lived his life that others may find odd or crazy. But he was living it, his way. The B&E as well as stealing I found strange. I mean, understandable he saw it as a means of survival. But in the way of how he stated that he was raised being taught morals & never to take help from the Government or handouts from others. Which is why he never applied for any type of assistance, or accept help from those who offered support. But how does one decide to steal & invade the homes of others, which is morally wrong, causing a feeling of fear & being violated, just as I am sure Mr. Knight would experience if someone “helped themselves “ to his home in the forest. From accepting offered support? Granted there was the fear offered support was a trap, but when raised as what seems to be right & wrong how does one choose the gray, in a world of black & white? I am glad to know that this book was held to accountability by a number of fact checkers. Especially when we live in a world where reality & fake seem to be merged.
