Meet Libby, the new app for OverDrive!

Take Libby with you wherever you go and you’ll never be without free access to ebooks and audiobooks. With Libby, you can find, checkout, and download content from British Columbia’s Library2Go collection. Join us to learn how Libby differs from the previous OverDrive app. (Hint: It’s much easier to use!)

Bring your tablet or mobile device to follow along and get started. Note that this session is for ebooks on tablets and mobile devices only. There may be a separate session discussing ebooks for dedicated e-readers (i.e., Kobos).
