Changes to Libby/Overdrive
On Tuesday, March 1, we will be merging with a large consortium of libraries called Indiana Digital Library. We are excited for the change, because it will give our patrons access to a collection of books and audiobooks from almost 200 libraries across the state. The Indiana State Library will be paying the platform fees for the group. That means 100% of local library funds will be used to purchase books and audiobooks.
The new consortium will also have a team of librarians who will be actively monitoring holds and purchasing additional copies for books that have long wait lists. This means you shouldn’t have to wait as long to get the books you want to read.
Some things to note:
You will need to log in to your app again, using the same username and password you currently use.
Items you currently have checked out and your hold list will still be there when you log back in.
Your reading history will not be there. If you want to keep your reading history, you can download it. Here’s how:
Libby – exporting reading history
OverDrive-exporting reading history
If you currently use the OverDrive app, you might consider making the switch to the Libby app. The OverDrive app is no longer supported and the Libby app is OverDrive’s updated version of it’s original app.
We expect the merger to go smoothly, but if you run into trouble, you can always email us at email@example.com or give us a call at 574-279-0177.
