Getting Started Guides

Tablets, phones and Windows 10 computers

Content can be downloaded directly to your device using the Libby app. Downloaded titles cannot be copied to other devices.

Note: The Libby app is not yet accessible for screen readers. For an accessible app, please see the instructions below for the OverDrive app.


*Not sure if your Kobo supports direct downloads? Connect the device to a Wi-Fi network and tap the Sync button. When your Kobo has finished updating, open the menu and tap on Settings. If OverDrive is listed under Settings, then your Kobo supports direct downloads. If not, then Adobe Digital Editions is required to download and open OverDrive eBooks on your Kobo.
