Using OverDrive & Libby

Contains ebooks and audiobooks.

OverDrive is a digital library that contains both ebooks and audiobooks. The collection is curated by the Plum Creek Library System.

  • There is no monthly limit for checkouts.
  • You can have 4 items checked out and 10 items on hold at the same time.
  • Each item can be checked out for either 14 or 21 days, depending on your preferences. (Learn how to change your checkout period preferences here!)

Libby App for iOS, Android, & Amazon.

You can use OverDrive on your computer or on most smartphones and tablets. It can be accessed through the OverDrive website or the Libby app. You can also transfer OverDrive ebooks to most ereaders with a black & white screen.

The Libby app can be installed directly from the Android and Apple app stores. If you don't see Libby in your Android or Apple app store, your device may be too old to run Libby. You can still use the OverDrive website.

On a Kindle Fire, you'll need to manually install the Libby app. Download and step-by-step processes here: https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/kindlefire Libby is not available for early model Kindle Fire devices. If the download does not work, your device may be too old.

Kindles with a black & white screen, like the Kindle Paperwhite, cannot install apps. Use the OverDrive website and choose the "kindle version" of an ebook to send your books to your black & white screen Kindle.

OverDrive has a great set of tutorials available on their website. You can view them here: https://help.libbyapp.com/
