How to Download eBooks and eAudiobooks

Getting started with Libby

With Libby, you can borrow free ebooks, digital audiobooks, and magazines from your library. All you need is a library card.


Step 1

Download or open Libby on your device:

Step 2

In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a library card.


Step 3

Browse your library's catalog and borrow a title.


Your selection will vary based on your library, since each library chooses what titles and formats to offer in Libby.


Step 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.

On your Shelf, tap loans at the top of the screen. From there, you can:

  • Tap Read With... to choose where you'd like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.

  • Tap Open In Libby, Open Magazine, or Open Audiobook to start reading or listening in the app.

  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

Happy reading!
