What is Libby?
Libby is the new mobile app from OverDrive for reading ebooks and listening to audiobooks for free from Stratford Public Library.
Download the App
You can search in the app for the library name, city, or postal code. SPL can be found when you search downloadLibrary. Or, tap a library under "your libraries" to view its collection.
To save a library, add a card for it (under the munu, look for Library Cards).
You can access your Shelf from the bottom-right of the app.
Even if you switch libraries, you'll find your loans, holds, tags, and activity from all of your saved libraries on your Shelf.
