OverDrive App User? It's Time to Switch to Libby

Attention, OverDrive app users!

At the end of April 2023, OverDrive will discontinue the OverDrive app. It is time to switch to Libby, OverDrive's newer app to browse, check out, and enjoy the Iowa City Public Library's eBooks, audiobooks, and digital magazine collection. All of your loans, holds, and wish list items will carry over to Libby when you make the switch.

Give Libby a try!

Libby has some pretty nice features, including:

  • A central bookshelf for all loans and holds
  • Tags to categorize books however you'd like--you can even sync your OverDrive wish list into a tag
  • Compatability with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Available in multiple languages.
  • Customizable notifications for ready holds, new magazine issues, and more

No app? No problem.

If Libby isn't for you, you can always use your web browser to read eBooks and magazines or listen to audiobooks. You can login to your account through icpl.overdrive.com, check out a title, and choose "Read now in browser." Click here for more information on OverDrive Read.  

Libby also has a web browser format. It has all the same great features as the app. Click here to access Libby for your browser.
