OverDrive on the computer and for eReaders

OverDrive is the “classic” platform for the Libby collection and is compatible with additional devices, including most eReaders, such as the Amazon Kindle, Macs, PCs, and Windows mobile devices. It also allows for transfers to MP3 players from computers. Accessing our Libby/OverDrive collection through the classic platforms connects you to the same titles as Libby just with a few different features.

Replacement Library Card?


Am I connected to the right Library System? We get this question often. When you first log into the Libby app or Overdrive with your library card, you will be instructed to select your library/ library system Be sure to connect to the correct Monroe County Library system (NY). One easy giveaway is that our library system connection does not ask for a PIN when connecting to Libby/Overdrive.

Can I recommend a title for my library? Yes, title additions can be recommended by visiting your local MCLS Member library, sending a title request using our Comments, Suggestions, and Feedback form, or adding a “Notify Me” tag to titles of interest in the Libby App.

Signing out– If you want to sign out of Libby (and remove your data from your device), you can remove your library cards or reset the app. You may want to do this if you’re using a shared device (such as a public computer at the library).

What happens when my hold becomes available? Users will receive a notification when their hold becomes available. They’ll have 3 days to borrow it, or they can choose to have it delivered later. If a user has a hold delivered later, they’ll keep their place in the holds list, but the hold will go to the next person in line. Learn more about Notifications
