What do I need to use Libby?

Libby Library App

Libby is the perfect app for anyone interested in finding ways to read more in their life. You can borrow audio-books to enjoy in traffic, while doing chores or walking the dog. You can enjoy an eBook on the train or while relaxing in bed. Libby connects you to countless books and stories even if you can’t get to the library and you never have to worry about late fees or losing the books. You’ll find everything from bestsellers and classics to nonfiction, children’s books, romance, self-improvement and so much more.

What are some of your favorite books?

I will read anything by Neil Gaiman and I also love modern fairy tales like Uprooted by Naomi Novik. The last collection of short stories by Denis Johnson, The Largesse of the Sea is a beautiful reflection on the different lives we all lead and I adore N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Fantasy series.
