E-BOOKS & DIGITAL MEDIA
Borrow e-books, audiobooks, and magazines with Libby, the new app from OverDrive.
Use Libby in a web browser at libbyapp.com or download the Libby app on iOS and Android devices.
You will need your C/W MARS library card number and account password to sign in and start borrowing.
Kindle Fire users can sideload Libby onto their device manually with our APK (Android Package file), since Amazon has not yet accepted our submission of the Libby app to the Amazon Appstore. Once the APK is installed, the Libby app will appear and function like any other app on your Fire tablet.
Note: The Libby APK is supported on Fire tablets with Fire OS 5+. Your downloading steps may vary slightly depending on your device’s generation and operating system version.
