Libby help and FAQs

It is important to note that while the Libby app was created by Overdrive, it is separate from the Overdrive app. The original Overdrive app is still available, so you can choose whichever one you prefer. You do not need both, but if you already have the Overdrive app, maybe give Libby a try and see if it is a better fit.
