Starting with Libby

Libby takes you step by step through the process.

  • In the Libby app or on the Libby website, follow the prompts to find your library and sign in with a current library membership.
  • Browse your library’s collection and borrow a title.
  • Borrowed titles appear under Shelf > Loans and download to the app/computer, so you can read them when you’re offline.
  • From your Loans, you can:
    • Tap Read With… to choose where you’d like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.
    • Tap Open Audiobook or Open Magazine to start reading or listening to that title.
    • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.
