Does anyone here use overdrive and libby?Does anyone here use overdrive and libby? Yari #questionnaire
Overdrive but I only use it for audiobooks from the library.
Overdrive. I tried Libby for a brief 15 minutes and decided I liked overdrive better.
Libby is getting yo me because every single title i want to read is check out and wont be back for 10 to 17 weeks?
Libby is much better since they released it. I love how it shows all of my check outs from all of my libraries in one spot.
So i can use overdrive w out libby? I thought i need it to use both
No overdrive and Libby are the same Libby was just overdrives make over u might say
Thank you 🙂
I use overdrive
Just started using Libby. I love it.
I use Overdrive all the time and love it!
I use Overdrive and I love it. I didn’t bother with Libby because I’m already know how to navigate overdrive well.
Can I hook those to a kindle? I never heard of them.
Yes i guess you can..li by gave me the option to do so
You need to check and see if your library uses the service first. When you check out a Book amazon opens and you can choose to have it sent to your kindle or whichever device.
You can check out Kindle books with them. They only have an OverDrive app for the Kindle fire. I use Libby on my phone and send books to my Kindle through my Amazon account.
Thanks I will download and check it out. Excites now!
You can also use the Overdrive website too instead of the app. Sometimes I do that if I’m on my computer and need to check to see if a book is available.
Yes you can . Just dl overdrive app and when you dl a book make sure you just hit the dl ePub and it opens in overdrive
I love Overdrive! I dont know anything about Libby.
It is overdrive with a makeover .They say it is supposed to be easier to navigate than overdrive.
@Angela overdrive isn’t hard to navigate at all. I love it
I don’t think it is hard to navigate either.But I work at the library and its what we tell everyone about Libby.Personally I will stick with overdrive.
@Angela does your library host a bookclub? Mine is thinking about starting one and we could use some tips or ideas!
@Heather right now we have more kids programs than anything else.
@Angela same at our library….which is great of course….but hoping to get a bookclub going…fingers crossed!
I love overdrive! When you checkout a book, if it has a kindle option it’ll give you the option to download to kindle by simply clicking a button and taking you to its amazon page! Most of them have kindle counterparts, I’ve only had a handful that would have had to be read through the app
I use overdrive. My library doesn’t offer Libby.
Libby is the same as OverDrive. It’s just a more user-friendly version.
I know that, but my library is not offered through Libby. I’ve tried a few times.
I use Overdrive and like it. I read Libby is from Overdrive, basically the same. Is it true? Any differences?
Yes it is the same but it is different look .I found it took longer to loud pages on my internet connection so I stuck with overdrive. I work at the library and everyone says it supposed to be easier to navigate.
@Angela, thank you! I stay with Overdrive and Hoopla for now.
I use libby
I use Libby if I can’t find the book on kindle unlimited and Libby happens to have it.
I use Overdrive, mainly for audiobooks.
Yeapers…. awesome awesome
Libby…and love it!!!
overdrive works with my local library
I use overdrive but also hoopla, freading, and axis. This was before Libby. All these are connected to your library. Does Libby incorporate all these? FYI hoopla has tons of audio books and can be borrowed for 3 weeks.
Oooo…i never heard of those..i will have to check thanks
Hoopla and Axis apps are easy to download. I use hoopla most of all ebooks, audios and even music. Freading has a lot of ebooks, and I’ve found some awesome mysteries. Freading app is a bit convoluted to download. Google instructions. Took me 2 times to get it but worth it!
I use overdrive. Never heard of Libby but I will check it out. Love overdrive!
Libby is just a more user-friendly version of OverDrive. They’re made by the same company.
I use overdrive for library books
I use both. But prefer overdrive.
? Overdrive ?
OverDrive and Libby are the same. Libby is just more user-friendly. I use Libby and love it. I occasionally use Hoopla too.
My local library is on overdrive. I like it unless the book I want is on hold and I’m number 52 in line. ?
I use overdrive to get books from the library! Love it!!
Yup I love overdrive
Overdrive, yes. Love it. Library staff recommended libby, but it wouldn’t even download for me. No issues with overdrive though.
Libby gets heavy use here
Overdrive! Love it
Yep. I don’t have room on my phone for Libby though.
Yes!!! It’s amazing, but I might be biased since I’m a librarian. ?
I use Overdrive occasionally.
I have both but using Libby more lately.
I use Libby and Hoopla
I love overdrive!
Love overdrive! It is a wait sometimes, especially with newer books, but worth it for the cost-FREE!!
I do! I am able to use for both ebooks and audiobooks
Both! I prefer Libby though. ?
Yes they’re great. I like hoopla too
Yep OVERDRIVE. #audiobookaddiction I have heard over 290 FREE books… and no problems in three years.
I use Overdrive for audio books
Libby!! Its great. Does anyone know what the difference of the two is?
Yes apparently from what I was told is Overdrive is merging or moving to Libby
Libby is just a front-end app for accessing Overdrive libraries. It has some neat features like multiple account handling and in-app reading. Otherwise it’s the same thing as Overdrive.
Love the multiple account feature. Got my local library in Nowhere, SD, and a major library in Fairfax County, Virginia.
I use Overdrive a LOT.
I use overdrive
I do, all the time!
Both! I prefer Libby because it’s more user friendly
I use Libby
Overdrive is available thru our library. ??? on Libby.
I use overdrive and audible
Overdrive is life.
Overdrive is my favorite
I use overdrive. It’s so user friendly.
What’s it for? Can you read books online?
@Lynn You use it to borrow ebooks and audiobooks from the library. I read and listen on my phone. The audiobooks I connect to the car via Bluetooth and listen on the road.
@Brigitta so u can put this app on an iPad?
Lynn Fish As far as I know you can. I also download epub books from places like book funnel to read on overdrive. Check the App store. I’m sure it’s there.
I love it!!!!!
I use overdrive! It’s just the older version of Libby
Is this just for phone or for the computer also?
Phone , tablet or Lap Top. All of mine (295 so far) have been on my Samsung smart phone.
Cheers #audiobookaddiction ?
Use Both. Each one has attributes that are wonderful to use. Borrowing books from your Library is so easy, great to browse and keeps one up-to date on when holds will be approximately ready, books check themselves: no late fees! Another great feature is if the library does not have a book you would like to read & library does not own: if purchased, you are automatically put on wish list. Both Great!
My library changed platforms and uses rbdigital.
Yes all the time
I use libby
Yes I use both for audiobooks
I use both. Overdrive to borrow library books for my ereader. And Libby on my phone to keep track of my holds
Libby is my go to for audiobooks
I use Libby, love it.
Overdrive, rbDigital & Hoopla. All great. Hoopla limits the number of checkouts depending on the plan your library has.
