Now is the time to the Libby app! The OverDrive app will cease to work at the end of April. MPHPL encourages you to make the switch to Libby, our newer reading app immediately. Libby is made by the same company, with the same goal of connecting you to our library and to your favorite eBooks, eAudiobooks and magazines.
Why is this happening now?
The Libby app was launched in 2017, with the goal of creating a simple and intuitive library app that builds on the core experience from the OverDrive app. The company closely reviewed what was working with the OverDrive app and what could be improved. During this time, the company didn’t want to interrupt the experience for users, so the two apps have both been available.
Thanks to feedback from librarians and readers like you, Libby is now a great app for everyone and there’s no longer a reason to have two apps that do the same thing. If you’ve enjoyed using the OverDrive app, we really hope you’ll love Libby.
