Q. Why are all the books in Libby checked out?

When I go to Libby/OverDrive, I can never find books that are available to borrow! 


Answer

eBooks and eAudiobooks at Libby/OverDrive are very popular, so it may seem like there's never anything to borrow when you look at the landing page! Happily, there's more below the surface - you just have to know how to find it.  

The quickest way to find borrowable materials in Libby is to filter for availability:

  1. Tap on "Library" in the bottom left of the screen.
  2. Tap on the little + next to "Preferences" in the band across the top middle of the screen.
  3. Tap "Availability" and choose "Available Now".  This will filter out everything that is checked out.

You can also place holds on checked out materials.  You can see how long you'll probably have to wait by tapping the little calendar icon next to the cover. 

Try checking out some of our other eBook/eAudiobook platforms.  The description under the name will tell you a little something about what each platform has to offer.

Finally, please feel free to contact us at any time with questions.  We're happy to help you find just what you want!
