Libby / OverDrive

The Libby App

Borrow ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, and more from your local library for free! Libby is the newer library reading app by OverDrive, loved by millions of readers worldwide.

Changes to Libby/OverDrive (April 2023)

Yes, will do still offer Libby! To improve our digital offerings, reduce wait times, and provide our patrons with the best possible service & selection, NTPL has switched to a new OverDrive collection with the Ontario Library Service.  NTPL patrons won’t experience much disruption, but here are a few things to know:

  • Any holds will have transferred to your new account (PLEASE DELETE your Simcoe County card BEFORE adding the Ontario Library Services card to ensure your holds successful transfer).
  • Unfortunately, reading history, recommendations, or tags associated with the Simcoe County collection did not transfer (unless you manually transferred your borrowing history prior to the switch).
