Overdrive app to be discontinued

FYI from your library: The Overdrive app is being replaced with the Libby app on April 23, 2023

Dear Wayne Library user,

As you have probably learned, the Overdrive app which you are currently using to access our Overdrive eBook and audiobook collection is being “retired.” This means that the Overdrive app will no longer work after April 2023. It’s being replaced with a new app named Libby.

This new app, Libby, is how we’ll access Overdrive digital materials going forward.

The Libby app is a little different from the Overdrive app and it took me a couple of weeks to get used to it, but once you get the hang of it I think you will find, as I did, that it works just as well as the Overdrive app. All your checkouts and holds will move to the new Libby app and you won't lose your place in line for things you're on hold for.

You can find more information about the switch to Libby, as well as instructions for how to download and set up the new Libby app on your device, at :https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/switchtolibby 

If you would like help switching to the Libby app, please give us a call at 973-694-4272 Ext. 5401 or reply to this email and we’ll set up an appointment to help you get it done. If you’re using a Kindle Fire device, we definitely recommend making an appointment to come see us because adding Libby to a Kindle Fire is more complicated than if you have an Apple or Android device. So please let us do the hard work for you, so you can just concentrate on the fun stuff like borrowing digital materials!

Remember, we’re here to help make this transition from the old Overdrive app to the new Libby app as easy as possible. If you have any questions or want to make an appointment to stop in, just call us at 973-694-4272 Ext 5401
