What is Libby?

A new e-book and audiobook app from OverDrive! Libby has all your favorite OverDrive books (over 9,000), in a new, fun, and user-friendly app.

How do I get it?

The Libby app is available for iOS, Android, and Microsoft tablets and smartphones.
All you need is a McAllen library card and PIN!

How do I use it?

Check out our Libby how-to sheet. This new app couldn't be any easier to use!

What else should I know?

  • Just like the original OverDrive app, you can have up to 6 books at a time for up to 14 days. If you don't renew them, they will automatically expire. No worry about late fees!
  • The "Patron Recommendations" feature and the multiple languages for the app user interface that you loved in the original app will be coming soon, later this fall.
