Easy Handout for Using Libby

Downloading to iOS and Android Devices (Overdrive)

You can access Overdrive and all of the titles that you checkout on your mobile device! Overdrive's app, Libby, is easy to use and set up. To get started, just download Libby from Google Play or the iOS App Store.

When you open Libby for the first time, you will go through a few steps to set the app up on your device. The first screen asks if you have a library card - tap "yes."

You are then taken to a screen that asks how you would like Libby to find your library. Select "I'll Search for a Library." 

The next screen asks you to type in the library's name or zip code. Type "MOBIUS" into the bar and select the "MOBIUS Consortium" option.

Select "Choose a Location" on the following screen, then select "Metropolitan Community College" from the drop-down menu that appears.

You will then be given a message that you will have to sign in on your institution's secure site. Select "continue" and enter your student or employee credentials on the next page.

Once you have signed in to Libby, you can use the navigation bar on the bottom of your screen to switch between your "Library" which is where you can search and browse for titles and your "Shelf" which is where you can read the books that you have checked out. 

While in your shelf, to begin reading or listening, all you have to do is tap "Open Book." While you are connected to the internet, your books should automatically download to your device so that you can access them offline.
