Wisconsin's Digital Library Updates

Meet libby, the OverDrive App

OverDrive app

A new OverDrive app for Wisconsin's Digital Library will be available to the public in August from the Apple Store, Google Play or Microsoft. Library staff can now preview Libby, the one tap reading app for phones or tablets, and then attend a training at 10:00 July 14. The training will cover how to get first-time users started with finding their library and logging in, finding ebooks and digital audiobooks, and reading or listening to borrowed titles.  The session includes a chat-based Q&A with OverDrive to answer the questions you might have about Libby. Register to attend the webinar or to receive the recording and PDF:    https://cc.readytalk.com/r/pkfou8cl8mb3&eom
