Libby Update

Mar 29, 2021

OverDrive has some exciting new updates coming to the Libby app! Once the changes have gone live, there will be updates to Libby Help and Resource Center how-to videos.  

Tag enhancements: In response to partner and user feedback, we’re making several updates to help readers better organize their books using Tags. With this release, users will be able to receive notifications when the next issue of a favorite magazine is available, sync their tags across devices, automatically tag borrowed titles, and more. 

Design updates: Libby’s look and feel continues to evolve as we develop new features to help your library delight more users. Noteworthy design updates in this release will include (preview to right - subject to change):

  • More prominent display of your library’s colors throughout the app
  • Relocation of catalog guides to the Library home screen
  • A refreshed footer navigation
    • Spyglass icon: Run a search
    • Library card icon: Go to Library
    • Bookstack: Go to Shelf
    • Clock: Open activity timeline

These design updates support OverDrive's commitment to make Libby more accessible for all users, including those who rely on screen readers and other assistive technologies. 

Search improvements for users with multiple library cards: Some users have access to more than one digital collection, and over the years, we’ve received requests from them for an easier way to search across their saved libraries. With the next update, users will be able to tap the library card icon next to a title in search results to see copies and availability for that title at their other saved libraries.
