There’s a new app that you can use for your ebooks with your Library card. It’s called Libby and it’s by Overdrive. It’s a new, more user friendly e-book, e-audio book and e-magazine borrowing app.

St. Lawrence County library users have a new e-reader app available
By MICHELLE McLAGAN
St. Lawrence County library users have access to downloadable e-books and audio books via Overdrive, a service we implemented in 2011 that allows users to read (or listen to) books on their mobile phones, tablets, Kindles, and dedicated e-reader devices. All you need is a device, a library card, and your PIN number to sign up for Overdrive or access your account.
Overdrive has recently added a new application (app) to their offerings - users now have a choice between the original Overdrive app and the new Libby app. Both apps are developed by Overdrive, provide users access to all of the e-books books in our catalog, and provide the basic features and functions necessary to read or listen to books, place holds, create wish lists, and manage accounts.
WEEKLY QUOTE “How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” ― Dr. Seuss
