Libby is great! I really enjoy being able to access books with such ease
By Book Lover 53
I like having accessibility to books on my phone. Reading is an enjoyable pass time I cherish Thanks for making it easer
Has opened up a world of books! 5/5
By Ben in Berkeley
A lot of people say that they love reading paper books. The way they feel, holding them in their hand. And I get that.
But man! I have a huge list of tagged books in Libby that I can download at any time. I’ve read so many series, so many genres.
I can check out and download essentially as many books as I want, from home or anywhere in the world. No more late return fees. No more worrying about library hours. No more bag full of heavy books on flights. If I have my phone, I have access to more books than I could ever read. Essentially all the books I could ever want. I recommend this app to pretty much everyone and I’m always surprised when people seem ambivalent. But you can’t save everyone!
Download this app, go get a few local library cards and enjoy free, endless books for life.
Not the best app you can read on 3/5
By kiss me cause im cute
I can read about a lot of things but there are some books that I really want to read that are not on Libby. You should make Libby where you can write stories too and you will be able to look in other books for stuff you might want to put in your book. Maybe you should add a lot more creativity to this boring app. I don’t really like this app because of that so I hope you can make it a lot better. The only good things on this app are that you can read books and I think the readers probably would want you to add some more stuff to this app. You could add that you can draw right anything you could desire. That would be one of the only thing that you could add to this app to make it a five star app. If you can’t do all of that at least give the apps more books and maybe I’ll give it a four star but I said maybe not yes. Whoever made this app is just trying to take it easy but if you want a five star app then add more stuff to this app but don’t make any worse. This is how you can make it worse. One take away books. Two have a bug. Three not have categories. Those are ways to make it worse so don’t do that but also it’s already bad enough so fix it!
Easy to manage loans 5/5
So much easier to manage my audiobooks than opening the library website.
Nice app. 5/5
Nice app. Easy to learn.
DARK MODE 5/5
I enjoy this app and I can wait to the new update to be ready and this app can match my device settings.
Libby App 5/5
The app is very intuitive . Thanks for putting it out there !
Good app could be better 5/5
By Illinois Luddite
Major complaint is that my wish list does not sync between devices. Loans do but not wish list. I would also like to see a landscape option for smart phones
Bluetooth blocked by location check 3/5
By Mrs. Tepper
For no good reason, Libby checks location before every Bluetooth connection. I can’t start an audiobook in a parking garage, I need to start it after driving out—a safety problem. If the connection is interrupted in an area with tall buildings, reconnection is delayed or fails—another safety problem. There is no reason to check location a dozen times each hour; if there is some reason to do this WITHOUT notification in iPhone settings, there is no reason to stop operating while waiting out a signal delay.
Latest update disabled the timer option.
I am so grateful to the Austin Public Library for the many and varied audiobooks! Many times a hardback comes out and as soon as it is available as an audiobook the library orders it. Really a wonderful thing for choice!
It needs to have more books 3/5
I wish you had complete sets of books. I have begun several series, only to find you don’t have all the books available. It is disheartening, to be excited about the next book, and find it unavailable.
Polish author in the Alexandrian library of The People 5/5
Truly great read. Complex story intertwined with history and esoteric sparks.
Kind of like watching an independent movie at the slightly snobbish film festival ;)
Beautifully-designed app 5/5
By Summer Jazz
Very intuitive! Helps me read in any corner of the day. Integrates with your public library app / card.
Very slow to update! 2/5
By liz in WI
Although I love Libby, lately, the books I read in the app take FOREVER to update. Often, I can’t open the book at all. This is after I have downloaded the book! With one book, I ended up using another app to finish it! Obviously, Libby has some work to do on its app!!
I love Libby 5/5
By Hy Bon
Very happy with Libby loads of audio books available at my finger tips.
Easy and works great 5/5
I loved the ease of use of this apps! Syncing works all the time!
Love Libby But 5/5
I recently replaced my iPhone and now I can’t get Libby on the iPhone to prompt me current location of book if I read on my iPad. I’ve deleted the app on both devices and set up again but still will not sync. Suggestions?
More Stephen king audiobooks 5/5
Could you guys get more Stephen king audiobooks in your library?
Great app to use with Library Card 5/5
By Seattle song
Enjoying this app thoroughly.
Great layout 5/5
I like knowing I can browse a library at the tip of my fingers. I like the simplicity of the app as well.
Best book app ever 5/5
You do not have to buy books
Libby app 5/5
By Jan CVS
Love this easy to use way of getting a book on loan, totally satisfied with this app!!
Good, not Great 3/5
This app could be more user friendly. One thing I dislike, when I have a book that I have checked out and it’s time to renew I can’t if others have it on hold. You would think I would be able to renew since I already have it out.
It took me a while 5/5
After being an OverDrive user for many years it took me a while to get used to the Libby app. Now that I've used it for a while I am really enjoying it. So easy to use with multiple library's and very intuitive. If you're on the fence, give it a try. Once you get used to it you won't be disappointed.
By Libby Liker
I love how I can read books for free, but I don’t like to wait to read books. Also, sometimes there are glitches.
Love the App! 5/5
No more library fees! An amazing collection and great for while you are traveling—plus it is Free!!!!
Syncing across devices is now broken 1/5
Can no longer sync between phone and iPad.
Fantastic app 5/5
I love this app. It saves me a huge amount of money and also saves me physically going to the library which I never have time to do. The app is available 24/7.
Excellent app 5/5
Easy and intuitive. Looking forward to the list of available audiobooks growing.
Very good selection and so easy to use 5/5
This is the best source for free reading of significant books, you really want to read. Very good selection. Many available for borrow, others you can place a hold. Readable with or without the Kindle app.
The downsides are that not all the books in the WLS are available and under no circumstance can you keep a book more that 2 weeks by paying a fine. For older books you can just re-borrow, newer books you have to buy or get back in the cue to read the last few pages.
Audio is good but would like better navigation options 3/5
Just switched from overdrive app. I wish this app had better navigation by chapter in the scroll bar or chapter skip forward and back options. Also am missing more options on the timer- why just 30 mins? Thanks for considering this feedback. I’ll be using this app daily!
Libby is great ! 5/5
This is really easy to use. Love it. Thanks. Love this when traveling!! Currently in Greece 😊
Best app ever! 5/5
I love this app. So much so, that I tell everyone about it.
Because I’m unable to get around much, borrowing from the library through Libby, makes getting audiobooks so much easier. The app is easy to use.
Stop making me re-sign in 1/5

White screen 1/5
Updated my app 3 days ago and it hasn’t loaded anything but a white screen. This app is now garbage. #ThanksObama
Great app 5/5
By Dr Horselover
I love Libby! I use it to find my next read and it also keeps me company while driving with the audiobooks it has available.
Bad update 1/5
Ver since the latest update Libby has not worked well. Whenever I try and swipe the crescent moon icon down to shut off on a timer, the screen goes black and nothing I do will get the audiobook back.
So easy 5/5
Libby is so easy and convenient I can listen to two or three books a week.
Love it! 5/5
Super easy to use and love that when you get the book again it puts you right where you left off. Sometimes hard to get through the books in just 14 days though.
Need Apple Watch App 4/5
Awesome app! It works really well and smoothly across devices, and it’s really easy to use. My biggest thing is that I wish they had an Apple Watch app so I could listen to my books on the go while leaving my phone behind. If there was an Apple Watch app, I would easily give this 5 stars!
I love love love this 5/5
This apps have helped me save money
One of the apps I share with others. A blessing. 5/5
By Linda Rose
I use Libby everyday.
Well stocked 5/5
By Amarillo Jim
I have been reading my style books from this library on line for four to five years and have not exhausted their selections yet. I highly recommend them for selection and convenience. Thanks for allowing me to be a customer here.
I love the library! 5/5
So wonderful to have so many books at my fingertips. I love that I can knit and listen at the same time. So many books to choose from and so easy to use.
Splendid lightweight reader/player 5/5
By That Locked-in Feeling
A very nice interface for reading and listening. The listening interface is particularly nice. It has a play/pause button and skip forward or back by 15 seconds which makes it easy to use with little attention. A fuller interface is also available.
Very user friendly 5/5
By Prescott Review
So happy a friend recommended Libby. It is very easy to use and has been wonderful for traveling. Not sure I’ve mastered all the ways to search for audiobooks, the I like the ‘available now’ option.
Love Libby! 5/5
I have been using Overdrive & Libby for a long while and it just keeps easier and easier! I really enjoy telling my friends about it. Diann Diangelous
