  • Easier onboarding for new users
  • A unified bookshelf for all loans and holds
  • Support for multiple library cards
  • Direct user support from OverDrive
  • A best-in-class eBook reader
  • Push notifications for ready holds
  • Same look and feel on both Android and iOS devices
  • Ability to export notes and highlights
  • Tags to track favorite reads, wish lists, and more
  • Compatibility with Apple CarPlay (Note: Android Auto is supported in both apps.)
  • Sonos speaker integration
  • Support for Extras, including the streaming video service Kanopy

Users needing help making the transition to Libby are encouraged to make an appointment with FVRLibraries staff.
