Digital E-Books: OverDrive / Libby

The Waterbury Public Library offers a wide collection of e-books that are downloadable for free with your library card. We use the OverDrive/Libby platform for our e-books. There is a 2 book at a time limit.

Getting started with the Libby app

The new Libby app is the easiest way to get started with digital e-books from our library. Libby is available for Android, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch), and Windows 10.

Step 1

Install the Libby app from your device’s app store.

Step 2

Open Libby and find the Waterbury Public Library. You can search by library name, city, or zip code.

Step 3

Browse our collection and borrow a title. When prompted, sign in with your library card. If you don’t know your number, give us a call at 244-7036. If you know your number but the number is not recognized, your card might be expired. Give us a call and we will verify your current information and renew your card for you.

Step 4

Borrowed titles appear on your Shelf and download to the app automatically when you’re connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you’re offline.

From your Shelf, you can:

  • Tap Open book or Open audiobook to start reading or listening to a title.
  • Tap the cover image, then Send to Device to send a book to Kindle.
