The Genesee District Library currently provides two different services to meet your eBook and audiobook needs. They each have their own set of rules and work slightly differently, however there are no late fees with either service. Different content is available on each service, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for on one, try the other.

Libby

A digital library available to browse on your smartphone, tablet, or computer any time you want. Download e-books and audiobooks and listen at your leisure. The Libby app is available for most devices, and makes browsing for books and reading them a breeze.

  • eBooks and audiobooks on Overdrive may checkout for 7, 14, or 21 days. Videos may checkout for 3 days.
  • There are a limited number of copies of each title available. You may have to place a hold if all current copies are unavailable.
  • No late fees! When the due date for an item arrives, the item is automatically checked in and disappears from your account.
  • You can checkout 5 items at a time.  If you finish an item and no longer need it, you can return it early.

Patrons, please note: the Libby app does not work on certain older devices.  So, if you’re having problems, it’s possible that your app needs updating. A workaround is to use the web browser on the device to access the Libby website. Otherwise, you may need to update either your operating system, or your device.
