[ARCHIVED] What’s New with Libby?


The Libby eBooks & audiobooks app was recently updated to make your digital library faster and easier to use than ever before. Enhancements include:

  • Easy-to-customize lending periods: You can still choose your own default lending periods for the digital formats offered by your library. If you want to extend or shorten a lending period for just one title, you can now do that before you borrow the title. 
  • A history of what you’ve borrowed: Your History page automatically lists the titles you borrow. You can also manually add titles to, or remove them from, your history. For example, you can add a print book you read, or remove an audiobook you didn’t finish.
  • Improvements to placing and retrieving holds: You can see approximate wait times on title details pages before you place a hold. After you’ve placed your first hold, the app will remember your email address, and you won’t be prompted for it again when you place holds in the future. Holds are automatically borrowed for you as soon as they’re available. 
  • Changes to the renewal process: Renewing now extends your lending period for a title. As long as there are no holds, you can select renew for a title on your loans page up to three days before it expires. If the title has holds, you’ll be able to select Request again instead to join the title’s wait list.
