Signing up for LIBBY
Getting Libby on your device is quick and easy!
After downloading the app you will need to add your library card. For this you will need the same information you use to get onto your account through our online catalog (your library number and pin). If you need help locating this information contact us at the library!
Our friends at Deerfield Public Library have made this process a little easier with this quick video!
What can I get on LIBBY?
Libby has added tons of new content and materials over the last couple years. Now, not only can you check out eBooks and eAudio books, but also digital magazines and online classes!!
Libby has partnered with Artist Works and Universal Class to offer fun and informative art, music, writing, and more classes from the same place you get your eBooks and digital magazines! Use the links below to learn more about Artist Works and Universal class, but make sure you sign into Libby to get your FREE classes!
Of course you’ll also have access to thousands of fiction and nonfiction titles! One of our favorite genres on the app is the COOKBOOKS! A great way to preview the newest ones before you buy!
