An update from OverDrive regarding the OverDrive App:
Effective today, the legacy OverDrive app is no longer available to download from the Apple App Store, Google Play, or the Microsoft store*. Users who have the OverDrive app (mobile or desktop) installed will still be able to use it without disruption. All users can continue to access your library’s OverDrive website.
*Please note it may take several hours for this change to be reflected in all app stores.
Later this year, we’ll share more details on how OverDrive app users will be encouraged to switch to Libby and the plans and timing for the eventual retirement of the OverDrive app.
Recommended next steps:
- Review your library’s website and promotional materials to ensure you’re actively promoting only Libby and no longer referencing the OverDrive app. Reference this page for best practices and examples.
- Bookmark this page on the Resource Center for an overview of the app sunset plan, FAQs, Libby promotional materials, and more.
- Watch this on-demand webinar for practical tips to help your staff and users during this transition.
What’s next for Libby:
We’re continuously making updates to help your library serve and delight more users with Libby. The near-term roadmap includes more ways for you to communicate with users and promote library initiatives, a solution for user recommendations, and other features we know are important to your library—stay tuned!
