Getting Started with Libby
Libby is a wonderful app that lets you easily navigate Overdrive and check out ebooks and eaudiobooks using your library card. With a few “taps,” you can sign in using your library card number and access the thousands of ebooks/eaudiobooks that are available from New Hampshire’s State Library catalog. So, how do you get started?
The first step depends on the device you use. Libby is completely free. If you use an iphone, you can download the Libby app from the app store. If you use an Android, use the Google Play Store. If you want to access Libby from your Windows PC, you use the Microsoft Store. Once you download it, get your library card at the ready and follow the instructions on the device. “Libby” will pop up and chat with you about how to get started.
Once you add your library card number, you will be able to put in your location to find your closest library. Select “New Hampshire State Library.” Then you will be able to select us out of the list of NH libraries that share ebooks. That’s when you’re ready to start borrowing!
E-magazines are back!
New Hampshire Downloadable Books has added 25 "simultaneous, unlimited checkout magazine titles" to their collection. You can either read this via the Libby App or on your PC using the Read Now function. For full instructions on how to check out and use e-magazines, please consult the NHDB's instruction handout.
To access the OverDrive catalog from our website, hover over the "Catalog" menu and then click "Ebooks, Eaudio, Emags" from the drop down menu.
Things to note:
*The format of these emagazines will not work with a black and white kindle.
*Checking out magazines does not count against your three checkout limit for other downloadable titles.
*Works best on the Libby App or on PC through the NH Overdrive's website.
Darktown by Thomas Mullen.
Grappling with race issues, Atlanta hires its first black officers. They are then faced with a crime where a black woman goes missing and was last seen in a car with a white man. The description compares the tone of the novel to Dennis Lehane. It is "a vivid, smart, intricately plotted crime saga that explores the issues of race, law enforcement, and the uneven scales of justice" .
The Meredith Public Library benefits from a wide collection of digital titles via Overdrive. All you need is a library card with us and you can plug in and take your reads on the go. Our ebook collection also has many titles that we do not have in our building.
So, whats new for ebooks and eaudio books this month?
