What is Libby?

The free Libby app is the easiest way to access ebooks and audiobooks from OverDrive. All you need to do is download the app and sign into our library using your NCCC credentials to begin browsing the digital collection.

Getting started is easy. Just follow these simple instructions:

1.    Install the Libby app from the app store on your Android or iOS device.

2.    In Libby, follow the prompts to find Niagara County Community College (under the Northern New York Library Network) and sign in with your NCCC credentials which is your 'Library card'.

3.    Browse or search the digital collection and borrow a title.

Note: When you open a checked out title, you will be asked to where you would like to read the title.  You can choose Libby to read right within the Libby app (recommended) or Kindle to read in the Kindle app or on a dedicated Kindle ereader.

Quick Tips

If a title is not available, you can place a hold. After you place a hold, view your spot in line by going to your Shelf, tapping Holds, then tapping Wait List.

You can view your place in line for a hold. After you place a hold, go to Shelf > Holds and tap the calendar icon. You'll see your approximate wait time, the number of copies in use, and the number of people waiting.

You can save time by saving your preferences. Tap Preferences at the top of your library's home screen, or at the top of any list. Adjust your filters and default sorting option. Tap Apply Preferences.

You can explore more book recommendations. Tap Explore at the top of your library's home screen to discover your next great read. Search by subject, popularity, what's available, and more.

You can add more than one library card. Tap the Libby icon in the top right corner, then tap Add a Library. You can search by name or zip code.

If preferred or if you are using a computer, you can access Libby directly from any browser at
