Safety starts with understanding how developers collect and share your data. Data privacy and security practices may vary based on your use, region, and age. The developer provided this information and may update it over time.
Love it... Easy setup and friendly user interface. I love that I can choose the font I prefer and the size of my text, and having the choice between a light or dark theme. I have vision problems so its really helpful for me to be able to adjust these settings so it's easier for me to read. I can't read conventional books so having this app is critical, especially since I read every spare moment I have. I just wish it was easier to create and edits my lists.

Wow! I've tried so many reader apps I've lost track, so I didn't expect much from Libby. However, even with my skeptical attitude, I was instantly impressed. It was easy to connect all my library cards to my Libby account, so I've got access to virtually every publication in the entire Front Range. Easy to use, always takes you back to where you left off, even across platforms. No more late fees or frantic trips to return books on time. I deleted my Kindle Reader app because I don't use it.

Junk compared to basic Overdrive, can't believe they are planning to abandon a reliable platform. Ugly, byzantine, clunky interface. And the player will not persist beyond a minute when you pause it- you have to dig the app up again, then choose the book, then play it. Every. Single. Time. I have to pause a lot sometimes, SO WHY CAN'T THE PLAYER JUST HANG OUT FOR A FEW MINUTES??? Seriously one of those "if it ain't broke" kind of things. Good job "innovating" for the sake of innovation 👏👏👏
