Attention OverDrive and Libby users! Middlebury Public Library will be joining the Statewide OverDrive Consortium called Indiana Digital Library on March 1, 2022. What this means for patrons is having access to a much larger collection of digital titles to choose from. The Indiana Digital Library will provide access to e-books, e-audios, and digital magazines from over 190 Indiana libraries!
What do current OverDrive/Libby users need to do?
BEFORE MARCH 1: If you don’t want to lose your current reading history (shows what you’ve checked out in the past), use the instructions below to download and save:
Libby – exporting reading history
Overdrive-exporting reading history
After Indiana Digital Library goes live, you can log in to your app again, using the same information you use now. You should then be good to go! Your current borrows, holds, wishlist items, and star ratings should transfer over to the new consortium.
If you currently use the OverDrive app, you might consider making the switch to the Libby app. The OverDrive app is no longer supported, and the Libby app is OverDrive’s updated version of the original app. The new consortium will also have a team of librarians who will be actively monitoring holds and purchasing additional copies for books that have long wait lists. This means you shouldn’t have to wait as long to get the books you want to read.
