Libby

Browse thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks curated and selected by our New Canaan Librarians! Now you can access 3,000 magazines in a huge range of subjects and languages.  Libby is an easy to use app that accesses the same content as Overdrive. The interface is great for those just getting started with digital libraries and works great with smart phones and iPads. Newer books may have longer wait lists, so place a hold on popular titles and you’ll be notified by email when it’s your turn to read.
