Celebrate Library Lovers’ Month ~ #Books #Reading #TuesdayBookBlog

Celebrate Library Lovers’ Month with the Most Anticipated Reads on the Libby App.
OverDrive librarians curated a special February collection of must-read titles to celebrate book lovers and lovers of libraries.

I was approached by Rachel Gunia, who works with Libby, the free library reading app, to see if I would share a librarian-curated book list. I have no experience of the app myself but it seems to work providing you have a library card and a library fairly close. There are many positive reviews and, of course, a few bad ones.

Started in Australia in 2006, Library Lovers’ Day (Feb. 14) quickly evolved into an international month-long celebration recognizing the contributions and services libraries and librarians provide local communities. Libby, the free library reading app created by OverDrive, is commemorating Library Lovers’ Month in 2022 with a must-read collection by librarians.

Featuring titles like Jane Pek’s The Verifiers and Barbara Chase-Riboud’s The Great Mrs. Elias, this collection of ebooks and digital audiobooks are available to borrow and read for free in the Libby app. Libby is available from 21,000 libraries worldwide, and brings users 24/7 free access to the digital titles their public library offers.

In addition to downloading ebooks and audiobooks for offline reading and listening, library lovers can listen to their librarian’s favorite audiobooks and have a seamless on-the-go listening experience with Libby through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The app is also compatible with Sonos speakers, and audiobooks can be streamed to Google Home and Amazon Echo devices, bringing the library to households everywhere.

{020C5519-3F5E-4891-BB3D-21C77031B5C0}Img400Readers can even indulge in librarian favorite The Paris Apartment and take a journey of discovery with Black Cake while creating notes and highlights or defining words through Libby’s state-of-the-art reading experience. Users can even adjust an ebook’s font size, layout and background lighting to their preference.

Digital content from local public libraries is accessible for free on Libby with a valid library card. To begin borrowing ebooks, audiobooks and more from the local public library, download the Libby app for free from the App Store or Google Play.

  1. I always assumed that the Libby App was a US thing as I’ve never heard of it in connection with UK libraries before. This is definitely something that I need to investigate. Not that I really need any more library books!!!! I’ve got three reservations to pick up as it is 😃
