Hello! Recently, OverDrive has moved to begin the transition to Libby from the existing OverDrive app. This transition will take quite some time, and will be done in phases. Phase 1 will encourage brand new users to download Libby instead of the OverDrive app. While OverDrive users in other states will see this change in June, the WPLC has opted to push this back to August in order to give us time to prepare to properly support the new app. Phase 2, which will happen later in the fall, will begin to encourage existing users to switch to Libby. It is unknown at this time if or when support for the existing app will end.
If you are not using Libby, we encourage you or your library's OverDrive support providers to become acquainted with it. Even though the app won't be pushed to new users until later this year, it is already available for public download and there will likely be support requests for it soon. You can download Libby from the App Store or Google Play.
OverDrive is providing three upcoming webinars on Libby next week and you can find information about those Staff Training as well as general information here: https://resources.overdrive.com/meet-libby/.
Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions and feel free to share your feedback about Libby as you use it with us so we can help guide its development. We will continue to share updates - additional training and hard dates for the transition - as they become available.
