As 2022 approaches, changes are on the horizon for the OverDrive Reading Apps that connect you to eBooks, Audiobooks and eMagazines. The OverDrive App will be removed in December 2022 and OverDrive will begin to provide support and updates only to the Libby App. The Libby App is OverDrive's most updated app for connecting seamlessly to your favorite eMaterials with advanced syncing, tags and searching capabilities. The OverDrive App will be removed from all App Stores (Google, Microsoft and Apple) on February 1, 2022. From February 2022 to December 2022, the OverDrive App will continue to be functional but OverDrive will be encouraging users to transfer their content over to Libby. We encourage all current users of the OverDrive app to be ready for this migration to the Libby App by December 2022.
