How To Read Ebooks and Audiobooks for Free

Daily Herald:

One of the worst-kept secrets is that your local library often has way more to offer than a traditional book or two. E-books and audiobooks are as much a part of the catalog these days.

And Libby is an app from OverDrive — a company that works with libraries around the country to show off their e-books and audiobooks on offer.

Users will need a valid library card from a participating system to use Libby. But if you meet those criteria, then the app makes it a snap to check out materials or place holds on the titles you want. You can read or listen to them right in the app.

It can also send your library books to a Kindle.

You will need to join your local library to use it. But it’s free and a better app than Audible. I’m a huge fan of this app.
