OverDrive considers Libby the primary and recommended app for OverDrive library users, and has decided it is time to wind down support for the classic OverDrive app. As a result, the classic OverDrive app was removed from the Apple and Google app stores on February 23, 2022. Anyone currently using the classic OverDrive app will be able to continue using it until the end of 2022. At that time, the Libby app will be the only app available for accessing our OverDrive collection. E-books can be delivered to Kindle e-readers via the Libby app, and the OverDrive website will not go away.
The classic OverDrive app will remain available in the Kindle Fire app store until the end of 2022, since the Libby app is not available in the Kindle Fire app store. The Libby app must be directly downloaded onto Kindle Fires instead of installed from the app store. Learn how to download the Libby app directly to your Kindle Fire.
