Changes coming to the OverDrive app...

In early 2023, the OverDrive app will be discontinued. We encourage you to make the switch to Libby, a newer reading app. Libby is made by the same people as OverDrive, with the same goal of connecting you to your library and to your favorite books, audiobooks, and magazines.

  • Why is OverDrive winding down the OverDrive app?

    The company believes that Libby is the best reading experience for all users. With valuable partner and user feedback, they're constantly enhancing the app and adding new features to engage readers.

    They also want to make it easier to promote our digital library to our users. Having one app will simplify how we train users, answer questions, and stay up to date with changes.

  • How does removing the OverDrive app from app stores affect existing app users?
    During the first phase, existing OverDrive app users will be able to continue browsing, borrowing, and enjoying titles from your library in the app.

  • Will all OverDrive app users be required to switch to Libby?
    Yes, eventually. It’s the goal to have most OverDrive app users migrated to Libby by the end of 2022. We’ll keep you updated about plans and timing for officially retiring the OverDrive app and provide plenty of notice to ensure a smooth transition.

For more information on using Libby, check out this Help page or contact the Library for further assistance.

How to Find Your Perfect Book

Book Reviews Online

Booklist is a book-review magazine that has been published by the American Library Association for more than 100 years and is widely viewed as offering the most reliable reviews to help libraries decide what to buy and to help library patrons and students decide what to read, view, or listen to. It comprises two print magazines, an extensive website and database, e-newsletters, webinars, and other resources that support librarians in collection development and readers' advisory.

Publishers Weekly

Publishers Weekly, familiarly known in the book world as PW and "the bible of the book business," is a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business. It is targeted at publishers, booksellers, librarians, literary agents, authors, and the media. It offers feature articles and news on all aspects of the book business, bestsellers lists in a number of categories, and industry statistics, but its best-known service is pre-publication book reviews, publishing some 9,000 per year.

BOOK MARKS FROM LITERARY HUB

Every day, the Book Marks staff scours the most important and active outlets of literary journalism in the US—from established national broadsheets to regional weeklies and alternative litblogs—and logs their book reviews. When a book is reviewed by at least three outlets, each of those reviews is assigned an individual rating (Rave, Positive, Mixed, or Pan). These ratings are then averaged into a result and the book becomes part of our Book Marks database. Each book’s cumulative rating functions as both a general critical assessment and, more significantly, as an introduction to the range of voices and opinions that make up the world of American literary criticism. These opinions are accompanied by pull quotes representative of the overall stance of each individual review, and readers can click through to the full review at its source.
