Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are OverDrive and Libby?

    OverDrive/Libby is a way to access thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, and digital magazines for FREE from your library!

    Libby by OverDrive is the app that provides that same access to eBooks, eAudiobooks, and digital magazines on the go on your Smartphone, tablet, or eReader.

    The OverDrive app will officially stop working in April 2023. Please download the Libby app and follow the instructions on Switching from OverDrive to Libby or ask a Reference Librarian for assistance.
  • How can I use OverDrive or Libby?

    You can access OverDrive in many different ways. OverDrive is available through an Internet browser on your computer or laptop and content can be downloaded to your Kindle Fire, Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle Oasis, or other eReaders.

    The Libby app by OverDrive is available on an iPad or Samsung Galaxy tablet, Smartphones including Apple or Android devices, and Kindle Fire devices. The Libby app is available in the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and the Amazon App Store.

  • How long can I borrow an item?

    With your Lynnfield library card, you have access to the entire NOBLE OverDrive/Libby collection. Additionally, you can borrow items from other Massachusetts Library consortiums through reciprocal lending including Boston Public Library and our neighbors in the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium.

    You can borrow NOBLE items for up to 21 days. Items borrowed through reciprocal lending from other Massachusetts library consortiums can be borrowed for up to 14 days.

    You can borrow up to 6 items at one time and place 10 items on hold at once. Digital magazine titles do not count against your borrow limit.
