Multi-Library Search in Libby
Libby has released an update to automatically show users with multiple library cards the quickest option to access the title they want to read. A primary goal of this update is to reduce overall wait times by presenting up front the shortest wait time for a title across all collections added to a user's Libby app. Click here to watch a brief overview video about this update.
Stop by the library to ask one of our librarians for assistance on how to get the most out of your Libby app experience.
