A true companion

I had read so many good things about Libby and I regret starting so late coz Libby has become my favorite companion. I love reading and missed reading for years.
EBooks and Audiobooks lending, reading, listening and finding help and happiness is a the most fantastic service I have ever got!! Plus the automatic goals to read that 21 days and auto returns is a life saver for me who struggles with Will Power to accomplish the timelines. Thanks a ton Libby guys for making this life changing App. Really appreciate your work.

A user friendly, easy to navigate app!

I prefer accessing books through this app than the library’s website. It’s that easy to use!
