Free eBooks & Audiobooks with OverDrive and the Libby App

Free eBooks and Audiobooks Using OverDrive & the Libby App

Read Libby

Browse audiobooks, ebooks, videos, and magazines in the OverDrive collection, borrow titles with your library card, and enjoy them on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader.  

Read and listen on your mobile device or web browser

Borrowed titles can be enjoyed immediately in your web browser or can be downloaded to the Libby or Sora app (student reading app) for mobile devices.  Digital titles can also be enjoyed on tablets and eReader devices such as the iPad® and newer Kindle Fire.

No late fees!

No matter how you plan to enjoy, titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!  

Books purchased by the Middleborough Library go to Middleborough card users first--so even if you have to place a hold, you'll be pushed to the top of the list.

Widen your search to get what you want

You can also search other Massachusetts network libraries and borrow their titles by adding a "partner library."   

On the OverDrive website: click on the "Partner Libraries" drop-down menu at the top-right of the screen, select another library system, and sign in using your home library (usually SAILS Library Patron), and your library card number and PIN number.

Using Libby:

  1. Tap the Libby Menu (three horizontal lines at the bottom center of screen)
  2. Scroll down and tap "Add Library," 
  3. Search for one of the seven other partner libraries (Boston Public, CLAMS, CW Mars, Merrimack Valley, Minuteman, NOBLE, Old Colony) and tap on the name to open a Sign In screen
  4. Tap "Sign In With My Card" and under "Partner Libraries," choose your home library from the list (usually it's SAILS Library Patrons) and sign in with your library card number and PIN.  
  5. Hit "Next" and add the card
  6. Redo the steps to add all seven networks.  You can then borrow titles from any of the networks you've added.

Free with your library card

This service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your library card. 

To log in to the OverDrive site and to the app, use your library card number and PIN number (last four digits of your phone number).
