The e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines of OverDrive make up Wisconsin’s Digital Library. Wisconsin’s Digital Library works with OverDrive to manage digital library collections for public libraries throughout Wisconsin through the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium. It is typically accessed via a desktop computer, however, if you want to enjoy the content on a smartphone or tablet, there is also the Libby app. The classic OverDrive app has been discontinued. If you currently use the legacy OverDrive app and need assistance, visit https://help.overdrive.com.
The titles you find on Wisconsin’s Digital Library are the exact same offerings as those found in the Libby app. The difference is some prefer to use the Wisconsin’s Digital Library page on a computer web browser and enjoy titles directly or via download.
