Kimberling Area Library

Libby, Overdrive’s app built for readers to discover and enjoy eBooks and audiobooks from our library, has recently been updated so that user can manage notifications they would like to receive about borrowed books and holds.

Users can choose which notifcations they’d like to receive from the Libby menu under Manage Notifications, including:

Other notes:

To enjoy notifications and other app improvements, be sure to install the latest update for Libby from your device’s app store.  

Early in 2020, Overdrive is introducing a feature called “Hold Redelivery”.  Hold redelivery will allow users to suspend a hold even after it’s made available to them, while maintaining their place on the wait list.  By enabling users to pass books they don’t have time to read on to the next person in line, hold redelivery will help connect more readers to the right book, at the right time.  Look for more information about this new feature soon.

If you need assistance, call the library at 417-739-2525 to make an appointment with our eBook specialist, Sharon Clarke.
