Digital Audiobooks on the Go

Going on a road trip this summer? Enjoy free digital audiobooks as a family with Libby by OverDrive, available to all Minuteman library card holders!

Libby, the newest app by OverDrive, is now compatible with Apple CarPlay. This feature allows users to select titles from their Libby app shelf and manage audiobook controls -- including skipping back or ahead, playback speed, and pausing -- from the vehicle's dashboard display. Users can also listen to borrowed audiobooks through the vehicle's sound system.

CarPlay is supported by every major automobile manufacturer and is compatible on iPhone 5 or newer running iOS 7.1 or newer.

For Android users, Libby is also compatible with Android Auto.
