One of my favorite apps is Libby, a digital library. All you need to sign up is a library card.
For those of you with Kindles, it operates similarly, except a) the books are free and b) it’s on my phone which I already own and carry with me daily.
Having used Libby for over two years, here is my review:
-Dark mode for nighttime reading
-Highlighter, notes, and dictionary features
-14 day reading limit with the option to renew hold
-Selection is limited to your library’s availability
-Waitlist ranges from days to months
While the cons can be annoying, I like that it’s free. If the book is returned and I renew my hold, any notes and highlights are recorded so I never lose my place. I save time and money since I don’t have to physically go to the library. If a book isn’t available? Oh well.
I get extra satisfaction by putting my phone on airplane mode at night while reading. It allows me to socially disconnect and fully immerse into the book.
Do you use a library app or a Kindle?
