Libby Extras: Databases and Streaming Media

Entertain. Educate. Experience.

Engage your community with content that entertains, educates, and provides unique digital experiences. With resources including music instruction, cooking classes, science courses, streaming movies, test prep lessons, legal document templates, and more, there’s something for every library patron to enjoy.

Your users will discover and access these resources through the Libby app (available under “Extras”) along with the full collection of ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines you offer. Or you can utilize direct links, customized webpages for your library that allows you to feature each Libby Extra service individually. From that page, your patrons can seamlessly borrow the service with a library card. Visit OverDrive Marketplace to add these Databases & Streaming Media services to your collection.
