LPCPL is excited to join the Indiana Digital Library! This new statewide ebook consortium launches Tuesday, March 1st and will expand the LPCPL digital collection on Libby and OverDrive! Customers will gain access to a collection of ebooks and eaudiobooks from almost 200 libraries across the state of Indiana! The State Library is paying fees for the group, which means 100% of local library funds will be used to purchase digital materials.

What does this mean for current Libby and OverDrive users?

If you already have an account, you will be asked to log in again on Tuesday.

After logging in, your account will work the same as it always has, but with more titles to choose from! Materials you have currently checked out or on hold will still be there when you log back in. Your reading history and tags will not transfer over, but you can export this information in a few simple steps!

Follow these links to find out how to export and share tags with Libbyexport and share your timeline with Libby, and export your downloaded titles with OverDrive.

As a reminder, the OverDrive app is no longer available in the app store and will be retired later this year. We recommend that OverDrive users download the Libby app and get their account started for the smoothest transition.

Need help or have additional questions? Contact us by phone at 219-362-6156 or email at help@laportelibrary.org.

You can learn more about the Indiana Digital Library on their website.
