We don’t know about you guys but we’ve been reading up a storm in the past few weeks. But that being said, it becomes a lot harder to get books with the closure of stores and libraries. And that’s why we’re super pumped about Libby.

Libby isn’t a person but rather an app that gives you access to thousands of e-books and audiobooks for free! And what’s even better is that they currently partner with 90% of North America’s libraries. So chances are, you’ll be able to use Libby with no problem.

All you need to gain access to Libby is a library card. And if you have multiple library cards from different North American cities, you can access multiple library databases. How cool is that?

But if you don’t have a library card, Libby may still be available to you. Some libraries allow for online card sign up and we’re assuming during this time more are making the switch to allow online sign-up.

With all this in mind, we think Libby is an excellent app to help you pass the time in a protective way. Think about all the amazing stories you can read or all the new skills you can learn. Books are a window on the possibilities of our world and beyond.
