On the Road

Hop aboard the Digital Bookmobile in downtown Cleveland to learn all about the Libby app


Aug 02, 2023

Like many things, OverDrive’s Digital Bookmobile had to take a pause beginning in March 2020 due to COVID. Before then, this 53-foot toterhome truck traveled the country as a community outreach vehicle for public libraries and schools to promote their digital collections.

After 3 years off the road, the Digital Bookmobile will once again be opening its doors and welcoming readers of all ages in the Cleveland area to climb aboard and learn about the Libby app offering free ebooks, audiobooks and more from the library.

Whether you want to use the Libby app but aren’t sure how to get started, or you’ve borrowed books through Libby for years and are looking for tips on how to maximize your digital reading experience, hop aboard the air-conditioned, ADA-accessible Digital Bookmobile and chat with our Libby experts.

Learn how to manage multiple library cards, utilize tagged lists, express interest in titles that aren’t in your library’s collection yet and more!
