#Looking for a Mobile Experience?

Download the OverDrive's newest app, Libby! OverDrive will retire it's original OverDrive app in 2022. If you still have it, you can continue to use it through the end of the year. However, it's been removed from most app stores. For more information, visit our blog.

#Finding Kids and Teens Content

Kids and teens need a safe environment to browse the library. Just as the children’s section of the physical branch is creatively sectioned off, the library's OverDrive-powered website has two "eReading Rooms" with dedicated collections just for kids and teens content. When visiting the site, you will see the "Kids" and "Teens" listed as options in your top navigation bar. Parents can feel comfortable knowing their children are browsing and borrowing books that are age, grade and reading-level appropriate.

From the Libby app, young readers can set their Preferences to only see Juvenile or Young Adult content. You can also visit the "Explore" tab and navigate to the Kids or Teens Guides to browse themed booklists and collections curated by librarians here at Jacksonville Public Library.
