Libby Update

All Libby users will soon need PINs to log into the MVLC OverDrive website and Libby app. Implementing this authentication best practice will improve system security and better protect patron privacy.

Starting on January 4, 2023, patrons will be prompted to enter their library account PIN along with a library card number when signing into or the Libby app. If you have questions, please contact us. We would love to help you!
