Libby eBooks & eAudiobooks

Read or listen anywhere with the Libby app!

  • Get started by downloading the Libby app.
  • Select Scotch Plains as your library, then login with your library barcode number and PIN.
  • You can then search, browse, borrow books or place holds. Once you’ve borrowed a title it will download and you can start reading or listening.
  • Watch an introductory video for further help

On your computer?

  • You can search for and borrow titles on the eLibraryNJ website–just click Sign In first. Once you’ve borrowed a book, it will be available to download in your app.
  • You can also remain on your computer to read and listen online.

Do you use a dedicated Kindle eReader? (such as the Paperwhite or Oasis)

  • You can send books from the eLibraryNJ to your Kindle eReader.
  • These instructions are slightly outdated as they refer to the Overdrive app, but start at step 2 and follow the remaining instructions.

Do you use a Kindle Fire tablet?

  • The Libby app is not available through the Amazon app store. There is a workaround that allows you to install it, if you wish. (Thanks to the Cheshire Public Library for these instructions.)
  • You can also use the free Kindle app which is installed on the Fire.
    • Borrow eBooks through the eLibraryNJ website, and where available choose the ‘Read with Kindle’ option.
    • You’ll be directed to Amazon.com. Log in to your account.
    • Make sure that the Deliver To information is set to your preferred device.
    • Click Get Library Book and the title will be available in the Kindle app.
    • This is only an option for eBooks, not eAudiobooks.
