Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Did you know you could borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your local public library — for free?! Libby, by OverDrive, is a free app that connects you to your local public library virtually.

Other features of Libby include:

  • Browse your library’s digital catalog of books, from classics to New York Times best-sellers
  • Borrow and enjoy eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines
  • Download titles for offline reading, or stream them to save space
  • Listen to audiobooks via Apple CarPlay
