The OverDrive collection has thousands of audiobooks available for our customers.

Borrow up to 15 items. Audiobooks automatically expire at the end of the lending period – no returns necessary.

How does it work?

If you’re on iOSAndroid, or Windows 10 devices, download the Libby app.

If you’re on a Kindle Fire, we suggest downloading the original OverDrive app.

Once the app is installed, find our library, LA County Library (Los Angeles), then browse our collection, find an audiobook, and borrow it using your library card number.
