MI's eMaterials Moving to Libby

MI Library's eAudiobook, eBook, and eMagazine collections are moving to Libby and Overdrive with some exciting perks for members! 

Members can now access more than 3,000 eMagazines alongside eBooks and eAudiobooks with one Libby app. Full-color and always available, our digital magazines have no wait lists, check out for 21 days, and are renewable. Users can enjoy Kindle books delivered through Overdrive on their Kindle device or the Kindle app. 

Here is a helpful video to get started with the Libby app

Wondering where our Axis360 books are going? 

Members may still use Axis360 for eBooks as well. Later this year, our Axis360 eBook titles will move to Overdrive. We will update you on the transition.
