Each service below is available as a relatively easy-to-use App, except for OverDrive. (Libby is the OverDrive app.) Each resource offers good in-service help for new users, but please don't hesitate to reach out to library staff for assistance.







  • WANT MORE? Other Library Networks' OverDrive Collections

    Use OverDrive through MVLC to access content from all other Massachusetts Library Networks' OverDrive Collections through reciprocal borrowing. How?

    • From MVLC's OverDrive home page, choose another network from the Partner Libraries link at the top of the page. Once on the other network’s site, sign in as an MVLC Library Patron using the barcode (no spaces) on your library card.
    • Libby App: Open the app and follow the instructions below* to add the other network(s) to the app. Then you can begin searching for items within those networks. Once added, the app will remember these networks and you will not need to add them again.

    *Tap on the Libby icon at the top right of any page to access the Add A Library option. Search for and select the library network you wish to add.

    On the network’s main page, scroll down to the section that says, “Let’s add a library card for [network name].” Tap on the I’m Visiting from Another Library link and select MVLC Library Patrons from the list of networks.
