A Sanilac District Library card is required to use Libby by OverDrive. SDL's library card policy.

SDL staff will set-up your Libby account when your library card is issued. 

If you are a current SDL card holder, a Libby by OverDrive account has already been created for you.

Get the Libby app

Kindle and Nooks are designed to be e-readers. Other devices may not have a program to read e-books. OverDrive created Libby to be a Library Reading App that allows you to read e-books on an iOS device (iPhone & iPad) or an Android device. Libby also allows you to download e-books for offline usage and listen to audiobooks. Libby will let you choose to read the book with the Libby App  or send the book to your Kindle, which is already an e-reading device.

Libby by OverDrive Partner Library Systems

SDL is a member of the White Pine Library Cooperative’s digital consortium, Fuel Your Mind. Five digital content groups from other library cooperatives have partnered together to provide reciprocal borrowing. If an item is not available in the Fuel Your Mind collection, SDL patrons may also search for and borrow items from the  digital collections of these partner library systems:  

  • Great Lakes Digital Libraries

  • Lakeland Digital Library

  • Midwest Collaborative for Library Services

  • Suburban Library Cooperative

  • White Pine Library Cooperative: Fuel Your Mind

Search other Content Groups via SDL's website portal: Fuel Your Mind

Click the Partner Libraries tab located in upper right corner of the page. Select the Content Group you’d like to search.  Borrowing and placing holds are the same processes.  Each Content Group has to be searched.
