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.

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.
