Libby is now available in 10 languages!

To help further serve the needs of our diverse reading community, Libby’s user interface now supports 9 additional languages. All of the helpful information and guides (not the ebooks and audiobooks themselves) can be updated to your native language to simplify your experience. Browse collections, search for specific titles, get help, and more in the following languages:

  • English
  • Spanish
  • French (Canada)
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Traditional Chinese
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Russian
  • Swedish

If your device is set to one of these languages, Libby will automatically display in that language.


To support this upgrade and enable future feature development, Libby’s minimum Android operating system requirement has changed from version 4.4+ (KitKat, released in 2013) to version 5.0+ (Lollipop, released in 2014). This change affects Android devices that cannot upgrade to Android version 5 or higher.  Users with these older devices will see a message with options to either update their device's operating system, switch to a supported device, or access Libby in the device’s web browser. The iOS minimum requirement for Apple devices (iPhones and iPads) remains unchanged at 9.0+.
