4 Reasons to Try Audiobooks on Libby

View Listening Progress

Tap the Time Left label (above the timeline) to cycle through different time displays: total time elapsed in the audiobook, time left in the current chapter, and total progress as a percentage.

Change Playback Speed

Readers read at different paces, and the same is true for audiobooks. One of the most beloved features in Libby is that the audio playback speed ranges from 0.6x-3x.

Return Titles Easily

Titles are automatically returned to the library so you don’t have to worry about late fees. But if you finish early, you can return the audiobook before its due date so it's available for the next library patron. 

Set a Timer

No one likes to lose their place while reading! Whether you are listening until you fall asleep or reading at lunchtime, this feature will help you manage your listening time. Tapping the moon icon at the top right of the audiobook player allows you to set or stop the sleep timer. This will give you an option to select a sleep timer between 5-120 minutes or to stop at the end of the chapter. Libby also remembers sleep timer choices. That way, you can just tap the moon icon to set the same timer again.
