Opt In to Push Notifications from Libby

Push notifications are now live in Libby, providing a new way to connect with readers. You can choose which notifications you’d like to receive from the Libby menu under Manage Notifications. You may be prompted to update your app to turn on notifications for:

  • When a hold is ready
  • When a hold is about to expire
  • When a hold has expired
  • When a loan is about expired
  • When a loan has expired

Notifications are device-specific, so you can set different notification preferences for all your devices with Libby. If your device doesn't support push notifications you can opt in to receive notifications via email or in the Libby menu.

After swiping a push notification, you'll be taken to your Reading Journey for that title. This displays any previous interactions and activity you had with that book including:

  • Notes
  • Highlights
  • Time read

Visit Libby Help for more information about notifications and other Libby features.
