Yes! Overdrive offers an alternate app for your phone or tablet called Libby. The Libby app allows you to enter two or more card numbers, switch between accounts, and access all of the associated titles from all the accounts at once.

  1. Download the Libby by Overdrive app here or directly from your app store. This link also has instructions and a video for using Libby.
  2. Find and select your library (choosing any branch of Austin Public Library will do).
  3. Add your card number and library password.
  4. To add additional accounts, tap Library Cards from the catalog view or from the menu the menu icon.

Once one or more library cards have been entered, you can tap the card to see information about the account, give it a name, or activate it. The activated card is the one new checkouts will appear on, but you'll be able to see and access titles from all of the cards you've entered.

The below screen shot from an iPhone shows Itchy's card is activated, and Scratchy's is inactive, but available.
