OverDrive transition options for Kindle Fire devices: Amazon has not yet accepted our submission of the Libby app to the Amazon Appstore so the OverDrive app will remain available for Kindle Fire users to download and access until further notice.

Users with Kindle Fire devices can also sideload Libby manually following these steps.
