Introduction to Libby, by Overdrive

The free Libby App is the easiest way to get started with eBooks and eAudiobooks from the NWTC Library. All you need is to download the app and sign into our library using your NWTC ID number and password. 

In addition to fiction, there are eBooks and eAudiobooks on Business & Finance, Careers, Computer Technology, History, Math, Nursing, Psychology, and Self-Improvement.

You can browse or search for a title, immediately see if it's available and then download it to your eReader or mobile device with just a couple of clicks. Borrow up to 10 books at a time!
