Alaska Digital Library transparent

Access more than 3200 magazines in the Alaska Digital Library with a great reading interface in the Libby app!

The OverDrive app is the classic original app from the OverDrive company.  It was the groundbreaking app for borrowing eMaterials from libraries and schools and will be retired in February 2022!

Libby is the one tap reading app created by OverDrive for a user-friendly experience with a beautiful interface for readers and listeners of all ages. 

Most people prefer the Libby app.  If you are using the OverDrive app, you should switch to Libby now!  Libby allows seamless access to the Alaska Digital Library (ADL)collection--the same collection you have with the OverDrive App.
