The only negative that I've encountered is that some things can't be returned early. The first audiobook I borrowed isn't returnable. I streamed this title (before figuring out how to download them). The second title I downloaded and was able to return it when finished.

I was also unable to return a book through the app.

Question Which to choose

I like my Overdrive. Not as much as Moon Reader+, but I like it well enough. It's it worth switching?

Don't care about audio books, I'm hearing impaired.

I have both apps: Overdrive for borrowing and reading library books, and for obtaining SYNC YA audiobooks (which I then move into Media Monkey). I use Libby merely to see, at a glance, what books I have borrowed or placed on hold across the multiple public library systems I patronize. Forced to choose between the apps, I'd keep Overdrive and uninstall Libby.

Is there an easy way to see what library you have holds on? I have the same book on hold at two libraries.

Yes, Libby shows all that. Once you add all the libraries you have you can see holds in one place, loans in one place, search for books, etc. I have a book on 2 libraries right now on hold and it shows both in my hold list. I have access to 3 libraries so its really handy. I often put a book on hold at more than one, get it from whichever first and then take it off the other.

I only read on my kindles so I don't use the app to read, but its really handy to keep an eye on all the libraries in one app and its user friendly. I don't have to switch libraries to see the holds and loans, only if I want to look for books to borrow.

It shows both in your hold list, but can you see which library each one is for? I know if one becomes available for me, I can just cancel the hold on the other. If you have reached your hold limit on one library it would be nice if you could see right away which library so you could cancel the hold for that library.

I was trying to see how many I have on hold at each library and what the hold limits are, but couldn't find it. Do you know if you can do that with Libby?

You have to click on the book cover in the holds area, then you get the info on what library, you can cancel or edit the hold there, see where you are in the wait list and it also shows a borrowing history for the title. So for the book I have on hold at 2 libraries, it shows both of them listed as linked cards and that I have a hold on it and when I placed it.

I can't see anywhere about hold limits from that page. I haven't dug any deeper to see if that shows anywhere as I know my hold limits. Mine are all the same.

Thanks. I knew you could do that, I was looking for a lazy way to see it without having to tap on anything.

I just found the hold limit. If you choose Library Cards from the menu and tap the card it will show you how many loans you have out of your allowed limit, and how many holds you have out of your allowed limit.
