HOW TO USE LIBBY
1. If you’re accessing books via a phone or tablet, the best way to get them is through either the OverDrive or Libby app. (Libby is generally the most user-friendly of the two.) Find and download them from your app store.

4. Next, select the Hartland Public Library and type in your library card number (the barcode on your library card) and password. If you don’t know your password, you can ask a staff member and we’ll look it up for you. (If you’re accessing remotely, you can call us during business hours at 802-436-2473 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
