Library eBook app expands language features for readers

Did you know your local library has a way to access digital books with different language options as a reading setting?


Within the Libby app, there is a setting to ensure reading comfort as they focus on finding and enjoying their next great read. Libby now allows users to browse, search, and enjoy the app in nine additional languages: German, French, Russian, Italian, Japanese, Swedish, Spanish, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.

Libby will recognize the readers’ device language setting and automatically display the app in that language if included in the list above. Users will be able to toggle Libby’s display by updating the language setting on their device.

Your local library has thousands of eBooks and e-audiobooks available that you can borrow for free using your mobile device through the Lycoming County Library System.


A link to get the free Libby app is available at .

Pennsylvania residents also are eligible for a free digital library card through the Free Library of Philadelphia to access their Libby collection. For more information, visit and click “get a library card” and select the “online” option to get a card.


If you have questions about using Libby, contact Sue Mayshock, the audiovisual specialist at the James V. Brown Library, by calling 570-326-0536. One-on-one appointments to work with your device are available.
