Digital media consumers were excited to have a one stop library “shop” to access audiobooks, ebooks, and other digital content provided by their public library. Simply type in your library card number and enroll through your library, and you have seemingly endless content at your fingertips. 

It has been touted as the best way for accessing ebooks, audiobooks, and other online media from the public library. Read an ebook and bookmark your favorite pages for later.

But users are finding increasingly more ways to access digital content and convert physical content into digital content for online and on the go.

If you’re tired of waiting, it may be time to cancel Libby and turn to a different way of consuming content. 

What is Libby?

Libby is the redesigned, fresh face of overdrive, the “orginal” one stop shop for econtent. Its bright and cheery interface will completely replace the more industrial, outdated overdrive app on android, iphone, apple app store, and overdrive websites by the end of 2022.

  • Apple App Store 

  • Google Play 

  • OverDrive, the developers of Libby

Libby Alternative: Speechify

Content consumers who are tired of waiting for their favorite books, audiobooks, ebooks, and more may want to consider Speechify. It’s a TTS and OCR app that will translate any text into Speech.

App users can turn their favorite novel into an audiobook by taking a picture of each page and allowing Speechify’s natural sounding, human-like voices to read it back to them in any speed they prefer. 

Speechify can also read web pages, email, ebooks, and more using text-to-speech technology. 

How Speechify is different from Libby

Speechify and Libby are different because Speechify is virtually limitless. Libby’s available content is determined by factors like Library funds, popularity, how many people are on the wait list, and how many copies are available.

With Speechify, if you have permission to download content and save it as a PDF document, you can create an audiobook to listen on the go. You can turn blog posts into podcasts or complete homework assignments in half the time by increasing your listening speed.
