Welcome to the

Archer Public Library

Libby, by OverDrive

Borrow ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines to read on your phone or tablet using the Libby app by OverDrive. You can even send and read your borrowed ebooks to your Kindle ereader (U.S. only)! It’s free and easy to get started for new users and a streamlined experience for current OverDrive app users. Learn more.

You may optionally want to include information here about library card requirements (is a PIN needed? If so, how can they set it?), how to contact you if they need help with their library card or PIN, how many books can be checked out at a time, or your lending period options for digital titles. Some libraries also like to add that all items are automatically returned at the end of the lending period.

If you are reading on an older device or a Fire tablet, want to view our selection of streaming videos, or require the use of a screen reader, you can enjoy our digital collection using the classic OverDrive app. If using a computer, you may also choose to discover titles using our library catalog https://archercity.booksys.net/opac/acpl/ or our digital collection website https://indietexas.overdrive.com/.
