Partner Libraries in Libby

Did you know that you can get books from more than one library cooperative through Libby? The Partner Library Program allows Herrick District Library patrons to not only access materials through the Midwest Collaborative for Library Services, but also from the Lakeland, Suburban, and Great Lakes library cooperatives. This means that if the title you want is not available from your library or has a long hold list, you can check three other libraries to see if it available there instead.

To access the partner libraries in your Libby app, simply tap on the little Libby icon and tap "Add Library." Then search for the cooperative you would like to add. Tap "I'm Visiting From Another Library" to find your home library in the list and add your library card number. Now you can browse and check out items from that library in addition to HDL.

Here's a video showing you the steps:
