Install the Libby app from your device's app store.

Or, visit in your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Edge browser.


In Libby, follow the prompts to find your library: Missouri Southern State University and login with the first part of your email (before the @ symbol) and your Pin Password. 


Browse your library's collection and borrow a title.


Borrowed titles appear under Shelf > Loans and download to the app automatically when you're connected to Wi-Fi, so you can read them when you're offline.

From your Loans, you can:

  • Tap Read With... to choose where you'd like to read the book (Kindle or Libby), then finish sending to Kindle (U.S. libraries only) or start reading in Libby.
  • Tap Open Audiobook or Open Magazine to start reading or listening to that title.
  • Tap Manage Loan to see options like Renew and Return.

If you need more help with Libby, please visit Libby Help. Happy reading!

Checking Out Items

To check out a item, please simply click the 'Borrow' link in blue and the book will be placed in your bookshelf. The default checkout period is 14 days, but you can change this to 7 days in the setting menu under 'Lending periods'. 



Placing a Hold

If the book you want to checkout is already checked out, you can place a hold on it by selecting the 'Place a Hold' link. 

You will be prompted to sign in (if you haven't already) and asked for an email address, so that you can receive notification when the book is available for you to use. 


Returning Items

You never have to worry about returning your eBooks and audiobooks on time, because they will automatically expire at the end of the lending period.

Alternatively, you can return a book early by navigating to your bookshelf and clicking the 'Return' link below the book image at any time during the checkout period.
