Image: Update to Android OS requirements for Libby and OverDrive apps and websites

OverDrive’s web certificate provider, Let's Encrypt, is discontinuing support for Android operating systems (OS) 7.1.0 and earlier. Let’s Encrypt certificates are used to secure connections on many websites and apps, including those from OverDrive.

With this update,beginning April 15, 2024, Android 7.1.1 will be the earliest supported Android OS for all OverDrive apps and websites, including Libby. Starting the week of March 25th, impacted Libby users will see a message to update their OS or switch to another supported device to continue using the app. For steps on how to use a setup code to easily copy your library cards, loans, holds, and tags to another device, please click HERE

We apologize for the inconvenience this will have on users with impacted devices. This change is necessary to uphold OverDrive’s standards of security and patron privacy and their commitment to delivering a quality experience to all libraries and their users.
