Navigate to this website for more information if you’d like:


From your app store, or wherever you download apps, search for Libby (an OverDrive product) and the icon will look like the one above.


Download the app onto your device. Open the app and it will ask if you already have a library card - click yes.


This next screen asks you to identify your library - if you choose the middle selection “I’ll search for a library”, you’ll be able to type in Columbus Junction Public Library.



You can also use the zip code or map to select CJPL.


You’ll see that as you start to type, “Bridges” comes up in red, select that library by clicking on it.


This is the next screen you’ll see - you use your library card at CJPL, so select that by clicking our library name.



Now you’ll see a space to enter your card number, the 4 digit code that’s on your library card. It’s the same number you’ve used to log in on the OverDrive app (if you’ve used that before) or any other database. If you need assistance in getting your library card number, please contact the library at 319-728-7972 or


Once you’ve entered your library card number and hit enter/clicked sign in, you’re officially into the Libby app! Everything from OverDrive will have migrated over and you’re ready to start looking for books, downloading from Kindle, or reading within the app!
