Libby users can choose which push notifications they’d like to receive from the Libby menu under Manage Notifications, including:
  • When a hold becomes available
  • When a loan is about to expire
  • When a loan has expired
  • And more! 


  • Notifications are device-specific, so you can set your notification preferences for each device you use Libby on.
  • After swiping a push notification, you'll be taken to your Reading Journey for that title, which displays any previous interactions and activity you had with that book (notes, highlights, time read, etc.).
  • If your device doesn’t support push notifications (or where they’re disabled), you can opt to receive notifications via email or in the Libby menu.
  • Along with a new Manage Notifications section, we’ve refreshed and simplified the Libby menu.
  • In early 2020, hold redelivery will replace auto-checkout, and Libby's notifications will be a helpful tool for guiding you through the new experience.
To enjoy notifications and other app improvements, be sure to install the latest update for Libby from your device’s app store.
