Libby/Overdrive Reciprocal Lending

Starting September 1 2021, Henderson Libraries (HL) and Las Vegas-Clark County Library District (LVCCLD) will have a trial partnership for reciprocal lending with Overdrive/Libby. Patrons will be able to borrow electronic books through Overdrive from LVCCLD and vice versa. Patrons will not be able to place holds on the other library district’s materials, nor will they be able to borrow cost-per-circ items. (These are items that we pay a fee for each usage.)

Patrons will not need to set up an account for the other library district to use their materials. These are instructions for how to access the LVCCLD collections

Libby

Click on the main Libby menu.

Click on Add Library. In the new window search for Las Vegas and select the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District to access the LVCCLD collection.

Select I'm Visiting From Another Library and choose Henderson Libraries. Enter a Henderson Libraries card number and a PIN/Password. Then click Sign In.
