Getting Started & FAQs

If you have trouble getting Libby to work properly on your iPhone or Android, try these steps:

  1. Open the Libby app and tap on the Libby icon in the middle of the bottom of the screen.
  2. Tap on “Get Some Help” in the “Help and Support” section in the right hand navigation menu
  3. Scroll to the bottom and select “Reset Everything” (which sounds scary but you get it all back when you log in again–and no, you won’t lose your holds).
  4. Log in again with your library card information.
  5. Tap “add library”
  6. Search for Library of Virginia
  7. When prompted, enter the email associated with your local library card (this could be what is tripping some people up)
  8. That should do it.

Other troubleshooting areas:

  1. Make sure your operating system is up to date.
  2. If all else fails, sign out, delete the app; reinstall the app and sign into your account again.

If you still need assistance in accessing or using these materials, please call the library at (804) 492-5807 during business hours.
