Downloading eBooks & Audiobooks
Introducing The Palace Project!
Palace is an e-reading app, currently available only on Android and iOS devices. Palace is not going to replace Libby, bur rather, complement the collection currently available on Libby. KHL’s current digital collection is available on Palace and can be accessed on both apps. The Palace app, does however, contain a larger e-book and audio book collection from the Vermont Department of Libraries, which is not available on Libby. Palace is currently not available on Kindle, PC, Linux, or other devices.
Palace is new and still in development, which means some features you find on other digital content apps, may not be available yet. It does mean, however, that you have a voice in the future development of the platform. If there is a feature you would like to change or add, please email email@example.com.
The digital content you find on Palace is KHL’s Libby collection, in addition to the State Library collection. Palace aims to combine services to that eventually, the library’s entire digital collections, including Kanopy and Flipster content, will be available in one place.
After downloading the app, select “Find Your Library, and choose Kellogg-Hubbard Library from the alphabetized selection. To sign in, select the settings icon in the lower-right hand corner of the screen, then enter your LIBRARY CARD NUMBER and LIBRARY PASSWORD, and select LOG IN. The password is the same password that you use to log in to the catalog. If you don't have your library card or password, call the circulation desk (802-223-3338) and ask for assistance.

Libby vs. GMLC vs. Overdrive. Libby is the name of the app you use to access the collection of digital materials we share as part of the Green Mountain Library Consortium (GMLC). Libby was created by a company called Overdrive.
If you're having difficulty, please ask library staff for assistance (802-223-3338), email email@example.com or watch the video below.
On May 1, 2023, the Overdrive app will be discontinued. Long-time Overdrive users can still access KHL’s collection on the Libby app, a newer reading app made by the same developers. Libby is available on both the App and Play Store for iOs and Android users.
If you have a Kindle Fire device, the Libby app is not available in the Amazon Appstore yet but can be downloaded following these steps.
Please contact the library if you would like assistance in navigating this switch and learning how to use Libby.
