Despite the provincial library information management system (SLIMS) still being offline, Overstrand Municipality’s libraries are open and ready to assist our bookworms.
Until the SLIMS system is back online, members may borrow a limited number of books over a certain period of time. Library material can be renewed over the phone.
As an alternative, we encourage library members to download the LIBBY app onto their smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer and sign up to borrow eBooks and audiobooks at no charge.
To download the LIBBY ap, go to your phone’s app store, search for Overdrive’s Libby App (overdrive.com/apps/libby/) and follow the instructions to borrow the title you want.
To log into LIBBY you will be using your library credentials.
Simply use the full number on your library card as your username and your date of birth - dd.mm.yyyy (include full stops) - as your password. (Use the full number; some libraries have 13 digits and others 14 or 15).
Non-members who want to access the e-resources, must first join their local library and will be able to make use of the mobile service after five working days.
Please contact your nearest library for assistance with navigating the platform.
