Audiobooks for schools

Access hundreds of downloadable audiobooks for children and teens through Libby by OverDrive. They are available 24/7 from school or home and can be used on computers, tablets and smart phones. Many audiobooks are unlimited access so a whole class could borrow the same title at a time. 

Audiobooks are a fantastic resource for using with reticent readers or those with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. 

Audiobooks can be accessed through the Libby app on tablets or phones or on computers through the Libby website.

• Access is via library membership – contact to join the library. If you are a library member, but get an error message when you logon to Libby, you need to have your membership upgraded for ebook/audiobook use. Email your Edinburgh home or work address and your library card number to and we'll upgrade you within one working day.

• Contact to ask how to get your class or year group registered for the library so your pupils can start using audiobooks.

• Read the appropriate help pages to guide you through setting up Libby and using it in school or at home.
