Login to Libby using your library card and get access to even more entertainment and educational resources. You’ll find these resources under the “Extras” section of Libby. Through Libby you can access exclusive services like AristWorks, Stingray Classica, Craftsy, Craftsy Español, iNDIEFLIX, Qello Concerts by Stingray, and The Great Courses!
What’s even better, extras don’t count against the borrowing limit in Libby!
To get started with an Extra, tap the service you want, then tap Get. This will take you out of Libby to get access to the service. Your library card gives you free access, but some providers may require you to create an account before you can use their service.
Note: You may see prompts for discounts and other promotions while accessing providers’ services. These can be safely ignored. Those are intended for users who pay out of their own pockets for those services.
For all extra resources except Kanopy, you borrow access to the service for a set amount of time. Often 7 day passes but some are longer. Borrowed services appear on your “shelf” so you can easily get back to them during your access period. Access periods vary by provider, but you can use the service as much as you’d like during your access period.
For Kanopy, you don’t borrow access to the service. Instead, tapping “Get“ takes you directly to the Kanopy app (once it’s installed), where you can borrow as many titles per month as your library allows. Since you’re not borrowing the service, Kanopy doesn’t appear on your “Shelf,” and you can access your account any time directly in the Kanopy app.
Enjoying your videos from your tablet, phone, or computer couldn’t be easier while on your home network. Follow the instructions below on how to set that up and use it on your particular device.
Libby’s extras are only for patrons of the Laurel County Public Library and it’s hidden from the rest of the users in the Kentucky Libraries Unbound consortium.
Just login with your library card and you should be able to view and access all the extras.
You first need a library card and a Libby account. Once you have those, visit the “Extras” section in Libby to get access.
Note: If you’re using the Libby app on your phone or tablet, you’ll need to stay within Libby’s in app browser to continue to access to with that service.
Unfortunately you can’t. That’s designed for users that pay for the service out-of-pocket.
With Libby, each time you get a pass, the account that gets automatically created is only temporary and expires along with your pass.
