I want to set parental controls in OverDrive / Libby

OverDrive / Libby doesn't have parental controls, but you can limit your browsing and searching to content intended for specific audiences.

In the OverDrive website in your browser:

To set your content preferences, open OverDrive in a browser, not the Libby app.

  1. Go to the Library's OverDrive page at pima.overdrive.com
  2. Log in with your library card number and PIN
  3. Go to My Account, then Settings
  4. Scroll down to Content Preferences and select the types of content you want to see when browsing or searching the collection.

In the Libby app:

To set an audience preference for searching/browsing:

  1. Open the Libby app
  2. Tap Preferences at the top of any search or browse screen (not in your Shelf).
  3. Choose one or more Audience filters.
  4. Tap Apply Preferences.

You can also visit your library's kids section in Libby:

  1. Open the Libby app
  2. Tap Explore on your library's home screen in Libby
  3. Then select Guide: Kids

This takes you to the Library's OverDrive Kids collection. There is also a collection for teens.
