The Libby app will let you check out books, place holds, and keep track of your bookmarks across multiple devices.  It’s also easy to change the font size, and pick your background lighting – light, dark, or sepia.  Traveling or trying to save data? You can  also download ebooks and audiobooks for offline access.

For audio books, you can increase the playback speed up to 3x, and you also may set a sleep timer – choose from the end of the chapter, or 5, 10, 30 minutes or more.
