Face coverings must be worn by all patrons, except children under the age of 2, when in library buildings. This requirement is in accordance with the most recent Health Order from the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services.

Temporary Cards No Longer Accepted For OverDrive and Libby


Patrons who registered online and use a LBPL card number that starts with a 1 for their OverDrive/Libby account, will not be able to access to OverDrive and Libby using that card number after January 31, 2022.

Starting February 1, 2022, patrons will need a LBPL card number that begins 23090 to use OverDrive or Libby. To transition to a 23090 card is easy! Just go to any LBPL location with your Driver's License or State I.D. Card and proof of your current address and complete your library registration.

Completing your registration takes just a few minutes and offers a world of information and entertainment. Once you have your new card number, you will be able to log into OverDrive and Libby, just like you used to. 

If your card already starts with 23090, you don't need to do anything. Your access to OverDrive and Libby will not change.
