Sort and Filter - Updates to Libby app


Looking for new ways to sort and filter loans, holds, tags, and timeline activities through Libby? Here is some information on the newest update to the app.


On the Shelf and Timeline, users can review and select their preferred sort and filter options from the new filter button.


Based on popular request, users can now filter their wish list and other tags by availability. If desired, users can pin this filter to see titles that are immediately available to borrow from any of their tags.


Additional updates include:

  • Sort and filter options are tailored for each Shelf screen. For example, users can sort their Loans screen by "due next" and sort their Holds screen by "expected next," among other options.

  • Users with multiple library cards can filter their Loans, Holds, or Timeline activity by library.

  • Users can optionally pin their preferred sort and filter options. Once a filter is pinned, Libby will automatically remember that filter the next time the user visits that screen. For example, a user could sort their Loans by “due next” and pin that option to ensure their Loans screen always displays books in order of due date. Note: Not all filters can be pinned.

  • From the Timeline, after tapping users will see a graph of their reading activity by year. They can further filter to see their reading activity for a specific year graphed by month. Note: Users can optionally turn off their timeline using these steps.
