You can request items be purchased for Libby, but you have to use the website rather than the app. To do this:
Download Libby, the Overdrive app, from your app store. It requires a library account, so if you don’t have one, please fill out the form to apply for a digital access card.
In the “Add Library” section, search for Athens Regional Library System. It will be listed underneath Georgia Download Destination. Tap to add it. Then just enter your library card number.
To access The New York Times, go to http://www.athenslibrary.org/online-library/magnews/new-york-times
Click "Access from Outside the Library," and log in to GALILEO.
The next screen is the redemption code from the NYT. Click on Redeem. You'll be taken to a page from the NYT, where you'll enter your login information or register for an account. The code is good for 24 hours.
