Kindle Fire users can sideload Libby onto their device manually with our APK (Android Package file), since Amazon has not yet accepted our submission of the Libby app to the Amazon Appstore. Once the APK is installed, the Libby app will appear and function like any other app on your Fire tablet.
Note: The Libby APK is supported on Fire tablets with Fire OS 5+. Your downloading steps may vary slightly depending on your device’s generation and operating system version.
On your Fire tablet, open the Silk Browser and visit the download link for the Libby APK.
You may get warnings saying that the Silk browser needs more access on your device or that this kind of file should be avoided. We test our file to make sure it’s safe, so you can safely dismiss these messages for our Libby APK.
Tap OK, Allow, or Continue to proceed. (The wording of the warnings may vary.)
Once the file downloads, tap Open.
(If you’re unable to open the file from this prompt, locate the file in your downloads folder and tap to open.)
If you get a message saying your device is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source, tap Settings and toggle “Allow from this source” on.
Note: We recommend turning this setting off after installing the Libby app. This will prevent you from accidentally downloading unsafe files in the future.
Tap the back button in the top-left corner, then tap Install.
Once the app is finished installing, tap Open to start using Libby!
