From the developers at OverDrive:
Why is this happening now?
We launched the Libby app in 2017, with the goal of creating a simple and intuitive library app that builds on the core experience from the OverDrive app. We closely reviewed what was working with the OverDrive app and what could be improved. During this time, we didn't want to interrupt the experience for users, so the two apps have both been available.
Thanks to feedback from librarians and readers like you, Libby is now a great app for everyone and there's no longer a reason to have two apps that do the same thing. If you've enjoyed using the OverDrive app, we really hope you'll love Libby.

Do you have a Kindle Fire? You have two options regarding Libby and the OverDrive App:
1. Because Amazon has yet to accept OverDrive's submission of Libby to their App Store, all Kindle Fire users can continue using the OverDrive app until further notice.
2. If you want to make the switch to Libby as a Kindle Fire user, you can sideload the app onto your device by following these instructions.
