The library offers free eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines through the Libby, by Overdrive app. Ten items may be borrowed at a time and there are no late fees. eMagazine checkouts are unlimited.

Libby is not available in Amazon’s app store, but Kindle users can visit libbyapp.com to stream eBooks, listen to eAudiobooks and read eMagazines while connected to the internet. Please see our separate Kindle instructions.
