With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from our library's digital collection. All you need to get started is an internet connection, a library card, and these three steps:
Use the library finder on overdrive.com or in OverDrive's mobile app to find our library's digital collection and browse for titles.
Use your library card to borrow a title. Titles you've borrowed will appear on your bookshelf under your account.
On your bookshelf, you'll find options for enjoying each borrowed title, like Read (read an eBook in your browser using OverDrive Read), Play (stream a video in your browser), and Download (available for eBooks, audio-books, music, and some videos).
Hoopla - eBooks, AudioBooks
Audiobooks, eBooks, and comic books!
Hoopla is an innovative new service that partners with your local public library to bring you thousands of AudioBooks, eBooks, and comic book titles for free. There are no costs or hassles. All you need is a library card and a web browser, phone, or tablet.
From Hollywood blockbusters to best selling authors and artists, you're sure to find something you'll enjoy. But it's not just the latest titles - we also have an extensive catalog of educational materials, children's titles, foreign films, and other hard-to-find content not offered anywhere else.
The Hoopla web site and mobile apps are easy to use. We make an unlimited number of copies available to your library, so there are never any waiting lists. Start streaming immediately, or download a title to your phone or tablet for offline viewing later. We'll return it for you at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.
