Legally stream and download music for free - and keep what you download forever!
Question: I want to listen to audiobooks on my phone. Can the library help me?
Answer: Full Access and Digital Access cardholders can use Hoopla and Libby, streaming platforms that allow you to borrow audiobooks from the comfort of your home! Each has an app you can download to an Android or iPhone.
To use these apps, you'll need your library card number, PIN, and an email address.
Check out the audiobook page on our website to get started, or see a tutorial for Hoopla or for Libby.
If you need more help, reach out to your local branch and we'll be happy to assist! You can also check our calendar to see if we have any One-on-One Tech Help sessions coming up.
