Get App-y: Access your Library on the go or from the couch

Just because you aren’t physically at the Library doesn’t mean you can’t be there digitally. Whether you are on your phone or tablet, there’s a collection of apps that allow you to access much of our extensive collection from wherever you are. All you need is a Library card. 

Download the app to your device, create an account, and go. You can access eBooks, eAudiobooks, magazines, music, movies, and TV shows. There also are special apps to help with learning a new language or getting help with homework assignments.  

Download these apps on your Android or Apple device. Some apps also are available for televisions and Amazon devices.
