Have you started on that yearly reading list yet?

Libby

NOTE: Libby is open even though the Libraries are closed. And you can sign up for a library card online!

The Resource Link is full of book-loving people!

Did you know there was a cheaper way to consume audiobooks? Stop paying Audible $15 per month for a single audiobook! There is a better way! Libby is a free app for all your devices that connects to your local library, allowing you to borrow up to 10 books at a time!

While libraries are not talked about much these days, they offer important services to the communities they serve. They offer free educational resources to everyone no matter how much money you make, your race, or what side of the street you grew up on.

If you have never visited your local library, go try it out when the re-open! Most libraries are connected to a network of libraries through inter-library loans. This allows you to request any title and have it shipped to your local library for free! The best news is that libraries have made it easy for you to listen to your favorite audiobooks through the app Libby!

Libby is an Overdrive app developed to make it easier to access the thousands of titles offered by your library. Through the app, you can borrow eBooks and audiobooks. You can even sign into multiple libraries using your library card. The app itself is simple and easy to set up. Once you are signed in with your library card, it only takes a few taps before you’re listening to your first book!

So, go online and get a library card and start using Libby today! Not only are you taking part in your local community, you are saving $15 a month! How’s that for value?
