eBook & Audio
The Marchant Memorial Library subscribes to a service called Overdrive for our audio books and e-books. This service can be used by anyone who has our library card. You can use this service on the computer with the Bridges-Overdrive at https://bridges.overdrive.com/. It can also be used on your smartphone or tablet using the Libby App.
For our library users, this audiobook/ebook app is free! And the best part is - it also still counts as circulation for the library!
If you have any questions about using this service, or if you need help getting your account set up, please contact your local librarian. You can call, send an email, or stop in for one-on-one help!
The library also has some audiobooks on CD that are great for long car rides!
The Libby App is available from the app store on your device.
There have been some pretty exciting changes happening in the Libby App and on the Bridges Overdrive system while we are going through the COVID-19 closures. One of the things that you will notice right off the bat if you are a user of Libby, is that you can check out 5 books now instead of 3. Some people will really notice a difference!
Another feature that is just making its debut on Libby is a section titled "On the Shelf Right Now!" These books are going to be available for anyone who wants to read them without any holds. Right now there are about 4,000 ebooks and audiobooks that are in this section, and there are plans for more titles to be added. Currently a lot of the books are classics, but it is amazing how the classics are sometimes just as relevant now as they were years ago when they were written!
Take advantage of having a little time and space, practice your social distancing, maybe stay home and read a book or two (or twelve - we won't judge!). If you need your library card number or you need help getting the Libby app to work on your device, let us know!
