Digital Content


Did you know you can read eBooks, listen to online Audiobooks, and browse through magazines on your smartphone, laptop, or desktop computer, in addition to an eReader? We also have digital comics, read-along eBooks, and educational videos for our younger audience, all with no associated fines or fees. Once the lending period is up on eContent, the items are automatically taken off your device. All you need is a library card in good standing (not expired & with less than $50 owed)!


eBrary offers eBooks in a wide range of subject areas. Areas include career development, art, cooking, and traditional school subjects (History, English, Science, etc.). Provides powerful tools to help you find, use, and manage the information you need.


Hoopla digital is a streaming platform that allows patrons to instantly access videos, audiobooks, and music for free with their Library card. Content can be streamed or downloaded from a computer browser or from the hoopla digital app, available for iOS and Android.

What we offer:

  • eBooks
  • Online audiobooks
