Website and Catalog Tip of the Week – Downloadable Content

Did you know the library has a huge collection of downloadable content? We are talking books, movies, music, games and more. Some of them are even yours to keep! Curious? Read on!

eBooks

If you like to read books on your Kindle, iPad or other device, you should definitely check out Overdrive, Cloud Library and Hoopla. You are almost guaranteed to find something you want to read in the hundreds of thousands of books available between the three. All have apps for your Apple, Android, Kindle and Windows devices.

eAudiobooks

Overdrive, Cloud Library and Hoopla have audiobooks as well, but if you like listening to books you'll also want to take a spin with OneClick Digital. OneClick provides access to thousands of audiobooks and most titles are always available and require no holds or wait lists.

Magazines

If you love reading magazines, you'll love Flipster and Zinio. Between the two you'll find all the best magazines like 5280, US Weekly, ESPNTime, People and so much more. Both allow you to read in your browser or download their app, and the best part: the magazines are yours to keep!

Movies and TV

For movies and video, we have InstantFlix (powered by IndieFlix) and Hoopla. From Hollywood blockbusters to documentaries, you can watch movies on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Most videos through InstaFlix are also available on Roku and Xbox so you can watch on your TV as well.

Music

If you like free music, you'll love Freegal. Use it to download up to five songs per week (yours to keep!) and stream up to three hours of music per day. With over 11 million songs available, there's something for everyone. Streaming music is also available through Hoopla which has not just the hits, but hard-to-find music as well.

Games

Play unlimited Android and PC games for free with OnePlay. No holds, no waiting. Download the games you want to your computer and play them whenever and wherever you are.
