We know you love the new technology you opened up on Christmas, and we do too! Did you know there’s a lot you can do for free from the library on your new tablet, smartphone, or eReader? Check out some of our top suggestions below, or bring your new device by the library and ask us for suggestions!
We’re big fans of Libby around here. That’s your ticket to eBooks and audiobooks you can download right to your device via READS.
Thinking about learning a new language in the new year? We can help with that via Mango Languages! They have a fantastic app that integrates perfectly with your library card.
LibriVox is another great option for free audiobooks. Volunteers across the country have volunteered to record audiobooks of public domain titles, and all of these are available as a free download through LibriVox.
Your new eReader is great, but an eReader doesn’t do any good if you don’t have any books to read on it! READS works on eReaders just as well as tablets or smartphones. Click here to start downloading books today!
We also have a variety of free eBooks listed in our catalog outside of READS. Open Library and Project Gutenberg offer free downloads without any restrictions on the number of copies in use. You can use many of these titles on eReaders as well as tablets and smartphones.
Don’t forget that you can use other library services on your device as well, like Universal Class, or our other databases. Please be advised that in order to access Ancestry.com via the Library, you must be physically in the library.
Need help figuring out the steps to some of these projects? No problem! Give us a call at 423-434-4454 and we’ll be more than happy to help you add the library to your new device.
