Today I learned
Free Audiobooks and Ebooks on OVERDRIVE.
Free Graphic Novels (DC, Marvel, Image, etc), Music, TV shows, and music on HOOPLA.
Free music that you can KEEP on FREEGAL
You are PAYING for all this with your tax money - USE THEM. Most likely systems will have all 3 or 2 out of 3, so if you aren’t sure call your local library’s reference/information desk and how you can get set-up or started.
Hey, highkey from a library worker:
Overdrive has a new mobile app called LIBBY I find it easier to use. It’s the same content as Overdrive just better for mobile. Overdrive and Libby both let you send items to your kindle as well.
Can confirm Overdrive is amazing.
I work in the largest library system in my state (17 branches in total).
I use it not only for ebooks, but movies as well.
Other FREE resources to check with your library for are:
- Freegal Music (download and keep music, including current music)
- Hoopla Digital (borrow ebooks, e-audiobooks, e-graphic novels, stream movies)
- Kanopy (stream movies; also available on Roku!)
- Axis360 (usually hot or just released ebooks)
If you don’t have a library card…
If someone says libraries are a thing of the past…
BOOP THEM IN THE NOSE WITH YOUR KINDLE!
Don’t discount libraries as “quiet” places.
THEY ARE ALIVE!!!
THEY ARE LOUD!!!
THEY ARE YOUR DOORWAYS TO KNOWLEDGE!!
