Here are some of the amazing things your card grants you access to:

hoopla is a digital service that allows you to download and stream movies, TV shows, music, ebooks, audiobooks, and comics. All hoopla content is available immediately and there are no wait times to borrow items, but you are limited to borrowing 5 items per month. You can download the hoopla app on Apple or Android devices, use their website on your computer, or use smart TV products like Apple TV and Android TV to stream on your television.

Borrow eBooks, audiobooks, and more – anywhere, anytime. All you need is a valid library card. Overdrive includes popular and classic fiction, non-fiction, videos, and audiobooks that you can download, stream to read, view, or listen on your computer or mobile device.

For the youngest readers, the Tumblebook library has nearly 1000 titles online including many by popular authors such as Melanie Watt, Doreen Cronin, and Robert Munsch. Children can read independently, or enjoy animated stories being read to them.
