Car rides make for EXCELLENT family audiobook listens!

Do you know about these FREE ways to listen to audiobooks?
If you have a Carnegie Library Card, Allegheny County Library Card, or a Beaver County Library Card, you can access Overdrive to borrow from a large selection of audiobooks! Search your library’s catalog for available audiobooks (or e-books). You can place a hold on a book to request it, or check it out if it is available. Then you can download it and play it on your phone!

And getting audiobooks or ebooks from Hoopla is even easier! Once you sign in with your library card, you can check out 7-10 books a month! These books are always ready to be checked out (you do not have to wait for them to be available!) and they can stream from your device or be downloaded to it! There are a ton of choices between Overdrive and Hoopla! And if your local library doesn’t have the ebook or audiobook you are looking for, all Pennsylvanians can get a Free Library of Philadelphia Card and get electronic books from them, too!
