Borrow eBooks

The library has partnered with other area libraries to offer the Overdrive service, an app that enables you to check out and download books electronically. Books are available as e-books and e-audiobooks. Items check out for two weeks at a time and are returned automatically at the end of the lending period. You are never fined for an overdue e-book.

Here are helpful links to Overdrive tutorials from their website:

Our library is a participant in E-Read Texas, a program by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission designed to increase the ability of Texas libraries to offer e-books to their patrons. The program utilizes an app developed by the New York Public Library called SimplyE. The SimplyE app is available for mobile devices running iOS and Android. It offers a “three-click” approach to e-books: patrons browse the e-book bookshelf, click to select a title, click again to check it out, and click to open and read it. Items are returned automatically at the end of the lending period. You are never fined for an overdue e-book, and you can place a hold on any item that is currently in use by another patron; you will be notified when it is available for checkout.
