To log in, all you will need is the barcode number from the back of your GPL library card, and your 10-digit phone number.

New titles recently added to our e-book offerings include:

  • GISD San Gabriel River Readers and Red Poppy books
  • Teen titles
  • New York Times Best Sellers in e-book and e-audiobook formats
  • Genre fiction (cozy mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction, and more)
  • Nonfiction titles including self-help, history, biography and autobiography, and more

Those new titles and thousands of others are now available through Overdrive/Libby, where library cardholders can access them.

We are grateful to the Friends of the Georgetown Public Library and other donors for their unwavering support. In this time of crisis, our Friends group very quickly made funds available so that staff could purchase hundreds of new e-book titles to serve our community who are staying home to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Thank you to our Friends!
