Southgate Digital Collection and Overdrive
You can find eBooks, eAudiobooks, and eMagazines through Download Destination, or through the Libby app, available on both the App Store and Google Play. To sign in, all you need is your library card number and PIN! If you have trouble logging on, let us know, we'll be happy to help. You can read or listen with desktop computers, tablets, phones, Kindle, and more; there are instructions and guides on how to use several popular devices with Download Destination or Libby.
We now offer access to Hoopla, which gives you the ability to enjoy books, movies, audiobooks, comics, music, and more! Hoopla works a bit differently than our other digital offerings. Your library card gives you 3 play credits each month, which can be used to borrow any Hoopla title. The library pays only for titles that are borrowed, no upfront cost for access.
Because the library pays for each item borrowed, we ask that, if you are searching for titles that may be available through Overdrive, you check there for it first. Also, please avoid borrowing items you’re not sure you want; this will help us manage the cost of Hoopla, and prevent you from wasting one of your 3 monthly play credits.
There are also subject specific eBook databases available through MEL and Ebsco
