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.
In addition to Download Destination/Lilbby, we offer access to Hoopla! Hoopla works a bit differently; every month, Southgate patrons receive a set number of play credits, that can be used to borrow any Hoopla title. Beginning July 1st, 2021,10 play credits will be available per month! Hoopla offers a few things Download Destination/Libby doesn't, such as music and movies, and it broadens access to ebooks and audiobooks.
With Hoopla, the library only pays when an item is borrowed. Because of this, we ask that, if you are searching for titles that may be available through Download Destination/Libby, 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 monthly play credits.
There are also subject specific eBook databases available through MEL and Ebsco
