I have nothing to read!"
We know these are difficult times. Many of you are home missing your library books. We hear you! Now more than ever we are encouraging you to use our online digital resources.  We know for many the transition is hard going from a physical  
( I love the feel) of a book to a phone, iPad, or Tablet.
You may be asking "How do I even begin?"   
Jen Laseman, our Head of Teen Services, has got you covered! She has put together an awesome step by step guide on how to get apps onto your device.   
Once you know how to do this for Libby and Overdrive  
(one of our platforms for ebooks and audio books), the process is the same for many of our other resources. Hoopla and RBDigital to name a few.
So what are you waiting for?!  
Watch Jen's great video and get back to reading!
