The Upper Hudson Library System has a large collection of digital materials to borrow and it’s easy to access them using Libby on your desktop computer or mobile device.

Check out up to 10 items at a time for up to three weeks. If there is no waiting list, you can renew an item once. You may place requests on items and have them automatically checked out to you when they become available. There are no late fees for E-Books and digital audiobooks.

In addition to your library card, you will need a valid email address and the Libby app for mobile devices. If you do not have a mobile device, you can read E-Books in your browser or you can download software to your computer to read ebooks or listen to audiobooks.
