How to Download E-books or digital Audiobooks
to a Computer, Tablet, or Smartphone?
Currently, Brighton Memorial Library users can get e-books and digital audiobooks through Hoopla as well as Overdrive or its mobile app, Libby*.
Hoopla is our new streaming service specifically for Brighton residents. You can access e-books, digital audiobooks, movies, television shows, music, and comics through the App. Items are available immediately- you do not need to place any holds in HOOPLA. Each library card holder can check out up to four items per month (FYI-each episode of a TV show is considered an item).
E-books/digital audiobooks are available for 3 week loans, TV shows & Movies are 3 day loans, and music albums are 7 day loans. Books can be downloaded to your device or streamed.
