BARTLESVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY ADDS A NEW EBOOK & EAUDIO BOOK CHECKOUT FEATURE!

To get started, click (HERE) to connect to the BPL catalog, and search for the book you want
to listen to or read.
In this example, we used The Count of Monte Cristo.

Verify that the OverDrive icon is showing below the book and that the
CHECK OUT button is on the right side.

When you see the Overdrive icon and the CHECK OUT option, this means you can check it out onto your OverDrive or Libby App, directly from the BPL catalog!

Select CHECK OUT
,
(a prompt will appear for logging into your BPL account
if not already logged in)
then the eBook or eAudio Book (in the format you chose)
is automatically added to your
OverDrive or Libby App Bookshelf!

Simply switch over to the OverDrive or Libby App, download the book, then listen or read your selection via the

OverDrive or Libby App!

Bartlesville Public Library has been working hard to
make this happen for our patrons,
allowing all available formats of materials to be

accessible through our catalog.
We are excited that it has finally come together!

If you need help with the new feature, downloading the OverDrive or Libby App onto your mobile device(s) or simply have a question,
the BPL Librarians are here for you!

As we see an influx of parents and students learning to do virtual school, remember the many invaluable resources Bartlesville Public Library offers, virtually and on-site!

According to a survey, 70% of parents who homeschool noted that the public library is their most valuable resource. It is important to know how to access the library’s digital collection and all of the benefits it can provide as well!

With Libby, you can instantly borrow content to help expand on student interests. Having easily accessible, instant resources helps students dive deeper into what they want to learn about it.
For example, if a particular book is required for a lesson, it is very easy to check it out from the digital collection, and never worry about late fees!

Even if your student just wants to take a break from academics and curl up with the newest in the Wimpy Kid series or a comic from the Marvel collection, borrowing eBooks or eAudio Books is a great way to get books fast. Whether it is for school or for fun, reading is reading!

Parents can benefit too with titles that can sharpen their own skills while getting a refresher on upcoming curriculum and ideas for fun and creative learning activities.
Download the Libby app onto any mobile device today, and have an extra library resource available!
