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.
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!

Our intent is to include kits that will appeal to all ages, from tots to teens.” The kits will be a valuable addition to the STEM-related resources that BPL already offers in the form of books, dvds, databases and digital information.What is STEM? It is an educational concept in which Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are integrated into cohesive educational experiences, utilizing hands-on learning. At a time when technical and scientific skills are increasingly important in school and in the work force, it is never too early to start introducing these ideas to the children in our lives!

Also welcome are original music, poetry, monologues…whatever you’d like to share. We do require that it be content-appropriate for public sharing. See you on Friday, March 19th, 6:30-8:30pm!
