Downloadable Books, Audiobooks, & More! from Libby
Did you know that you can borrow electronic books and audiobooks from the library? You can enjoy them on almost any device, including your phone, tablet, Kindle, or computer. (Magazines & videos too!)
The simplest way to get started is by downloading the Libby app on your phone or tablet. Libby allows you to find, borrow, read, and listen to books all in one place. If you are using a Kindle or computer, beehive.overdrive.com will connect you to the library’s digital collection. You just need your library card and PIN to get started.
As part of the Beehive Library Consortium our library partners with the Utah State Library system in sharing electronic titles with patrons around Utah. American Fork residents always jump to the front of the line for our own materials. This means that when you put a book on hold, the wait time is often shorter than anticipated. Plus, it gives librarians an idea of what our community is reading so we can purchase copies just for you.
Beanstack is the program we use to present and track various reading challenges. It’s an easy way to keep track of the books you read.
