The East Travis Gateway Library District is a member of the Central Texas Digital Consortium. This service entitles all ETGLD patrons to access to free Audiobooks and eBooks via Overdrive. Logging in is simple: click on Sign In, choose “East Travis Gateway Library District” as your library, then enter your library card number and password (your ten digit phone number). Each account is allowed to check out 5 items at any time and keep each for 2 weeks at a time.
Now you have found an item to borrow, how do you listen to it or read it? The Overdrive or Libby app will need to be downloaded in order to use your selections. Each app will give you the same access but the Overdrive app can be downloaded on more types of devices including your computer if it is compatible. Libby is intended for Android and Apple phones and tablets.
Audible is not charging for their service as long as schools remain closed. This service is a great resource for audiobooks for children and teens. They also feature a number of classics that you can check off your to-read list!
Peruse the largest library in the world from home. The Library of Congress features a wide variety of different material types and would be highly entertaining for history buffs!
