You can access Overdrive e-books one of two ways:

Log in with your library card barcode number. Your PIN is the last four digits of your library card barcode number. 

Some Overdrive e-books have waitlists. There is a limit of 5 loans at a time and 5 holds at a time. You may search for a particular e-book, or browse the e-books.

Overdrive also offers audiobooks, so double check that you're borrowing the correct format.

Hoopla Digital

Read e-books on your tablet or phone with the free Hoopla Digital app

You may also read these e-books in your Internet browser at HooplaDigital.com

Click "Get Started Today" to set up an account using your email address and library card number.  You may check out up to five Hoopla items per month. 

Hoopla e-books never have waitlists.  However, if the library-wide daily budget cap has been reached, you will get an error message when you try to check out an item.  In that case, try to check your item out again the next day, or anytime after midnight. 

Search for a particular e-book, browse the e-books or check our our staff recommendations for Hoopla. Hoopla also offers audiobooks, so double check that you are borrowing the correct format.

Holiday Building Closing

The Library remains open even if the building will close for a little while...

Because of rising rates of COVID-19 infection in the County and in the town of New Providence, we are being cautious and closing our building to public access from Monday, December 21 through at least Monday January 11 subject to a decrease in infection levels.

Staff is, of course, in the building and we will continue to offer foyer pickup, craft kits and window shopping.  We also have special book bundles prepared for fast  and contact-free gift giving which are available in the foyer.  Take advantage of our Choose 3 Books for Me service or use the Browse Our Shelves feature to request items.  Make sure to check out Ms. Sam's Story Time Room to make browsing for kids' books fun and high tech.

Check our full schedule of events, too.  We look forward to welcoming you back into the library in the New Year and we hope that the holidays bring peace, joy and health to you and all of your loved ones.
