Ebooks

New Providence Memorial Library is proud to offer these ebook services that are free with your NP Library card:

Overdrive

   libby        

If you haven't used Libby since Nov. 2023 or earlier, you'll need to add your library card to Libby again.            

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

  • Through mainlib.overdrive.com if you want to send an ebook to a Kindle, or read an ebook in your browser
  • Through the Libby by Overdrive app on iPhones, iPads, Android devices and Kindle Fire tablets. 

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 10 loans and 5 holds at a time. 

Hoopla Digital

Read ebooks on your tablet or phone with the free Hoopla Digital app. You may also read these ebooks in your web browser at HooplaDigital.com

Click "Get Started" at HooplaDigital.com to set up an account using your email address and library card number. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your library card number. You may check out up to five Hoopla items per month. 

If the library's 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. 

Palace Project

Download the Palace Project app from the App Store or Google Play to read or listen to over 20,000 free ebooks and audiobooks curated by the Digital Public Library of America and the New Jersey State Library. Choose the New Jersey State Library as your library. Instructions are available here.

Welcome to your NEW New Providence Memorial Library!

If you haven't visited us lately, be sure to come in and experience all that has changed. Our new layout has something for everyone. Browse our new displays, choose your favorite spot to cozy up and read, or sit down to work. Explore our expanded catalog now that we're part of the MAIN Library Alliance. You can request materials in our online catalog from any member library to be delivered here for you to pickup, if we don't have what you need in house. 

We are thrilled to be FINE FREE in an effort to encourage you to come back and keep borrowing. Your library card is your key to all free subscriptions, online resources, and digital materials, too. So get your library card and make a note of your barcode number!

We look forward to seeing you here,
