Can my library card get me access to eBooks and audiobooks on my phone?

Yes! The West Fargo Public Library offers Libby and Hoopla. These services allow West Fargo Public Library cardholders (except reciprocity program cardholders) to read, listen, and watch digital media on their phone, tablet, or computer. 

The library's primary mobile app is Libby, which is connected right to the library's catalog. All items featured in Libby are owned by the West Fargo Public Library or North Dakota ODIN Consortium for you to check out. You can place holds, check out eBooks, audiobooks and magazines, and much more in Libby. One popular feature is Libby's "Available Now" tab, which shows items with no waitlists. 

Hoopla is another app available to West Fargo Public Library patrons which features more books and different types of media without waitlists, but it has some limitations. Cardholders are limited to five Hoopla checkouts per month and, because Hoopla charges the library for each and every checkout made, there is a daily spend cap in place.
