Library 101: Check out our eLibrary!
With the holidays coming up, whether you’re planning a road trip or a nice stay-cation, Plano Public Library has resources to make your holidays more enjoyable, even if you don’t have time to visit your local branch!
Check out OverDrive and Libby and find eBooks for the whole family!
OverDrive is where you’ll find our eBooks and eAudiobooks – and even some eMagazines! With titles for kids, teens, and everyone else, you’re sure to find something for everyone! If you’re on the move and need to read or listen on a tablet or mobile device, download the Libby app to access our entire OverDrive collection on-the-go. If you need help with the Libby App, follow this link to get started, or browse this page for help on a variety of topics.
Access Newspapers and Magazines online
Looking for something a little more brief while waiting on that flight? Plano Public Library provides access to eMagazines and newspapers through a variety of apps to cater to your interests and needs. Like the New York Times? You can access it online with your Plano Library card (contact your local branch for the code). If you’re looking for a different newspaper, PressReader has a variety of newspapers and magazines for you to peruse. If you can’t find the magazine you’re looking for, check out Flipster for even more titles!
Browse Kanopy for streaming movies, documentaries, and more
Your Plano Public Library card gives you access to Kanopy, a streaming service with tons of titles suitable for adults and children. If you haven’t used Kanopy with your Plano Public Library card before, check out this excellent blog post on setting up your account and using Kanopy, or browse this help page for other information!
