New to ebooks? Start Here

Congratulations on your new e-reader, tablet, or mobile device! We hope you enjoy borrowing digital items from the Free Library of Philadelphia. Here's a quick guide to get you on your way. 

First of all, finding digital items to check out on the Free Library's website is simple. You can start by clicking on the Digital Media button on our homepage or by taking a look at the video below that introduces our various digital platforms and shows you how to get around our site.

The majority of our Best Sellers and in-demand ebook titles come from Overdrive, but you can start searching for ebooks directly through our online catalog. For more information on discovering and downloading digital items in our catalog, view the brief how-to video below.
