Summer Reading List

Jul 02, 2018 11:41AM ● By Andre Velez
Summer afternoons are meant for hammock swinging and book reading. When you’re ready
for your next read, no need to head to the library, the book store, or the Kindle department on Just open up Libby and gain instant access to thousands of ebooks and audio books available at the local library. All you need is a library card, and you can borrow digital
brain-boosting materials for free, no matter where you happen to be. Once you download,
you can read in the Libby app or send to your Kindle—your choice—and dive in.

book will be added to your library and you’ll get notified that it’s ready for you to read. Here’s the
