Downloadable Library Materials

Borrow and download or stream books, audiobooks, magazines, movies and music for FREE with your Fremont Library Card!

If your card is from another library, you must use the apps provided by your home library.

eBooks & Audiobooks

LIBBY/OVERDRIVE

Overdrive (Libby App) is the only e-book provider for libraries that also includes access to Kindle books, although not all eBooks are playable on Kindle readers. The books and audiobooks in Fremont's Libby/Overdrive app have all been curated by Fremont Librarians.

Each cardholder may have 5 checkouts at a time. Items may be renewed two days before the due date if no one else is waiting. You can return titles early to free up your number of available checkouts, and you can place holds on unavailable titles as well as those that you recommend through the Overdrive website.

HOOPLA

Most of the Hoopla catalog is available for instant borrows, making it great for when you want to read the sequel right now! There's also an easy "Kids Mode" that will hide adult titles from view.

Each cardholder may borrow 30 total Hoopla items per month. A new set of borrows are issued the 1st of each month; unused borrows do not roll over. We have also added Flex Borrows that are one person at a time, limit 5 borrows at a time of any Flex titles.

To read books or listen to audiobooks offline, you must use the mobile app.

There is no Hoopla App for the Kindle Fire Tablet, but you may stream through the internet browser (no offline availability).


eREAD ILLINOIS BY AXIS360

Is the book you want currently checked out on Overdrive? Check here! Fremont offers access to the books curated by eRead Illinois, a consortium of libraries across northern Illinois. Limit 5 borrows at a time per cardholder. 

Fremont Library does not purchase the titles offered on eRead Illinois. To recommend eBooks for purchase please use the Overdrive website.
