Your IndyPL Library card gives you free access to e-books, music, movies, audiobooks, online courses, and more. You can read or listen to books on most mobile devices or your computer.
We partner with several different platforms to provide these services the same way you might subscribe to more than one movie streaming platform (Netflix, Hulu, Disney+) at home.
To see all of our digital collections, go to our e-Books & Streaming page. On that page each service has its own tile to tell you details like loan limits and provide links to each service's website or app. Video tutorials are available for each one.
Some of the services will simply ask you to enter your library card number. Others will require you to set up an account. Either way, your Library card number is your ticket to get access. If you do not have an IndyPL Library card or need to renew your card, you may be able to apply or renew online.
