Step 3 - Launch the Provider's App

We recommend that new eBook and eMedia users go straight to the Provider's app for the simplest eLibrary experience.

  • Install the Provider's App on your phone or tablet.

  • Visit our Online Resources FAQs for information on available apps.

Step 4 - Check out and Enjoy
