Did you know that there are over 7,500 e-books and digital audiobooks available to you online with your McAllen Public Library card? There are two apps that you can choose from- 3M Cloud Library or OverDrive– and they are compatible with almost any tablet or smartphone. All you have to do is search for McAllen Public Library in the app, sign in with your MPL card, and you’re good to go! Links to the apps and instructions can be found on the library’s e-branch page. You can have up to 6 e-books or digital audiobooks on each app, so if you download both apps, you could have 12 books at once! You don’t even have to worry about returning them or incurring any late fees, because they will automatically expire after 14 days. At the end of 14 days, you can renew them if you’re not finished reading.
Check out our cool infographic below to learn about the key features of each app. If you’re looking for something that is super easy to set up, try 3M Cloud Library. The Cloud Library also has almost 200 Spanish-language fiction titles. If you’re looking for the largest selection of audiobooks or English-language titles, try OverDrive. Or better yet, download and use them both!
