If there was ever a time that one should have a UPL library card, that time is now! Multiple new digital materials and services are available for cardholders to access adult, teen and children’s eBooks, eAudio, magazines, movies, music and more.
First, check-out Zinio™, a new UPL service that offers dozens of popular magazines to be streamed or downloaded from the comfort of your own device on demand. Discover your favorites in categories such as Home and Garden, Food, Entertainment, Health, Women’s or Men’s Interest and more. There are several selections in Spanish. Even better, there is no waiting, no returning, nor any fees. It is free, any time, day or night and as easy as 1-2-3!

- Create an account by entering your email, your library card #, and a password. That’s it!
Next, check-out an eBook or eAudio book. Hundreds of UPL cardholders have already borrowed eBooks through OverDrive, but now more selections are available from library services like RB Digital and hoopla. Like music? Stream concerts of all eras and music genres through Qello, and borrow digital movies, TV, audiobooks, music and more from hoopla as well.
While browsing these new services take a moment to check-out a few classic resources: Chilton Auto Repair Center for the DIY car repair enthusiasts, or conduct market research for a small business through Reference USA, learn a new language with Rosetta Stone, and try the in-house use of Ancestry: Library Edition to name a few.
Finally, take a look at the program calendars that are chock full of free cultural, educational and entertaining events for children through adults! Babies, toddlers and their parents come try one of our story times, bigger kids and teens can sign up for STEAM programs like computer coding, game nights, movies or art programs, and adults can watch a concert, hear a local history lecture, get career help, sit in on an ESL conversation group and so much more. And of course, you can still come in and check-out a print book too!
