Digital (Online) Collections

The Granby Public Library offers patrons several digital eBook, eAudio, and eMagazine collections so we have something for everyone!  Each collection has its own selection of materials and its own App (for phone & tablet use).  We like to describe them like separate book shelves in the same room – available for you to browse (and borrow!) whenever you like.  NOTE:  You'll need a Library Card to access these and other Library resources.  Don't have a card yet?  Granby residents can CLICK HERE to apply for a card today!

How does it work?

For those of you new to borrowing from our “eCollection,” the items are checked out just like physical books, with one person borrowing it at a time, and with the ability to place a hold if you’d like to get in line for a particular title.  Just like the physical books, we buy multiple copies of popular titles, give priority to Granby borrowers, take suggestions for future purchases, and have the ability to share the collections of all the libraries in our system.  Unlike physical books, these automatically return at the end of your borrowing period and you’ll never pay fines on digital materials.

How do I sign up?

You already have access using your Granby Library Card – just click on the links below and you can start borrowing immediately!  If you’d like to download an App and use that to borrow items, enter your library card when prompted and you will be all set!  Not working?  Give us a call and we’ll walk you through it (860-844-5275).
