Meade County Public Library eBooks and AudioBooks

The MCPL allows you to have access to a large collection of eBooks and Audiobooks through their apps Libby and Hoopla. If you already have a MCPL card, you can use that card to access these apps. 

You can also sign up (from home) for a Digital Card that is only good for online resources, such as Hoopla and Libby. This card is quick and easy to sign up for but will not allow you to checkout physical items from the library. Click here to sign up for a digital card
