The Learning & Development Center has partnered with the County Library to facilitate access to their resources for both development and leisure. Some of their resources include OverDrive, which has over 1,000 titles available in eBook or audiobook format that you can access with a computer or a mobile device. Several of the books recommended in the Academies are offered in audiobook format at the County Library. You can also borrow or browse from the Library’s collection of your favorite digital magazines through RB Digital. There is no waiting list, no need to return issues, and no limit to the number of magazines you can borrow.  In addition, you can instantly stream movies, music, and television shows through Hoopla. All these services are free to patrons. To access them, you will need to register for a Library card. For more information on resources available at the Library, please click here.
