Overview

If you are a first time user setting up access to eBooks or eAudiobooks on a mobile device or laptop we strongly recommend you bring your device with you to the library's Reference Desk during our regular hours for hands-on assistance.

The library offers two services which allow users to download and enjoy both audiobooks and ebooks on a variety of devices. In addition, the library also provides access to Zinio for Libraries which allows users access to a variety of magazines from their tablet, phone, or computer. Use the links above for detailed information about taking advantage of these services or for requesting assistance in their use.

ALL services require that users have access to a valid library card in good standing as well as a unique PIN. If you are unaware of your current standing OR do not know your PIN please contact the library by calling 732-873-8700.

Both Cloud Library and OneClickdigital are currently unsupported by Amazon, except with their tablet readers (Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX). If you are currently using an unsupported device we recommend you email Amazon at kindle-feedback@amazon.com to encourage them to make all their Kindles work with additional library ebook platforms. Both the Cloud Library and OneClickdigital apps work with other devices--PCs, tablets or phones—and we hope you will be able to continue to enjoy the eBooks provided through FTPL.
