GPL provides digital books and audiobooks for checkout through Overdrive.  You will need to download the Libby for Overdrive application.   If you are using a Kindle device you will need to download the Overdrive application. Once the application is downloaded, open it.  It will ask if you want to sign in with a library card, choose yes.  It will ask you for the name of your library, type Goddard Public Library, Goddard, KS.  Once GPL is chosen you will need to put in your library card number and enter the pin which is the last four digits of your phone number, unless  you have changed your password to access the library catalog.  After you are signed into the application  you can choose Library or Shelf at the bottom of the app.   Choose Library to search for books.  You can set preferences for your searches. 


Make sure before you borrow an item that you change the checkout time from 7 to 14 days.  Once an item is checked out you can access the book by choosing the shelf option.  You can also access your holds in this way.                                                             


If you have difficulty setting up this application or accessing your items, please bring your device to the Library and we will assist you.


You can access the eLibrary on the web at
