The New York Public Library is a great resource for downloadable e-books and e-audiobooks (kindle, overdrive, 3M, MP3, and many other formats). It also has a vast collection of DVDs and books, amazing archival collections and large collection of research databases. All you need is a library card!
On Monday, 2/8, from noon-1pm, Lauren Bradley from the NYPL George Bruce branch will be in the Butler lobby on Monday (2/8) to sign people up for NYPL library cards. Anyone who lives, works, attends school, or pays property taxes in New York State is eligible to receive a free New York Public Library card.
Eligibility requirements and identification needed to sign up in person can be found at http://www.nypl.org/help/library-card/terms-conditions#Eligibility. In most cases, all that’s needed is a valid Columbia, Barnard, or other school ID.
Library card sign up can also be done in person at any NYPL library, including the Morningside Heights branch at 113th and Broadway, or by applying online at http://www.nypl.org/help/library-card.
