I recently discovered the eResources offered by the San Jose Public Library. It’s true, I’m a little behind on the world of technology, but it’s never too late to come upon new discoveries. Our eResources offer electronic books, electronic audiobooks, streaming music, movies, electronic magazines, educational tools, and research tools for any age (children, teens, and adults). Many eResources are offered in a variety of languages.

Libby by Overdrive

As many of us, I don’t have time to read. So, I turned to eAudiobooks. I listen to them at work and at home. Checking out our eResources, I came across Libby by Overdrive. They offer eAudiobooks which are faster to get than the physical audiobook discs. Overdrive has an app called Libby that is easy to download onto your smart phone or other electronic device (latest iOS and Android compatible). I started to use the Libby by Overdrive app to listen to eAudiobooks. It is easy to download and sync across devices so I can switch what I use for listening. And, when you close the app it saves your place and picks up where you left off. I encourage people to discover and explore our services.

Survival of the Thickest Michelle Buteau

Currently, I am listening to one of my favorite comedian’s eAudiobooks using Libby by Overdrive. I enjoy when comedians read their own books. It takes the readers through the eyes of the comedian’s journey through life and how they see the world. If you get a chance, check out Michelle Buteau’s new book Survival of the Thickest.

Until next time, what virtual adventure shall we run into?
