Entertainment on the Go

So you have the family all packed up, but you need to find some ways to entertain them on your long holiday trip. Luckily there is a ton of downloadable content available with a San José Public Library card.

Download eMusic, eMovies, eBooks, and eAudiobooks onto your mobile device, and then you will be ready to hit the road!

Some Tips

  • Download the vendor apps onto your mobile device.
  • Make sure your WiFi is connected.
  • Double-check to make sure all items are fully downloaded.
  • Have each family member use their own library card since some checkouts, such as Hoopla, are limited to six (6) items per month.
