OverDrive, our primary digital media catalog, is where you will find the majority of popular new releases (in addition to midlist, backlist and classic literature titles). We’re working hard to ensure your wait times for these titles are reasonable.


Hoopla provides instant access — no wait times or hold lists — to a growing collection of e-books. It’s a great companion to OverDrive because you can find something to read immediately while you’re waiting for popular bestsellers to arrive.

Comics and graphic novels are also available to check out through hoopla.

Brookline residents may read their e-books and comics/graphic novels via the hoopla website or through its Apple or Android app.
