e-book Libraries “popping-up” in Buckeye

Post Date:09/09/2019 2:51 pm

Beginning Sept. 3, e-book Libraries will start popping-up all over Buckeye and instantly deliver e-books to residents beyond the walls of the Coyote Branch or Downtown Library, and even the Roadrunner Bookmobile. 

A “Pop-Up Library” is a small, mobile hotspot that can quickly download e-books to your phone or tablet. Once an e-book is downloaded to your device from the Pop-Up Library, you’ll be able to access it any time, without using data. Lady on tablet, instructions on how to use pop up library

Buckeye is the first city in Arizona to implement Pop-Up Libraries. A grant from the Arizona State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services made this new technology possible. 

To take advantage of this service, residents are not required to have a Buckeye Public Library Card. One of the goals of the program is to reach non-card holders to expose them to library services.

Users are invited to get a FREE Buckeye Public Library Card that will provide access to an additional 10,000+ eBook titles and other services, opening up a world of possibilities by providing access and resources to keep you inspired, engaged and connected. 

September is Library Card Sign-up Month and any Buckeye resident who signs up for a new card or updates their existing card is automatically entered to win one of four Kindle Fires, courtesy of Friends of the Buckeye Public Library.

You can pre-register for a Buckeye Public Library Card, then stop by either library or the Roadrunner Bookmobile with a photo ID to activate and receive your card.
