What can I borrow & download with my Library card?

With your Winnipeg Public Library card, you have 24/7, anywhere-in-the-world access to:

20,000+ eBooks, including bestselling titles

eBooks are digital versions of your favorite traditional books, optimized for reading on a mobile device like an eInk eReader or an iPad/tablet.

Downloadable eBooks are available from OverDrive and Freading; online (streaming/read in your browser) eBooks are available from OverDrive, McGraw Hill, Tumblebooks, Bookflix and more.

5000+ eAudiobooks

eAudiobooks are also a form of "eBook", but instead reading them on the screen, you listen to a recording of someone reading the book - great for commuting!

eAudiobooks are available from OverDrive and hoopla digital.

160+ full colour eMagazine subscriptions

With eMagazines from Zinio, you get full-colour, cover-to-cover issues of all your favourite weekly and monthly magazines, like US Weekly, National Geographic, Food Network Magazine, Popular Science, Newsweek, Cosmopolitan and more!

Read through them on your computer screen or download them to your iPad/tablet for offline reading - perfect for road trips and plane rides.

100,000+ full music albums to stream

Sometimes you hear a song on the radio, but you're not sure yet if you're going to like the whole album. With your library card, you can listen to free, full-length music albums without the risk!

Billboard-topping albums from hoopla digital can be borrowed for seven days of offline play. For those with more classical tastes, stream 100,000s of classical, folk, world and jazz through Naxos Music Library.
