You Choose How You Want to Read

Online in a web browser: There are no limits to the number of books you can read, and you don't have to set up an account if you're in Arizona. However, creating an account will allow you to personalize your reading experience and access the collection while traveling outside the state. Google Chrome is the preferred web browser; we do not recommend Internet Explorer.

Offline on a tablet: You can also read online using your tablet, or download to your device to read later. Devices that support the BiblioBoard library app include: Android, iPad® (iOS versions 8+), Kindle Fire HD®, Nexus tablets®, Android tablets and Nexus® and Galaxy® tablets.

Smartphones: The BiblioBoard app is now available for smartphones. Devices include: iPhone® (iOS versions 8+), Android, Nexus® and Galaxy®
