Library collections

  • cloudLibrary – 35,000+ eBooks and eAudiobooks.  Best for browsing and short holds lists.
  • Library2Go/Libby App – 80,000+ eBooks and eAudiobooks shared through the Oregon Digital Libraries Consortium.  Best for selection.
    • We recommend using both ebook platforms to maximize your options.  Here’s a handy comparison chart that highlights the benefits of both services!
  • Tumblebooks – animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love.  They are created by taking existing picture books, adding animation, sounds, music and narration to produce an electronic picture book (and some classics) which you can read, or have read to you.

GAPS cardholders will need to enter the 7 digit student ID number as the library card.  The GAPS password is the 1st 3 letters of the first name & the last 3 numbers of the student ID.

If you are unable to log into your account, it may be because your Albany Public Library card is expired or blocked due to fines. You will need to address any account issues before proceeding with your digital checkouts.
