eBooks & eAudiobooks

The Library offers the following resources for digital books: Libby, Hoopla, and ComicsPlus.

Libby and Hoopla also provide magazines, as well as music and video.


Get the Libby App for on-the-go access to the eLibraryNJ collection of eBooks & eAudiobooks

First-time users: download and install the Libby app.

  • Answer ‘Yes’ to the first question.
  • Click Search for a Library and type in Scotch Plains.
  • Select the option that says eLibrary NJ / Middlesex Automation Consortium / Scotch Plains Public Library.
  • Current users of the app:
    • If you need to sign in, select Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium as your library, then login with your library barcode number and PIN.
  • Search, browse, borrow books or place holds. Once you’ve borrowed a title it will download and you can start reading or listening. Watch an introductory video for further help

Access Libby (eLibraryNJ) on your computer, too!
  • On the eLibraryNJ website you can search for and borrow titles–just click Sign In first and select Libraries of Middlesex Automation Consortium.
  • Once you’ve borrowed a book, it will be available to read or listen online, and also to download in your app.

Do you use a dedicated Kindle eReader (such as the Paperwhite or Oasis)?
  • You can send books from the eLibraryNJ to your Kindle eReader.
  • These instructions are slightly outdated as they refer to the Overdrive app, but start at step 2 and follow the remaining instructions.

Do you use a Kindle Fire tablet?
  • The Libby app is not available through the Amazon app store. There is a workaround that allows you to install it, if you wish. (Thanks to the Cheshire Public Library for these instructions.)
  • You can also use the free Kindle app which is installed on the Fire.
    • Borrow eBooks through the eLibraryNJ website, and where available choose Read with Kindle option.
