Did you know, even if you don't live in a certain library's district, you can sign up for an out-of-state eCard to check out eBooks and Audiobooks with? There are only a few libraries that offer this, especially where they'll mail it to you. I looked into the different libraries that offer this:
Brooklyn Public Library NY-- $50 a year (Works with email and they mail a physical card to you.)
*Orange County Library FL-- $125 a year (This one works for Out of USA Countries)
*Fairfax County Library VA-- $27 a year
Houston Public Library TX-- $40 a year (This one does it all by email...even the Card gets emailed to you.)
*Free Library of Philadelphia PA-- $50 a year (This one works for Out of USA Countries)
*note--I'm not certain if all these libraries will mail the card to you, but I think they do.
I utilize both the Brooklyn, NY Library and the Houston Library. They have long wait for holds especially Houston. I've been using Brooklyn for 2 years (just paid for my 3rd year) and Houston for about six months. I love it because I can use Libby (best Audiobook Player there is) through Overdrive. My local library went to CloudLibrary, which has a horrible Audiobook Player.
