What's New

Whether you're going to school remotely, in person, or a bit of both, we're here to support you. 

You can:

  • Check out or place a hold on books
  • Download a free ebook or audiobook from OverDrive (here's how to do it)
  • Use our free databases that provide free journal, newspaper, and reference book articles and information
  • Try out free online services from the Boston Public Library -- like Hoopla and Kanopy (free movies!)  

Stop in or use our Curbside Pickup Service to borrow books, movies, video games, and more.

Reading an ebook

This is the perfect time to try out Libby for free access to ebooks and audiobooks 24/7.

You can browse audiobooks, ebooks, and magazines in the OverDrive collection, borrow titles with your library card, and enjoy on your computer, tablet, smartphone or eReader.  

Borrowed titles can be enjoyed immediately in your web browser or can be downloaded to the Libby or Sora app (student reading app) for mobile devices. 

Digital titles can also be enjoyed on tablets and eReader devices such as the iPad®, NOOK®, and Kindle®.  No matter how you plan to enjoy, titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!  

Books purchased by the Middleborough Library go to Middleborough card users first--so even if you have to place a hold, you'll be pushed to the top of the list.

You can also search other Massachusetts network libraries and borrow their titles.   In OverDrive, scroll to the bottom of the page and select another library system, like the Boston Public Library.  Using Libby, click on the Libby mascot in the upper-right hand corner and click Add a Library, and type in your zip code.  Select another network to add, then search.

This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your library card. 

To log in to the OverDrive site and to the app, use your library card number and PIN number (last four digits of your phone number).


Don't have a Middleboro library card?  Sign up for a temporary card.

  • Online registrations become active immediately.
  • Get into the online magazines, newspapers & databases
  • Checkout and download Overdrive materials

You have 2 months to come to the library with identification to pick up your card.
