Apple CarPlay & 4 more Libby updates

Libby got some work done recently, and we’re excited to announce a few of the changes that have arrived in the latest release of our award-winning digital reading app, as well as the upgrades still to come. In this post, we’ll breakdown what new features you’ll find in the latest Libby update (now available in the App Store and Google Play) and what’s planned for the near future.

Libby in Apple CarPlay

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
A major update in this release is that Libby is now compatible with Apple CarPlay and has improved support for Android Auto. This makes listening to audiobooks while driving easier and safer than ever. Apple CarPlay is supported by every major automobile manufacturer, and now Libby can be your travel companion on road trips or help you combat those daily bouts of rush hour traffic.

2019 Friends of the EPL Membership Drive is ON!



Envision the New EPL! – The Membership Drive Is On!
Become a friend TODAY! – Help us reach our goal!

The Friends of Ecorse Public Library kicks off their 2019 “Envision the New EPL Membership Drive” on February 1 – October 31, 2019 in conjunction with National Friends the Library Week and beyond!  Put us on your Christmas List!  To reach our goal of 50 new members, the Friends will be asking the community to show some library love.
Ecorse residents are known for enthusiastically supporting their community. This membership drive is a great opportunity for community members to go one step further and either become a member for the first time or renew a membership that was forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
An annual Friends membership is a great value considering the perks members receive in return. The Friends use those membership dollars to support the library by funding the purchase of books, media, and supplies and by sponsoring popular library programs, including youth and adult reading challenges and other events.
