Your Library account must be current and in good standing at all times to be able to use Library2Go.
Each account may have up to 6 Library2Go items checked out at a time. Once the downloaded files expire they are no longer playable/readable. Expired files may require manual deletion on some devices. A title may be checked out again if there are no holds on the title. You will be notified by email when a copy you have placed on hold is available.
Note: Your check outs and holds at Library2Go do not count towards the items you check out at your local library.
Hoopla offers thousands of movies, television shows, music albums and audiobooks from major Hollywood studios, record companies and publishers. Hoopla also offers eBooks and comics! Instantly stream or temporarily download up to 8 titles every month for free with your Cook Memorial Library Card.
Content can be streamed on mobile devices or online. Titles can be downloaded for offline watching or listening.
The borrowing period for a movie or television episode is 3 days, a music album is 7 days, and an eBook, eAudiobook, or comic is 21 days.
Titles are automatically returned. However, 2 days prior to the date when access to the title expires, customers will see a renewal button which will allow them to renew the item and extend the loan period if they wish. This is essentially borrowing the item again, and will count towards the monthly borrowing allowance.
Titles can be returned early.
Available on the website, the AppStore, Google Play, amazon, amazon alexa, Roku, and Chromecast.
Freading is a downloadable e-book service exclusively for Cook Memorial Library patrons. All you need to use Freading is your Cook Memorial Library card number and PIN. Freading, from Library Ideas, has over 30,000 titles with more being added each day. Freading e-books are available with simultaneous access so there are no holds needed—an unlimited number of library customers may download a Freading e-book title at the same time.
Freading offers fiction and nonfiction e-books in all genres as well as a top download and new arrivalssection.
After you log in, a checkout usage counter can be seen in the top righthand corner of the page. This indicates how many Freading e-books you have checked out. For instance “2/3” means you have used two checkouts out of the three allotted. When you choose a book, the numberof checkouts is deducted from your account. Patrons may check out three books per week for a two-week loan period; unused check outs will roll over for up to four weeks.

Cook Memorial Library offers the TumbleBook Library for use by our library patrons. This library is a collection of TumbleBooks - animated, talking picture books - suitable for elementary school children. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books, adding sound, animation, music and narration to create an electronic picture book. These electronic books are a literacy resource that keeps children interested and involved in reading and are great for children learning to read. The interactive web site keeps children engaged and contributes to success in school while helping to instill a love of reading.
The TumbleBook Library collection can be accessed online from any library computer or from home through a direct link on our library web site. The TumbleBook Library includes a wide selection of stories that come to life for children through engaging animation. The web site is easy for children to navigate and allows children to hear stories read fluently. There are even options to hear the stories in French or Spanish. Each story comes with puzzles and games geared to ensure reading comprehension.
