Unfortunately most Kindle eReaders are not compatible with our eBook websites because they do not use the industry standard formats for eBooks (EPUB or PDF). Only Amazon Fire tablets are compatible.

Tap ‘Find My Library’. Libby will look for the library closest to your location. You can also tap on ‘Search Libraries’ and look for ‘Gore District Libraries’.

Tap on ‘Add Your Card’ to sign in with your library card number, using lower case for the initial letter. The default pin is l1brary (1 instead of an i)
