Plymouth Library Goes Digital

Have you been missing the cozy comfort of the Plymouth Library and Reading Room in our Center for Spiritual Growth? Now you can access digital books from our library using the Overdrive system. The new digital library is sponsored by the Plymouth Board of Spiritual Growth and funded by a competitive grant from the Plymouth Foundation.

Go to plymouthchurch.overdrive.com and set up your login. You may sign up for an Instant Digital Card on your smart phone using the Campaign Code: puccwinter20. Remember to select United States for your phone country code. If you need help signing up, email the Library Committee (overdrive@plymouthchurch.com).

Our new digital selections feature books on Social Justice, Spiritual Growth, Climate Concerns, and selections for Plymouth reading groups and all church reading. The collection includes fiction, nonfiction, streaming videos, audio and digital-print books. You may suggest new books on our Overdrive page or by contacting the Plymouth Library Committee: overdrive@plymouthchurch.com. Final selection decisions will be made by the Plymouth Library Committee.

You may read or listen to our books on a computer, tablet, smart phone, or a digital reading device such as a Kindle or Nook. You may use several applications including Overdrive and Libby to read, listen or view. If you are a Des Moines area library Overdrive/Libby user or an Iowa Bridges reader, you may already be familiar with the system. Just sign up for a Plymouth instant card and add our church library to your library list. Our books will be checked out one at a time for 14 days and may be renewed if no one else is waiting. You may return a book early if you want to check out another book. Some books may be available to be checked out by many people at the same time.
