How it works
The Greater Phoenix Digital Library works just like a physical library; You can checkout, read/listen, renew and place holds on books and audiobooks. You can also return items early or they will be returned automatically on their due date. Up to ten items can be checked out at a time and have a two week checkout period. Best of all, there are no late fees!
