  1. Two questions:

    1. what is the length of time an e-book is available once it’s been transferred to my Kindle?

    2. Are e-books able to be renewed?

    Thank you

  2. Can I listen to an audio book on my Kindle Fire. I have tried with no success.
    Thanks,
    Carol

  3. How do i find a certain author on overdrive. The new format is more confusing.

    • Hello Patricia,

      At the upper right-hand side of the OverDrive website is an icon that looks like a magnifying glass. Click on that icon to bring up a search box to search by author, title, book series, narrator for audiobooks, etc…

  4. How do I return books from my kindle after I read them before they are due back

  5. Do any of the Warren libraries offer Mango languages on-line? If so, please instruct me regarding how to access the web-site.
    Thank you.

    • Hello Ellen,

      The Warren Public Library does not offer Mango Languages. We do have a similar language learning database called Pronunciator. You can access it from our database page here.

      Regards,

  6. How do I get a PIN for the Freegal service?

    • Hello Michael,

      You established a PIN when you filled out your application for a library card. To get your PIN simply visit the circulation desk of any Warren Public Library location with your ID and library card. Staff can provide you with your PIN or can change it for you.

      Regards,

  7. I’m having issues placing holds and borrowing books through overdrive. The librarian was unsuccessful as well. My card is up to date. Please help.

  8. When I enter my Warren zip code on Freegal, it only gives me an Air Force & a Navy library to choose from…not WPL?!

    • Hello Lisa,

      Here is the direct link for Freegal if you are using a PC: https://libcoopmi.freegalmusic.com/home.

      If you are searching in the app, type in your zip code and scroll through the list and select Suburban Library Cooperative, as Freegal is provided to us through the Cooperative.

      Hope this helps – let us know if you have any other questions!

  9. Can you buy or recent books for college?

    • Hello Samantha,

      Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, our eBook and eAudiobook collections are geared to popular fiction and nonfiction titles and we are unable to buy eBook copies of college textbooks.
