Greensboro Public Library Branches Offer Books, E-Books, Book Clubs & More | Books

Staff reports

The Greensboro Public Library is a great resource for finding a book club you might enjoy, as well as making book suggestions.

On the library’s website, you can find the addresses, phone numbers and opening hours of the library’s eight branches.

And if visiting the library isn’t your thing and you have an e-reader, you can borrow books through the website or the mobile/tablet app called Libby (overdrive.com/apps/libby). All you need is your library card number. You can send the books directly to your Kindle or download them for other devices. A video on the website will guide you through the process.

If you’re not sure what you should read next, the library offers a list of favorite national book club links:

Library branches also host book clubs and have a plan to ensure everyone gets the book they need.

Book Club Collection

Book sets are available for your book club for a special loan period. Learn more about this collection. Read new books and make new friends.

Free movies

If you prefer watching movies and documentaries, the library has a solution for that too.

Greensboro Public Library staff review films and documentaries accessible through the Kanopy service (greensboronc.kanopy.com), which is provided to all cardholders.

To use the site, enter your library card number, then sign in with Google or Facebook or create an account with your name, email address, and password.

Library card holders can watch up to five movies per month. Kanopy Kids and The Great Courses are unlimited.

You can add movies to a watchlist to watch later or just click play to watch them right away.

Some of the categories are Oscar-winning films, contemporary cinema, classic cinema, romantic comedy, drama and more.
