      • BiblioBoard app for iOS 9 (from the iTunes App Store)
      • BiblioBoard app for Android (from the Google Play Store)

The BiblioBoard platform features four collections:

1. Recovering the Classics featuring public domain classics from world literature with modern cover images.
2. Popup Picks featuring titles that will change quarterly and will include hand-curated e-books from expert librarian curators,
3. The Bodleian Library collection featuring items from Oxford University's Bodleian Library.
4. The BiblioBoard Core collection features articles, images, books, etc. spanning a wide range of topics.


Library card holders can check out and download digital media anytime, anywhere. As a member of OMNI Consortium, Richard A. Mautino Memorial Library patrons will have access to all of the titles in the database. Users may browse the OMNI website, check out with a valid Richard A. Mautino Memorial Library card, and download material.

Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees! This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free for patrons with their library card. The Libby app is a new, one-tap reading app for borrowing digital books and audiobooks from your library. Install the Libby app from your device's app store. Open the app and find your library, you can search by library name, city, or zip code. Browse the collection and borrow a title. When prompted, sign in. You'll need a valid library card to complete this step. Borrowed titles appear on your SHELF and download to the app automatically so you can read them when you're offline. From your SHELF you can: Tap START READING or START LISTENING to open a title. OR Tap the cover image, then SEND TO DEVICE to send a book to Kindle. For more help, visit
