If you have an Amagansett Library Card, you have access to thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks with the Libby app! Once your Libby account is set up, you can read or listen to books on any smartphone or tablet- you can even set it up to send books right to your Kindle. 

Follow these steps to get started. If you get stuck, just visit the library and we can get you through the initial set-up. After that, it’s a breeze!
