In the midst of the current "safer at home" conditions, we want to make sure you can access your library ebook collection from your own home!

Gilmer Public Library offers an online database of eBooks and Audiobooks through WV READS, which is available on Overdrive, or Libby (by Overdrive). Both apps are free to download and access via mobile and/or desktop devices.

To use Overdrive and Libby, you must have a PIN number connected to your library account. This usually is 4 to 6 characters, though 4 numbers is the most popular PIN option.

If you do not remember your PIN number, are signing in for the first time, or if you do remember your PIN number, but still cannot sign in, your library account may be expired. Please call in, as we are the only way to keep your account up-to-date for in-house and online features. Please have your library card number handy when you call 304-462-5620. We will ask:

  • What is your current address?
  • What is the best phone number to reach you at?
  • Do you use an email address, and would you prefer us to update you on overdue items at that email address?
  • Other questions may need to be asked in order to update your account.
