Digital Resources

Read, listen, and watch from your phone, computer, or tablet with our digital library, open 24/7! Your library card gives you access to thousands of e-books, digital audiobooks, music albums, movies, and more.

Before you get started

To enjoy digital content from the library, you'll need to have a valid Wells Branch Community Library card in good standing—that means no overdue items, and no fines more than $5. If your account isn't currently in good standing, visit the library or give us a call at 512-989-3188 so a staff member can assist you.

To log in to most of our digital services, you'll need two bits of information handy:

  • Your Wells Branch Community Library card number
    This is the five-digit number on the back of your library card, right under the barcode.
  • Your library PIN or secure password:
    By default, your PIN is the 10-digit telephone number you gave the library when you signed up for your account, with no dashes or spaces. If you've created a secure password on our catalog page, you'll use that instead.

Check out our most popular digital services below, or visit the Electronic Resources section of our catalog page to see everything available to you.
