Library offers Ebooks to patrons
Special to Long Beach Breeze
The Long Beach Public Library is now offering Ebooks through Axis360. Those wishing to explore Ebooks must have a library card with Long Beach Public Library to create an account.
Currently, the database includes a robust choice of books from the Highlights for Kids series (early readers), but they expect to add titles for juvenile, young adult, and adult soon. Patrons can create and personalize their account by visiting the Long Beach Public Library’s website (http://longbeach.lib.ms.us) and selecting “Axis360.” Once a user selects that button, the following instructions apply:
TO CREATE ACCOUNT
Click on LOGIN at top right.
Enter your Long Beach Public Library card where it says LIBRARY CARD ID.
Example = p 1234
Enter your phone number where it says PIN. If your area code does not begin with 228, you will need to enter the area code as well.
Example = 123-4567
Click on LOGIN.
TO PERSONALIZE YOUR ACCOUNT
Click once on avatar next to Welcome.
Click on VIEW SETTINGS.
A drop-down box will drop down, and you can add the following items. Please, make note of our suggestions.
