Get carded at any of our ten Stark Library locations, on the bookmobile, or sign up on our website, and you will enjoy our lesser-known library card perk – streaming movies, music, audio books, and more for FREE.
It is no secret that inflation is hitting many families hard, and the cost of Netflix, Hulu, Audible, and other streaming services can add up to big bucks. In April of 2022, a Nielsen survey found that most video-streaming households spend 20 to 30 dollars per month…with 15 percent paying more than 50 dollars every month. Over a year that translates to anywhere from 338 to more than 600 dollars. Think of how many grocery trips that is! With your Stark Library card, you can access streaming services to entertain without the financial pain (extra milk, butter and eggs included).
Binge a TV series, indulge in an Academy Award-winning movie, or hear your book’s favorite character speak to you through library apps that work wherever you happen to be. Kanopy allows you to stream quality, thoughtful entertainment, such as documentaries, classic cinema, and independent films; Hoopla provides movies, music, popular TV series and more; and Libby has e-books, audiobooks, and even full-color graphic novels. You can read summaries and reviews to find exactly what fits the mood or occasion. There is truly something for everyone.
In addition, if you are a fan of magazines, but prefer to read them for free without leaving home, you can digitally access everything from The New Yorker to Esquire, and even Quilter’s World! If you think we don’t have it, you may be in for a pleasant surprise.
Of course, we are always happy to see you checking out materials, accessing computers, and enjoying the many programs and services in-person at the library. However, remember that we can also provide a lot to you from your couch, car, or walking trail. Your library card is the portal to more than half a million eBooks, shows, movies, and more. Access these fantastic resources on any device at any time, anywhere for FREE. All it takes is a trip to one of our ten locations.
You can also sign for an eCard on our website.
Please believe us, this time the unbelievable offer is actually real. Get carded and open a new world of digital entertainment, reading, and learning - anywhere, any time with any device!
