OUT OF STATE LIBRARY MEMBERSHIPS
Florida, Orange County Library System - $125/year
Great audiobook selection. Hoopla has 10 borrows per month.
Great selection and quick turnaround. I got the audiobook for Beach Read, Robyn Carr’s audio is mostly available for borrowing, Lynsay Sands (Argeneau), Nalini Singh (Psy-changeling).
Tip on signing up: $75/3 months, $100/6 months or $125/year Note: When applying, select the check box next to "Out of Country" to enter in your address. They may ask a question on the form about what county OCLS is in to stop spammers. The answer is "Orange" since OCLS stands for Orange County Library System.
Verdict: This one is worth $125 based on the ample selection, access to Hoopla.
Brooklyn Public Library - $50 a year
Great romance selection, lot’s of ebooks and audiobooks. No Hoopla.
Books available: new releases, Nalini Singh Psy-changeling series. The wait time is a few weeks.
Verdict: if you like romance kindle books then this is a good price for great selection. It is unfortunate, they don’t have Hoopla. They do have a Cloud Library for additional book selection.
Houston Public Library - $40 a year
10 Borrows for Hoopla.
Verdict: I just joined but based on the selection they have Nalini Singh, some Lynsay Sands (no Argeneau), Robyn Carr Virgin River (hold). I am unsure if this one is worthwhile. I will track where I am getting the books and give you an update in a few weeks.
Fairfax County Public Library - $27 a year
Verdict: This library has a good Overdrive but not as comprehensive as Brooklyn and Orange County.
Queens Public Library - $50 a year.
The selection is mediocre. They have little romance. The wait time is long for audiobooks and ebooks. Not worth $50 a year.
Verdict: SKIP THIS ONE!
