Get your kids immersed in FREE eBooks this spring and summer!

Did you know that you can easily borrow and enjoy free eBooks, audiobooks, and more from your library or school’s digital collection? It’s true!

All you need to get started is an internet connection and a library card or student ID, then download one of the free apps such as OverDrive, to give you access to your library’s collection.

Follow these three simple steps:

1.) Find & open your library or school’s digital collection

Use one of the following apps or sites to get started:

  • The new Libby app (recommended for public library users on Android, iOS, or Windows 10)
  • The original OverDrive app (for all other library or school users on Android, Chromebooks, iOS, Fire tablets, or Windows 8/10)
  • OverDrive.com (for any user on a Windows or Mac computer)

2.) Borrow

Borrow a title from your library or school’s digital collection. You’ll need a valid library card or student ID to complete this step.


3.) Enjoy!

You can enjoy many titles immediately online, download them for offline use, or send borrowed eBooks to a Kindle device (U.S. libraries only) for the duration of your lending period. You can also transfer titles from your computer to compatible eReaders or MP3 players. And the best part – no late fees. Titles are automatically returned on their due date!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
