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 

No Hoopla 

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!
