The Gioconda and Joseph King Library

In response to the COVID-19 virus, The King Library is now closed through the remainder of the season.
Please do not return your materials to the King Library book drop unless you are leaving the area. Due dates for any materials from the King Library will extend until COVID-19 is resolved. Thank you.

In the meantime, we wanted to share some great resources you can access right from the comfort of your own home.

Overdrive/Libby App – The Libby App can be downloaded on your tablet or smartphone from your device’s App store. All you need is your 7-digit Library Card number to access a collection of eBooks and Audiobooks. When setting up the app it will ask you for the zip code of your library (33480) and you’ll see us listed under Southeast Library Association – Society of the Four Arts King Library. Currently, OverDrive has made most eBooks and Audiobooks in the system available for use simultaneously.

Internet Archive – The Internet Archive has also made available many books published over the past century for checkout online. All you need to do is create a free account at archive.org/details/books. There are currently 4.3 Million items available for check out on that platform. Please note this service is independent of the King Library.

National Film Board of Canada – The NFB has made available over 4,000 films in English and French available for streaming without the need to sign up for an account. You can search that catalog of films at www.nfb.ca/films. All of these links are also available from the King Library catalog at fourarts.bywatersolutions.com.

Should you need assistance with any of these great resources, please do not hesitate to contact us via email: kinglibrary@fourarts.org. We are still here to serve you.

The Society of the Four Arts Gioconda and Joseph King Library serves the Town of Palm Beach, but is open to library aficionados from all over. Borrowing privileges are available with a modest annual membership fee.
