Digital Library

The Fort Worth Public Library no longer subscribes to the Freegal music service. After carefully evaluating its costs in light of continuing low use, we decided not to renew the subscription when it expired July 12, 2019. We are evaluating other options for digital music. In the meantime, we have a large collection of music CDs and are always happy to receive recommendations for titles we do not have.


eBooks • Digital Audiobooks • Video

OverDrive offers a wide selection of the most popular authors for adults and children in audiobook and eBook formats, plus streaming video. (Fort Worth Residents only)



The library has dozens of online databases to assist you with homework, legal help, language learning, medical information, crafting, auto repair, genealogy, business and investments, computer skills, magazines and more.
