The Palace Project

We are pleased to announce the statewide roll out of the Palace Project, a new digital library service by and for libraries that offers access to free ebooks and audiobooks in one easy-to-use app. Through the Palace app, library users have access to over 20,000 items curated by the Digital Public Library of America and the New Jersey State Library. Users can access the Palace app on their preferred mobile device or tablet via download from the Apple or Google Play stores. All you need is your library card!

The process for signing up is completely self-contained within the Palace app, and will require only an email address and authentication through geolocation (anywhere in NJ).  For more detailed instructions from Palace, click here.
