Have you heard of KY Unbound? It is an electronic database that is available to you for free as a McCracken County Library cardholder. Downloads include music, audiobooks, e-books, and movies.
To download these items you will need the following:

- a computer or device (such as a smartphone or mp3 player) that meets the system requirements for the particular file
- and the KY Unbound free software that you must download to your device.
*If you do not have Internet access at home, we offer 2 download stations available on the 1st floor and 2nd floor of the library.

- Click here to view the borrowing policies, such as how many items you can check out at a time and how long you can keep them.
KY Unbound is great not only for those looking for more audio and electronic resources, but also for certain items that may not be available in another format. An example is the popular YA series The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith which is not currently available in a physical audiobook format for the library to purchase; it is only available to download and KY Unbound has it!
If you have more questions concerning the downloadable media available, please feel free to ask us on your next trip to the library or give us a call at 270-442.2510 at extensions 122, 140 or 150.
