Welcome to our Axis360 Digital Media Library


Logging in with your new card:
If you updated your old library card and have an existing Axis 360 account, you will have to log out of the Axis 360 app and then log back in using your new card number. If you do not do this, you will receive all sorts of errors and you won’t be able to access your books. If the app won’t allow you to log out, uninstall the app and then reinstall. If you have any problems with the apps, contact kharvey@jgrls.org


Checking out eBooks is now easier than ever before using free e-reading apps that allow access to eBooks and/or electronic media on Windows, iOS, and Android computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and eReaders. (You will need a Blio or AxisReader account before checking out books.)

Library cardholders can search for and check out free eBooks through the JGRLS public access catalog (PAC) or by going directly to the JGRLS Axis 360 Digital Media Library... Search for ebooks in the Axis360 catalog...

Download the Blio App - eReader

blio app

Available since June 2011, this app is better able to present content rich/highly illustrated titles (cookbooks, children’s books, etc.).

In Blio “books come to life” through crystal clear sound and color images. If you borrow a Blio formatted title in Axis 360, you will have to open it in Blio…but Blio CAN be installed on virtually any Android or iOS device.
