Law4AZ Legal Resources

Law4AZ Legal Resources

Mustang Library now has a new collection of current consumer legal reference materials. The reference collection covers many legal topics, including small business law, resolving landlord/tenant disputes, and estate planning. Materials are not available for check-out and only available for in-house use at Mustang Library.

This program is made possible thanks to a grant from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Sciences.



Greater Phoenix Digital Library

Greater Phoenix Digital Library

Time to make the switch! The Greater Phoenix Digital Library ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and streaming films are a great way to access your library from home. The legacy app Overdrive is being phased out and Libby is now the app to use. Easy to install on iOS and Android devices, there are also options like Read in Browser on desktop computers or use Kindle format ebooks on your Kindle Fire. There are a lot of ways to get ebooks, audiobooks, and magazines on your mobile device, desktop computer, or laptop.

Learn more by going to: Help.overdrive.com/en-us/home.htm or reach out to knowledgeable staff by using our Ask-a-Librarian service.
