Fans of audiobooks and e-books can use their Syracuse Public Library cards to access numerous titles via Hoopla and the OverDrive/Libby. Hoopla, in particular, has created a special collection, which spotlights Black voices and history.

During February, adults are also invited to join the adult book club for its discussions of “March: Book One” by John Lewis. A graphic novel, “March” is an autobiographical look at the civil rights movement, told through the perspective of civil rights leader and US Congressman John Lewis.
