If you are unfamiliar with Libby, you can find instructions for downloading the app and setting up your account here. The app is free to download, but you will need your Bedford Public Library card number to sign in.  If you are using a computer's web browser, you may use libbyapp.com to access Great Courses (You must login with your Bedford Public Library card to see the Extras).
