OAR Launches a Library for the Autism Community

OAR’s commitment to providing free resources to information for the autism community has just expanded with our new online lending library through Libby, by OverDrive. The library contains a wide range of autism-related titles for autistic individuals, parents, and professionals. You can also access many of OAR’s titles, including A Guide to Safety, A Guide for Transition to Adulthood, A Parent’s Guide to Research, and connect them directly to your e-reader. 

In our library, you’ll discover carefully curated lists of 80+ titles on important autism-related topics and for different members of the autism community. Whether you’re looking to learn more about autism, start a book club with others in the autism community, or looking for your next great read, this online lending library is for you.

Get Started

The Libby app allows you to borrow eBooks and audiobooks for free from our online collection. You can even send and read your borrowed eBooks on your Kindle e-reader (U.S. only). The system is easy to use. The first step is to set up an account: 

  1. Access OAR’s Libby Library via OAR’s website or by downloading the Libby app. 
  2. To access the library, you must have an OAR account. If you don’t already have one, it’s easy to create an account. Use the same email address that is connected to your OAR account to log in to OAR’s lending library. 
  3. You may see the login instructions asking you for your library card. In this case, your library card is your email.

Thank you to OAR staff and community members for submitting requests for titles. We’ve taken your suggestions into consideration while curating our initial library collection and plan to add more titles in the future.  You can use the Notify Me feature in the Libby app to be notified when a title you’re interested in has been added to our library.
