The Montgomery County Public Libraries, better known as MCPL, strives to be a home for information and ideas that strengthen our community. While they have thousands of ebooks for download, patrons can also find online offerings ranging from streaming TV to language classes. Best of all, everything our Germantown library provides is absolutely free. Get started today to check out what you can enjoy from our Germantown apartments for rent.

HeritageQuest Online 

Dive deep into your family history with HeritageQuest Online. It features millions of documents dating back to the 1700s. You’ll find Revolutionary War Records, U.S. Federal Censuses, local history books, and so much more. Be sure to log in through the library’s website before beginning your research. In episode 42 of the MCPL podcast, called Library Matters, genealogy enthusiasts Carol Reddan and Adrienne Miles Holderbaum discuss their passion for genealogy and available resources at the library. 

Rosetta Stone 

Featuring courses in more than 30 languages, Rosetta Stone ensures its students thrive in real-world conversations. It’s trusted by major corporations such as TripAdvisor and Calvin Klein. Users can learn at their own pace and practice pronunciation using a patented speech recognition engine. Languages include Italian, German, and Spanish. You can log in through the library to begin learning today. 

Acorn TV

Watch popular television shows from around the world with Acorn TV. This little-known streaming service offers dozens of exciting choices. For a great show you may not have heard of, we recommend Hidden. Filmed in Snowdonia, Wales, it follows DI Cadi John, who returns home to care for her sick father. When someone finds a body in the river, she must use her skills to solve a string of disappearances.

Our Germantown library offers dozens of online resources to keep you engaged for hours.
