Philadelphia Free Library

I see that quite a few people have obtained a non-resident library card from the Philadelphia Free Library. Can you tell me how long it took to get a response from them? I mailed my application and payment yesterday. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Either their website or application form stated 5-10 business days from receipt of application.

I sent mine late last week and have not yet received a response. I believe one person stated they received an email providing their card number and said the physical card was in the mail.

I'm hoping early to middle next week I should have some information.

Sometimes I remember seeing responses but don't remember who said it.

What was the time between your application being sent and the arrival of the email?

I mailed an application for a library card to The Free Library of Philadelphia last month on the 8th. On the 17th, I received an email with the card number so I could begin using their online resources. I received the library card in the mail on the 26th.

Everything went through smoothly and quickly. It's a great library.

Glad I saw this thread-I filled out an application. With the sony 900 we can download the Epub and the pdf books, correct?

Edit: can calibre change the format from that Overdrive or whatever they are using?

Sony's can read ePub and PDF from public libraries.

Calibre can only change format if you remove the DRM first. Do a search for ineptepub and ineptpdf.

I mailed my application and check from Hawaii last week Monday and received my card number by email this week Tuesday (8 days). As a bonus, they're returning my $15 check since I'm over 65! I thought the over-65 break was only for PA residents, but apparently not. What a deal — love it!

No. The jetbook lite cannot read DRM ePUb and DRM PDF files.
