NAS Pensacola Library

Located between the Navy Yard Cafe and the Chapel, NASP Station Library can be found by looking for the yellow bookdrop outside. With over 20,000 materials available for checking out, you're sure to find something to read and enjoy. 

 

Signing up for a library account is quick and easy! Just bring your government ID to the circulation desk when you're ready to check out. Items are checked out for three weeks at a time, with no overdue fees, and easy renewal options.

 

Equipped with multiple computer areas, the library has what you need to browse the web or complete online training certificates. All of our computers come with CAC enabled keyboards to assist with checking work emails. Printing is free but limited to ten pages per day.

Did you know we have laptops available for check out? Ask a library staff member about borrowing one of our laptops while visiting the library.  

 

Sit down and relax while reading a book, a magazine or newspaper, or even work on a puzzle. Food and drink is allowed in the library so feel free to snack while you enjoy the space. Don't be afraid to make a little noise when you visit the library. You won't be "shushed" here while playing Monopoly or having a group study session. 

 

Check out the Makerspace area or dedicated children's room for a safe and comfortable environment for your little one to explore and play. 

 

If you prefer a quieter library experience, you'll love the Quiet Zone. This space is geared towards professional and educational development with study tables, individual carrels with power, and even dry erase boards to help you jot down notes. Tired of sitting? Look for our yellow top bar height tables perfect for stretching your legs while you work. 

 

A separate meeting room space is also available for scheduling. Ask a library staff member how to get on the schedule to use the room.

 

Watch the MWR Pensacola Facebook page for upcoming library events like the DoD Summer Reading Program, Banned Books week, and more!

 

OverDrive

The Navy Digital Library has been replaced with OverDrive. Please follow the steps below to get started. 

Welcome OverDrive patrons! Your records have been moved to our system, and OverDrive now authenticates through this site.

If this is your first time using the BiblioVation ILS, please sign in with your OverDrive email address. Your automatically generated password is either your last name, all lower case, or “update”, without the quotes.

For security reasons, please change this password as soon as you sign in:
1. In the menu in the upper right corner, select “Patron Dashboard”
2. Choose “My Personal Details”
3. Click “Change password”
4. Your old password is the password you signed in with
5. New password should be a minimum of eight characters. If you have both an OverDrive account and a base library account, both of which use the same primary email, please try signing in using your base library password. If you have not signed in before, the instructions above still apply to you.

Please note that our materials have also migrated within OverDrive; if you are not accessing your ebooks through the Department of Defense Library, MWR Location, please Add the Department of Defense Library. Please note also that the recommended app for accessing OverDrive is no longer OverDrive Media Console, but is Libby by OverDrive, available for mobile devices and tablets in your app store. This allows you to receive hold notices through your notifications and is the only way to access the Great Courses, Universal Class and ArtistWorks.

Desktop and laptop computer users can use libbyapp.com; instructions for signing in to both are below. Using the Libby app, or libbyapp.com, go to the main menu and select “Add a Library”. If you are a new user, you will instead be asked if you have a library card; say yes. Select “Search for library by name”, and search for “Department of Defense”, all spelled out. You will be given a choice between signing in with your location and signing up with your email address. Choose the Location option; the email address option is for public libraries and will not sign you in. You will see a drop-down list of Locations. Select “Navy MWR”.

Once you have proceeded to the next step, you will be prompted for your email and password. Use the same email you used in the old system, and the password you set up in BiblioVation. If successful, you will be prompted to name your library card. This step is optional. You may also be asked to choose whether to view items in Libby or to read them in Kindle; note that reading items in the Kindle app will require you to sign in with Amazon as well.

If you have questions or require assistance, please email nglp@navy.mil. -Your Navy Libraries
