We’ve added two new digital resources to our offerings: Gale Legal Forms and Chilton Library. Your Library barcode number gives you access to these services at home! These resources can also be accessed in-house at all of our branches, via one of our public computers or using your own device connected to our Wi-Fi.
We’ve updated our digital magazines. We now have the RBdigital Magazine Value Collection, which gives you access to over 50 digital magazines. Note: If you’ve used our digital magazines in the past, you’ll have to create a new account.
Finally, this is a reminder that we have two options for your eBook and eAudioBook needs: Cloud Library and OverDrive. If one doesn’t have what you’re looking for, the other one might. Can’t find an eBook or eAudioBook you’re looking for? Let us know and we’ll work on fulfilling your request.
All of these resources (and more!) are available on our website under the Digital Resources link at the top of the page.
