Our Virtual Library goes beyond programming to include an expanded digital colleciton.  Visit our onine library of downloadable books, movies, music, & audiobooks and explore all we have to offer.  There are many resources available to you.  Our most popular is the Wisconsin Digital Libary powered by Overdrive.  To use this resource, you will need your library card and pin number.  Your pin number is usually the last four digits of the phone number you gave us when you registered for a card.  To use this resource on your smart devices (phone, tablet, e-reader) simply go to your app store and download either the Libby app or the Overdrive app.  Libby works well with most newer devices and is very user friendly.  Libby cannot be used to access streaming movies and as of now cannot be used with Kindlle fire.  To stream movies or to enjoy the Wisconsin Digital  Library on older devices or Kindle fire download the Overdrive app.  We have several tutorials on how to use Libby, Overdrive, and getting a temporary library card on our new YouTube Channel

hoopla

New to us....Hoopla!!!  The library now has another exciting resource for downloading books, movies, music, and audio  books, thanks to a generous donation by the Francis R. & Ruth E. Oberreich Foundation of $1,000. The best thing about Hoopla is that there are never any holds. All titles are available, all the time, regardless of whether other library users have checked out the material. The robust Hoopla collection provides a wonderful compliment to the library’s current digital offerings through Overdrive and Libby. Hoopla works with most tablets, computers and smart phones. Many of Hoopla movies can also be streamed through Roku as well. Patrons will be able to check out 7 items a month and will need their library card number and pin number (usuallly the last four digits of your phone number) to get started.  Click Here to start downloading.
