E-books, digital audio books, and more are available free through your library!
Do you have an e-reader, tablet computer, home computer, or smart phone?
Would you like to get your library materials from home on an electronic device?
The Abbotsford Public Library is part of the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium’s digital library. If you go to dbooks.wplc.info and log in with your library card, you can get e-books and a whole lot more to use at home or on your mobile device. The link to the digital library is on the left sidebar of this page, under Online Databases. It is the one called Wisconsin’s Digital Library.
If you are searching our online catalog at catalog.wvls.org and you come across a book that has the location of WVLS e-books, it means the item exists online for you to download.
The black and white icon in the corner of the cover image tells you if it is an e-book or an audio book.
When the small icon is gray and white it means there are no copies currently available and you can get on a waiting list to be notified when it is available. If the icon is darker, that means that the item is available immediately so you can sign in and check it out.
If you know you want a digital book, you can go straight to dbooks.wplc.info and search the digital library directly.
The bottom of the main page has a link to helpful resources. There are how-to videos, information on library policies, and information about the applications you may need to get the digital content working on your device.
As always, feel free to call or stop by the library if you have questions about getting free e-books for your device!
