Check out eBooks!
Did you know that you can borrow adult and children’s eBooks from the Urbana Free Library by downloading them from our website with your Urbana Free library card? It is easy and free and you get the item(s) for 2 weeks. It expires automatically, so there are never any overdue fees. We are trying to promote this great service with sliders in the Juvenile and First Chapter bookshelves to show you which titles we have bought e-copies of that are JUST for use of our patrons (there are many other titles available, just browse the site). So after stacking up on physical books be sure to check out our eBook selection as well - 24 hours a day!
And remember for our younger patrons, Tumblebooks is a free service you can also use with your Urbana Free Library card for getting picture books read to you. You pick the book you’d like and it will show the illustrations and read the words. It’s a great service that many of our patrons who have tried it, have LOVED! Ask if you have any questions about either of these great services. --Rachel V.
