E-books for you!!

We recently bought a great batch of kids’ e-books that you can check out through the 3M link on our website. You can download these titles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and just need to enter your Urbana library card number to download them. You keep them for 2 weeks and they automatically delete themselves from your device. This means no overdue fees ever! There are picture books, easy to read titles, first chapter books and regular chapter books. Read more about E-books for you!!
