Personalized Reading List
Tell us about a few of your most (and least) favorite books, and we'll pick a few more we think you might like. That's all there is to it.
A seed exchange is a place where you can "check out" seeds and bring back new seeds from your harvest!
Video Game Collection
Let the Library's Video Game Collection help you try out new games or quickly revisit old favorites from childhood. Check out games for PS2, PS3, PS4, DS and 3DS, Xbox One, Wii and WiiU, and Switch!
VOX Books are printed books that provide full professional audio narration using an audio reader attached to the book. The VOX collection includes picture books, non-fiction picture books, and easy to read titles. Studies have shown that VOX Books users improve their reading comprehension by 75% and improve their reading accuracy by over 50%. Thank you to the Friends of The Urbana Free Library for providing the funding to launch this collection!
Most magazines are located on the first floor in the southeast reading room. We generally keep one year of back issues for monthly publications, three years for quarterlies, and three months for those that are published weekly.
The Library's music collection is notable for both its breadth and depth. From the latest chart-topper to historic recordings of Paraguayan flute music, we’ve got it covered. Baroque to avant-garde, opera to rap, ragtime to modern jazz, classic to forgotten; a musical extravaganza awaits! In addition the Library now provides free music streaming / downloading of thousands of albums in all genres with Hoopla.
