NCKids New App on Overdrive


A grant from the North Carolina state legislature gives library patrons a new, free alternative for accessing children’s electronic books and other materials. These materials are intended for children from preschool age to fourth grade.

Here’s how it works: Go to and log in using your Webb Library card number. You’ll then be able to browse a collection of more than 3,700 books, audiobooks and streaming videos. These electronic books can be read using an app called OverDrive that’s available for smartphones, tablets, and computers.

This new program for borrowing electronic children’s materials is in addition to the Webb Library’s access to electronic books, audiobooks and videos available for all ages.

If you have trouble accessing these materials or want further information you can stop by or telephone the Webb Library Library for assistance.

New Book for 10/20/12

San Miguel  by T. C. Boyle


On a tiny, desolate, windswept island off the coast of Southern California, two families, one in the 1880s and one in the 1930s, come to start new lives and pursue dreams of self-reliance and freedom. Their extraordinary stories, full of struggle and hope, are the subject of T. C. Boyle’s haunting new novel.

Thirty-eight-year-old Marantha Waters arrives on San Miguel on New Year’s Day 1888 to restore her failing health.  Joined by her husband, a stubborn, driven Civil War veteran who will take over the operation of the sheep ranch on the island, Marantha strives  to persevere in the face of the hardships, some anticipated and some not, of living in such brutal isolation. Two years later their adopted teenage daughter, Edith, an aspiring actress, will exploit every opportunity to escape the captivity her father has imposed on her.  Time closes in on them all and as the new century approaches, the ranch stands untenanted. And then in March 1930, Elise Lester, a librarian from New York City, settles on San Miguel with her husband, Herbie, a World War I veteran full of manic energy.  As the years go on they find a measure of fulfillment and serenity; Elise gives birth to two daughters, and the family even achieves a celebrity of sorts. But will the peace and beauty of the island see them through the impending war as it had seen them through the Depression?
