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.

The E-Book!
The Next Generation in Reading!

I love to read and I love books! I’m sure you do too! Did you know you can borrow E-Books at the Library?
Yes, You Can!


Do you own a Kindle, Nook or Tablet? If you do, we can help you get set up to start reading on your device! How wonderful is that!

Most people don’t know that you can borrow e-books from the library. Tell your friends and family! Get out the megaphone and shout, call someone, post it on social media and get the word out there! We have E-Books!!! Yes, we do! How exciting is that? I am always looking for a good book to read. Now I can search through all the books to find that perfect on to borrow!

Borrowing an E-Book from the Library is just like walking into the library, searching for a book, and taking it home for a little bit, except you can do it all from your device, at home, and in comfy P.J.’s! Oh yes! You don’t have to leave the house to borrow a book, but you are always more than welcome to come to the library and enjoy holding a book in your hands and enjoying how peaceful it is at anytime! We love our library, come visit us anytime!

The winter is coming soon and sometimes we just want to cozy up on the couch with a blanket, a cup of coffee and a really good book! Now is a great time to borrow both a Book and E-Book!

So now that you know that we offer E-Books to borrow, are you ready to learn about it and start enjoying these books? Come into the library and ask one of our wonderful ladies at the desk for help and they will get you started! Bring your library card when you come so they can help you better!

Are you ready to start your next adventure?

We have children E-Books too!

*And don’t forget, a Book will never have a dying battery! Come in and borrow some books too!

International Sensation : Behind Closed Doors


Looking for something exciting to read?

This is a hair raising debut, both unsettling and addictive.

A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night.Appearances can be deceiving… Terror is contagious…

and impending peril creates a ticking clock

that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale

toward it’s grisly,  gratifying conclusion

( Publishers Weekly )

This is one book you will want to grab at the Library.  It will leave you breathless.
