(Of course our Library is #1 – We love it and it’s just beautiful)

 

There are so many lovely libraries around the US! It’s hard to narrow it down! Did you visit a library that wasn’t on our list but should have been? Let us know and post some photos too! We would love to see where you have been! Every library is different! They all have their own stories to tell and not just in books! Each building tells a story! Every library has books, but not all books are the same.

We’ve given you the list of beautiful libraries around the US, now it’s up to you to find out why we chose those libraries! Go visit, refer a friend, or do some research! The mystery is up to you to solve! Enjoy!

 

I love when I visit a library, I find a comfy spot to nestle in for a bit and read a good book! Then when I’m ready, I check out and borrow the book. It’s nice to find a nice spot to relax, enjoy the peace and a good book! Sure, we live at the beach and can do the same thing, but there is nothing like being surrounded by history and books. We also have a garden off to side that you can enjoy and read a good book! Come visit The Webb Library, wonder around and listen! No really…listen! It’s quiet and a good book is calling your name or was that the ghost?!

NCKids New App on Overdrive

NCkids.overdrive.comth

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 nckids.overdrive.com 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.

E-Book

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!

e-books

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!
