It’s Read an eBook Day!

September 18 is Read an eBook Day! Did you know the library has access to thousands of eBooks you can check out to your device, all free with your Winfield Library card?

There are two ways to access our eBooks and eAudiobooks. But before you do, you have to set up a password through the library’s online catalog. Just log in with your library card number and you will be prompted to create your own password. Once your password is set up, you can use our eBook service.

Your first option: go to the eMediaLibrary website and sign in. Click on the menu and go to New Teen Additions to see the great new teen books we’ve added to the collection. You can download to your device or place checked out items on hold.

Your second option: download our app! It’s called Libby, and it accesses your eMediaLibrary account quickly and easily.

Movies In Development!

We all know that TONS of teen books get optioned for movie development and never end up being made. But! Two movies have made it past the casting stage and are well on their way to the big screen! Be sure to read and fall in love with the books now so you can properly judge the movies when they come out. 😆

The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
After witnessing her friend’s death at the hands of a police officer, Starr Carter’s life is complicated when the police and a local drug lord try to intimidate her in an effort to learn what happened the night Kahlil died. Amandla Stenberg will play Starr in the movie.
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Sixteen-year-old, not-so-openly-gay Simon Spier is blackmailed into playing wingman for his classmate or else his sexual identity–and that of his pen pal–will be revealed. Nick Robinson will play Simon in the movie.

New Audiobooks

Perfect for an end-of-summer-break road trip! Some of these new teen audiobooks are on CD and some are on Playaway, which are small media players pre-loaded with an entire audio book. Check these out!


Always and forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han
While helping plan her father’s wedding, senior Lara Jean struggles with choosing a college and questions how graduation is going to change her relationship with her boyfriend Peter.

Bang by Barry Lyga
Sebastian Cody did something horrible, something no one, not even Sebastian himself, can forgive. At the age of four, he accidentally shot and killed his infant sister with his father’s gun. Now, ten years later, Sebastian can’t live with the guilt. It took a gun to get him into this. Now he needs a gun to get out.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Scarlett’s father has arranged a marriage for her, and Scarlett thinks her dreams of seeing Caraval, the far-away, once-a-year performance where the audience participates in the show, are over. But this year, her invitation finally arrives. Only, as soon as they arrive, Scarlett’s sister Tella is kidnapped by Caraval’s mastermind, and she must be found or disappear forever.
Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner
Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. But now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident.
