Donate Your Old Books!


If you have books you have to part with, donate them to the library book sale! From now through March 10, we’ll take your old books for our book sale – just drop them off at the library. Make room for new stuff, and then come to the sale in March to buy. Someone else’s donation could be your treasure!

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.

Download Libby here:


Get out there and start downloading! Celebrate Read an eBook Day everyday!
