10 Things You Might Not Know About the Library

  1. We have TV series on DVD.  Come in and check out Glee, Modern Family, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Vampire Diaries, The Office and more.
  2. You can take practice tests for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, AP Exams and more using our Testing and Education Reference Center.  You can also see in-depth information about college programs.  Just click here to access the Testing Center.  Your user ID is your Winfield Library card number.  

  3. We’ve got a Flickr photostream with pictures from library events.  Check it out at

  4. If you forget your library card, but you have your school photo ID with your name on it, you may still check out library materials. 

  5. Our all ages chess club meets once a month.  The next meeting is Saturday, December 11 at 10:00 a.m.  The club meets in our Youth Services department, but adults, teens, and kids are all welcome to join. 

  6. If you need to do research for a school project, click here to access Encyclopedia Britannica to get biographical information, timelines, atlases, country comparisons and for general research.  You can even make your own custom charts to compare information.  Your password is your library card number. 

  7. Back issues of magazines may be checked out for two weeks.  Check out the teen magazines, like Alternative Press, Shonen Jump, Mad Magazine, Teen Voices, Seventeen, Game Informer and more. 

  8. If you need a book but we don’t have it, you can request an interlibrary loan and we’ll get it for you from another library.  Just ask for a form at the front desk. 

  9. If you have to write a paper about a social issue, like abortion, cloning, global warming, or another controversial issue, SIRS Knowledge Source is perfect for you.  A quick call to the library will get you the password information if you have a Winfield Library card. 

  10. We have a suggestion box in the teen area of the library.  Drop in a card with the names of books you want me to buy, ideas for library programs, or general comments.  If you want a personal response, put your name and number or email on the card.  Anonymous suggestions are welcome, too!
