Dear Friends,

We are thinking of you during these challenging times.

Below are a few of the many online resources available through the library as we all spend time at home.

May you all stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

If you're missing going to the library, there's still a way to be able to enjoy choosing new (or favorite) books, all from the comfort of your own home! 

A.K. Smiley Public Library’s eLibrary provides both
eBooks and eAudio books,
available to library cardholders for download to their devices through OverDrive. 
All you need is your library card to access this free service.

Visit the eLibrary section of the library's website at 
and click on eBooks-OverDrive (as shown left).

You’ll find a lot of options available in both fiction and nonfiction!
More of a magazine reader? The library has got you covered, too! Flipster, a digital magazine service has 18 titles for adults and children. Titles include People, Good Housekeeping, Bon Appetit, Ranger Rick Jr., and Girls' World, just to name a few! Current and past issues are accessible.
