We're working hard to get you a variety of content

We'd like to give a big thank you to all the companies that are making their content available for us to share with you!

Just Added!

Who's hiding in your family tree? During this time while the library has to be closed, Ancestry. com is making their site available from home for everyone to use! Have fun looking up your family tree.

Book Groups - Having trouble getting enough copies? Overdrive Digital Books can help. Please contact Corinn, our director, to help facilitate this for your group. Contact her at ask@westnewburylibrary.org .

What's new in April books? The BookPage that you pick up in the library can now be read online to stay on top of what's coming out and get on the list.

What do you want to be? Check out Ferguson's Career Guidance Center . How about answers for all those questions the kids are asking? The Kids Alamanacs are a great place to start! Dig into a little science or some streaming videos? Check out Infobase for all this and more. They have made a collection of their databases available to you while the library is closed.

Sign up for Wowbrary . You'll receive a weekly email newsletter showcasing what's new at the West Newbury Library. Right now the content is the newest eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines, but once the library is open again it will have our newest items. You can even customize it to just the genres you want.

Many of these require your 14-digit library card number and your PIN (usually last four digits of your phone number). If you need some guidance using any of these resources, please email us: ask@westnewburylibrary.org
Some more fun things to try

Let's build a fort! Or a castle or a space ship or whatever you imagine. Inside or Outside. Get creative - what things around the house or yard can you use? Take a pic and share your space with us on Facebook or email your pic to Kristen, our teen librarian , and we'll share it on our website.

You can find some great fort stories on Hoopla to get you in the mood.

Online Storytimes - Children's books read aloud by celebrities and even astronauts from space. Try Storyline Online for celebrity picks. At Story Time from Space , astronauts read and demonstrate aboard the International Space Station.

We know many of our patrons love a good mystery. Goodreads lists the 100 Most Popular Mysteries and Thrillers . The great thing is these books are more available than the current releases. Maybe you'll find a new author to follow.
