New Year, New Ways to Read

Did you know that you have access to over 50,000 eBooks and eAudiobooks? OverDrive is our online collection of digital content that you can access on your computer, phone, tablet, or portable eReader. If you haven't checked out an eBook before, now is the time to get started. We share our collection with other Ontario public libraries, but also have a collection only available to Wellington County Library patrons. Look for the Advantage logo to see titles with shorter wait times.

Staff are happy to help, and can help troubleshoot any problems you might have.  We are hosting a number of eBook workshops and drop in sessions in January to help get you started:
