The West Bend Library has expanded its digital collection with the addition of OverDrive periodicals. This new service features 87 popular digital magazines Рincluding ESPN the Magazine, Fine Cooking, Taste of Home, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Smithsonian, Yoga Journal, and many more!

OverDrive is the same digital library website where you can currently borrow eBooks, digital audiobooks and streaming video. Just log in to OverDrive using your valid library card number and PIN to browse and read titles in this new collection. The digital magazines do require a NOOK tablet device, or the free NOOK Reading App available for smartphones and tablets.

TRIO UPDATE: Saying Goodbye to Jefferson County

goodbyeThe time has come. As of August 29, 2015, we will no longer be able to place holds on items owned by Jefferson County libraries. That means all of the great materials we would get from places like Fort Atkinson, Watertown, Lake Mills, and Jefferson will not be available.

They have been great partners with us since 2007, allowing us access to a rich collection of non-fiction books, graphic novels, and movies that most other libraries do not have. Jefferson County will be joining Waukesha County in a new library system (name to be determined). We will continue to work with Dodge County in the trio catalog.
