WHAT'S AVAILABLE:

OVERDRIVE:
Patrons can check out audiobooks, eBooks and more for your computer and smart devices. Checking out is a free service of the Wilson Public Library for local users and requires your library card number and a library-specific password. Wilson Public Library is part of a state-wide consortium as well as having our own titles available through Overdrive Advantage.  There may be wait times as these titles are one-user only and we share the database with many other Nebraska libraries, although we do own some of our own titles within the database as well. There is a large selection of children, youth, and adult titles in both e-book and audiobook format.  

Please ask the front desk for the password, but be prepared to give staff your name and library card number for verification. Our phone number is 784-2019. Check the Overdrive Device Resource Center for more compatibility information.  A free app for Overdrive is available and we have instructional sheets at the front desk to guide you through how to use or click here to Take a tour to learn how to Download Digital Books and More!

RBdigital eAudiobooks:  
Patrons who have a library card from Wilson Public Library can check out audiobooks by accessing Rbdigital eAudiobooks, formerly OneClickdigital. There are a variety of youth and adult titles beyond what Overdrive provides for your computer and smart devices. There is NEVER a wait time because these titles are multi-use.  

Checking out is a free service of the Wilson Public Library for local users and, unlike Overdrive, you create your own free account. However, you must know your library card number as well as the special format for entering it in order to create that account.  The front desk can help you with this format, but be prepared to give staff your name and library card number for verification.  With this site, you are responsible for knowing your username and password; unfortunately staff will not know that information once the account is running.  A free app for RBdigital is available.

RBdigital Magazines:
Patrons who have a library card from Wilson Public Library can check out over 150 e-magazines by accessing RBdigital Magazines, formerly Zinio, on your computer and smart devices. There is NEVER a wait time because these titles are multi-use.  

Checking out is a free service of the Wilson Public Library for local users and, unlike Overdrive, you create your own free account. However, you must know your library card number as well as the special format for entering it in order to create that account.  The front desk can help you with this format, but be prepared to give staff your name and library card number for verification.  With this site, you are responsible for knowing your username and password; unfortunately staff will not know that information once the account is running.  A free app for RBdigital Magazines is available.

CHILTON:
Patrons who have a library card from Wilson Public Library can access Chilton Library through Gale Cengage on your computer and smart devices. Get the detailed information you need to tackle vehicle maintenance and repairs. Some of Chilton Library's more popular features include: maintenance and specification tables that provide the unique data you need for each specific vehicle; step-by-step service and repair procedures and a labor estimating tool to help determine your next move; vacuum diagrams to simplify troubleshooting; wiring diagrams to help explain system operation; close-up photographs and illustrations for visual support; ASE test prep quizzes for the most popular certification exams; and a print button allowing to print only what is needed.

Using this datatbase is a free service of the Wilson Public Library for local users, but you must have a library card and call the library (or stop by the front desk) to verify your account and receive the password.
