WILBOR has a new look and now it is even easier to enjoy your favorite eBooks and eAudiobooks! A few of the highlights:
-An icon in the corner of a book cover will tell you whether the title is an eBook or an eAudiobook. If the icon is black, the title is available. If it is gray, the title has a wait list.
-Click on “Borrow” to choose your title.
-After you have logged into your account and accessed your “Bookshelf” you will be given the option to download your selection or return your title (once you download your selected format, you may only be able to return the title via the software). Clicking the “Download” button once will allow you to select your desired format.
-Overdrive Read is available for select titles, which allows you to open your eBook selection immediately and read from a browser on your computer or mobile device.

Like anyone living with a budget, the Davenport Library strives to get the most value out of every dollar we spend. With that goal in mind, we sought to find dual purposes for our existing equipment and materials and we feel we have succeeded admirably! After careful research and the hard work of various committees, we have found a supplemental purpose for our book sorters. We are pleased to announce that we are able to offer a new and unexpected service, one that is sure to delight your entire family – Dewey’s Delicious Doughnuts!®
Each book sorter at the Davenport Library has been retro-fitted with the Dynamic Multi-Tasking Do-It-All-izer™, a space-age gizmo that makes everything easier (if stickier) Our new enhanced sorters (now known as Book Checker-inners/Doughnut Makers Aggregator) represents a paradigm shift in library services; we are proud to be a leader in this new era of providing you the customer with the finest in information and fried dough!
Every day the Aggregators at each building will pull double duty, checking in library materials as they are returned and baking a variety of glazed doughnuts for your eating pleasure! (Cake doughnuts will be introduced later this year) Watch the progress of your made-to-order doughnut via monitor at Fairmount and Eastern, or through the windows at Main! Choose from a variety of glazes and icings (sprinkles are an additional cost)
Please remember – no food in the library!
All buildings will reopen on Wednesday December 26 for their regular business hours – Main and Fairmount Street will be open 9:30am to 5:30pm and Eastern Avenue will be open noon to 8pm.
Have a safe and festive Holiday!
