Niobrara County News

Library News

Have you been using the Virtual Library for your ebook selections? Effective July 1, 2014 the consortia will include six Wyoming libraries: Niobrara, Natrona, Platte, Sheridan, Sweetwater and Lincoln. This is exciting news as it will allow our collection to grow, however there are some changes to how the library works in that several publishers don’t allow their books to be sold to a consortia – that doesn’t mean they aren’t available though. Please sign in to your account before searching and if you are not finding what you had previously seen please do not hesitate to let us know. We are very happy to add titles that are suggested if they are available for purchase. There also may be few days for us to adjust the collection with these changes, please be patient with us.

Also coming this fall – downloadable video, music and books will be available to Niobrara County Library patrons! We are excited to be able to offer this, so watch for more information in the coming weeks.
