  1. Rbdigital eBooks & Audiobooks Now on Libby

    The Horicon Public Library has moved our digital ebooks and audiobooks from RBdigital to the Libby app as part of our OverDrive collection. You will continue to be able to browse, borrow, and enjoy all the same great ebooks and audiobooks you loved in the RBdigital app, now available in Libby.

    If you have already been enjoying the Libby app, there will be no change, other than you may notice even more great titles available for you to borrow.

    For the time being, you can continue to use the RBdigital app to access magazines through ZINIO.

  1. Back to School: What to
    Expect at the Library
    Students in a library

    Typically we’re excited to see all the after-school visitors return to the library for studying, meeting up, or engaging in programs. But, as you can imagine, the library will not be back to normal operating procedures this fall.  We remain in Phase 3 of our re-opening plan offering essential services only with no in-person programming, limited seating, masks are required, and social distancing in place.  The library strives to provide a safe environment for visitors of all ages.

    Unfortunately, students will not be able to use the library after school for gaming, socializing, or waiting for rides or practices to start.  Students may use the library, as would an adult, to quickly browse for materials, study at an available distanced table, or log into the internet either using the wi-fi connection or a library computer for up to one hour.  With these temporary restrictions in place, please plan accordingly.

    Librarians are available and happy to answer reference questions, make reading recommendations, or assist with digital library services like Overdrive or BadgerLink. 

    As our re-opening restrictions change, we’ll update you here, in our newsletter, and the library’s Facebook page.

    We thank you for your cooperation and wish your family well for the 2020-2021 school year.
