Dickinson County Libraries - Changes to WILBOR Services
Do you use the public library to check out e-books? The contract between Iowa libraries and WILBOR has changed effective July 1st. Three of the Dickinson County libraries (Spirit Lake, Milford, and Arnolds Park) are affected by the changes.
Basically, you will only use one library to check out e-books and it will be the library in the town where you are a resident. You won’t be able to download from several different libraries.
Residents of cities without libraries may check out these materials through a library that their city contracts for services with - Here are the contracting cities and their libraries:
This library service is called WILBOR (it includes downloadable e-books and downloadable audio-books). The changes will affect your WILBOR account if you already have one. As you specify which library you are qualified to use, you will lose existing lists such as your wish-list and waiting list. A good solution would be to begin your new account while phasing out your old account during the month of June, which is just before the change takes place on July 1st.
One nice thing is that all the libraries in the state use the same basic collection of e-books and audio-books, so your selection of materials will not change as you change which library you download them from. Check with your librarian for any questions you have about using WILBOR. If you do not already use this popular library service, consider getting an account started.
