How to log on to WILBOR

It's easy to get started borrowing ebooks through the WILBOR program! Here's how...

First of all, you must be a Lacona Public Library city or rural patron.  If you are an Open Access patron, you are not eligible at this time to check out books through Lacona's link.  Check with your home library for instructions.  Lacona rural patrons now have an "R" after their 4-digit library card number, which must be entered right after the number whenever you login to WILBOR.  City patrons just use their card number.

On the Welcome page of this website is a WILBOR icon located near the top of the library info section on the left side.  To start browsing, click on the WILBOR icon and it will take you into the page.  You must then click on the Login tab and follow the directions.  It asks you to choose which library, and you type in Lacona.  Then it will ask your patron number, and that's where you type in your 4-digit number (followed by an "R" if you're a rural patron).  If all that goes well, you will then be all set to browse the book titles and try checking things out. 

If you have any difficulties with accessing the site or checking out materials, contact me (Kate) at the library for trouble-shooting.  There are a few little tips and tricks I can share with you also, to make the WILBOR experience more convenient and enjoyable.  I was sure I wouldn't like reading e-books, having grown up addicted to the smell of book-binding and printer's ink, but I'm finding it very nice indeed to always have something to read, and to be able to access titles our little library would never have enough room to stock.  I haven't tried any audiobooks yet, but I intend to do so.  Those can be so wonderful to listen to when traveling or commuting or preparing a meal.  WILBOR has a lot to offer -- why not give it a try?
