NEVER BE WITHOUT SOMETHING TO READ!

READ BOOKS on your handheld devices! We are now up and going with our subscription to Sunflower e-library.

Just log in with your PATRON NUMBER and LAST NAME.

The login is case sensitive so your last name would have the first letter capitalized.

Find HILLSBORO PUBLIC LIBRARY from the drop-down menu and get started!   Here is the website

New FREE source for audiobooks and ebooks!

We are SO happy to be able to let you know that HILLSBORO PUBLIC LIBRARY is now a member of the Sunflower elibrary consortium!  This is yet another FREE source for our library patrons to access audiobooks and ebooks.  Access is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.  We have added a “handylink” to our web page for your access!  Login is so simple!  After opening the page click on “signin” in the upper right hand corner.  From there choose “Hillsboro Public Library”.  Your login is your library card number.  Password is your last name– Capitalize the first letter in your name.  It should open right up for you.  You can have this information saved to your computer or device for you…   The help pages are great in walking you through any questions you may have.  We can also help you if you come in to the library.

HOW TO CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT

It is really pretty easy to create an account.

You are at the right place already!

Click on CATALOG in the upper right hand corner of this page.

You’ll get a maroon screen .

To the upper right you’ll see two yellow boxes.  One will have the orange title of user name.  There, you will put your library card number.  No spaces.

The second box is for your password.  For the first time you will put userpass.  You will be able to change it later!

 

After that you may log in to your account.  You’ll see a light blue screen with a list of libraries.  This is where you can do a search for library materials available.  To choose our library just click on the box next to NORCAT.  I think it defaults to that setting.

In the upper left is the Blue box for “patron menu”.  This is where you can change your password and check your account status.  Click on “my account” and then once again “my account”.

If you have any problems please give us a call at 947-3827.

RENEW YOUR MATERIALS ON-LINE!

Patrons may respond to e-mail reminders automatically generated by our system.  If you would like us to renew your materials, provided your account is current, just respond to the e-mail with your request.  If we have not responded to let you know your new due date you may then need to call us.  We may not have received the e-mail.  Remember, you can access your account 24 hours a day on-line!  If you know your book is coming due soon you don’t need to wait for the e-mail reminder.  Simpy e-mail the library at hillsboropubliclib@gmail.com to request the renewal.  We always respond when we receive the e-mail to let you know the new due date or let you know if the item is not renewable or on reserve for another patron.  If you haven’t had a response from us, we didn’t receive the e-mail!

If you don’t know your account number give us a phone call!  620-947-3827.

Check the AR Level of a Book!

Moms and Dads!  Is your student reading a book during Christmas Break, or did they receive a book or two for a gift?  You can check the reading level and how many points that book is worth.  A great incentive to read and be ahead in reading when school begins again!  Go to :  www.renlearn.com .  Go to the “store” and then “quiz search”.  Good luck!

Many of you have asked for sources for FREE e-books.  This is a link I nabbed from Finney County Public Library in Garden City.  I hope you find a lot to read!
