A common myth is that libraries are only utilized by avid readers. This is no longer the case as libraries offer many non-traditional services. New at the library is a Cricut Expression machine for crafters, card makers, scrap booker, quilter, hobbyist or an enthusiastic grandparent wanting new ways to entertain. Several patrons take advantage of free fax services. Copies and laminating services are available for a minimal charge. There is a large selection of movies that can be checked out for 3 days at no charge. Patrons also have access to electronic books for their e-readers via Nebraska Overdrive.

- One-Step Checkout™: Once you’ve logged in with your library card number, it just takes one click to borrow a title.
- OverDrive Read™: Browser-based technology enables instant access to eBooks, online or offline, with no software or downloading required. All you’ll need is a computer or device with a modern web browser. If the title is available to borrow, you can download the title–as you’ve always been able to–or you can choose to start reading right away in your web browser. If you choose browser-based reading, your progression will sync across devices. For example, if you leave off at page 47 on your computer, you’ll start at page 47 on your iPad®!
