Digital Materials

NRLD offers several opportunities for our patrons to access e-books, e-audio books, and magazines at home on various tablets, computers, or smart phones. You can access most of these items with just your barcode (no spaces typed) and your PIN (usually the last four digits of your phone number).

Digital Library of Illinois

E-books and e-audio books are available to NRLD patrons through their website. Instructions to get you started are here.

This is an Overdrive product. The Libby app is available at your favorite app store. Our library is listed as Illinois Heartland Library System, not by our individual name.

Local history resources are available in their own section. The library is currently seeking to expand our digitized collection.

Local History Resources

Newman Regional Library District also hosts local history resources that may be used for genealogy and other purposes. These local materials are non-circulating but patrons are welcome to make copies for a nominal fee or take photographs.
