New Hampshire Downloadable Books

In case the library is closed, New Hampshire Downloadable Books is always open! Audio books, Ebooks, and magazines are available to download for FREE with a valid library card and a prefix. Check out the NHDB website: nh.lib.overdrive.com

If you don't currently have a library card and would like one, please either email the library at webstermemlib@gmail.com, or call 764-5818. Staff will be checking email and voicemail. Please include your name, phone # and physical address.

If you have a library card and don't know the number because you can't find the card, or don't have the prefix, please call or email the library. It may take a day or two to get back to you as staff will not have anyone's information at home.

Also, and this is important, PLEASE DO NOT GUESS AT YOUR LIBRARY CARD NUMBER when using NHDB. If you are unsure and use someone else's library card, that person will not be able to check anything out because there are limits to checkouts.
