Adopt a Book/DVD At the Library!

If you would like to offer direct support to the library’s collection, the Adopt a Book/DVD Program gives you the perfect opportunity. You can choose to adopt an adult or juvenile book or DVD for the library. It is a wonderful way to honor or remember someone special in your life. With your donation, the library will buy a book or DVD to be placed in the library, with a book label indicating both the donor and honoree.

Are you done reading the latest bestseller? Donate it to the library to share with others. You may also choose to adopt any book in the current collection. This program is the perfect opportunity to keep the collection at your library growing.  Please contact library staff for more information and thank you for supporting the Wabasso Public Library!

Getting Started Guide





Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at EbooksMN.org and via free apps from iTunesGoogle Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.

No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.

The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.






Explore authors' entire works on Project Guttenburg.

Want to have the entire works of William Shakespeare or Mark Twain in one file, and completly free?

One of the biggest benefits of eBooks is that they are convenient. One file can contain 5 thousand or 500 thousand words. Instead of downloading 50 seperate books from one author, you can get the most of their publications by clicking on a download button just once.

Our favorite source for free eBooks, Project Guttenburg, has several files that include complete electronic publications of selected classic authors.
