Something New at the Library
Sunflower E-Library is now up and running. This allows patrons of the Norton Public Library to download books onto their e-readers for free. Patrons can also download audiobooks to their audio devices for free. A part of the perks is that due to generous donations NPL is able to purchase e-books that can only be checked out by NPL patrons. That makes waiting time for titles a lot less. Patrons also have access to the whole Sunflower E-Library consortium’s collection of e-books. Sunflower E-Library is brought to you by the Northwest Kansas Library System and the Norton Public Library. Zinio Online Magazines are Here! The Northwest Kansas Library System has brought magazines online to the patrons of the Norton Public Library. You are able to download current magazines to your computer or e-reader and read them in their entirety.
