The West Virginia Library Commission has posted a listing of vendors offering free access to their electronic resources, such as Amazon Prime Family Programming, Audible Stories, and Booklist online content.  Click here for a complete listing and links to each available resource.


The staff and board of the Shepherdstown Public Library would like you to know that we sincerely regret the impact that closing the library has had and will have on all of us. We appreciate your patience and support, and we will do our best to support you to the extent possible. For now, we are exercising the most extreme option of shutting down all services for patrons. We will reassess our status on a weekly basis and take the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and local authorities. 


You can still use the “Libby” app (Quick Link below) to access our eBook and eAudio collections. Many new audio books and eBooks are available!  If you need your library information to access Libby or need a new library card, contact Hali Taylor, Library Director, at (617) 710-7757 - she will be able to set you up - pass it on!





Audible has made hundreds of titles

available and completely free to help

during this time of crisis.











You can now lowload over 300,000 books

from the New York Public Library for free!







Plus, we have many online opportunities for those of you with access – including learning a new language, learning to play an instrument, practicing tests for all sorts of educational and vocational goals, and suggested links to lessons that are geared towards home-schooling your children. Please stop by our FaceBook page or send us an email letting us know how you’re spending your time – new projects? Great books? Gardening? Art?


Over 700 classes are available at Universal Class, and you can learn to play over 15 instruments in different styles at Artist Works from RB Digital. Pronunciator is a great language-learning app. Free access is available by clicking on the links below.


Here are some databases that are available – first log in to, and then check them out! Please call for assistance if your library card and PIN are required. You can leave a message at the library and those messages will be retrieved throughout the day and answered as soon as possible.
