Looking for a new series?
We've got LOTS of series to check out....these are just a few:
Call First During Bad Weather
If you plan a trip to the library, please call first and speak with someone BEFORE you venture out when road conditions are bad.
If Gull Lake Schools are closed because of bad weather, that does not automatically mean the library is closed. Call us and find out!
Check out an eReader
We have two Nooks and four Kindles--all pre-loaded with popular fiction for check-out to Richland Residents or paid members. You can place holds on these through our online catalog on the horizontal dropdown menu.
Borrow eBooks on OverDrive
-- our downloadable resource for audio and e-books! Visit the HELP screens or google your device name and "OverDrive" for great online help. HINT: Enter your library card number when you log in to get faster access to select titles.
Not finding your favorite author on OverDrive? Sadly, many publishers refuse to distribute their digital content through libraries. Publishers impose limits similar to print books, allowing only one person at a time to download the digital title.
