Teen Book Club!
Teens ages 13 to 17 are invited to join our book club! These are held the last Saturday of every month from 12 to 12:45 pm. Stop by to sign up for this and bring a friend! The next book we will discuss is SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK BY MATTHEW QUICK.
Our library provides free delivery of circulating materials to homebound residents of the South Beloit Public Library taxing district. Homebound customers are ones who are homebound either temporarily or permanently due to illness, disability, or age, and physically unable to visit the library. Homebound customers will complete a Reader's Profile with library staff.
Due to delivery logistics, there are some limits placed on the level of service provided to homebound customers. The library can only provide print and audio materials currently on the shelves. Reserves cannot be placed.
We are unable to deliver or pick up materials not checked out on the homebound customer's library card.
Overdue fines will be waived, but homebound customers are responsible for lost or damaged items. Circulation guidelines apply to homebound customers.
For customers who do not have a South Beloit Library card, an application can be brought to the customer. The card will be held at the library while the patron is enrolled in homebound delivery.
Library staff will work with the homebound customer to determine what materials are selected. Staff will keep a record of the reading preferences and items delivered. This record is confidential and is only used to select items the customer will enjoy.
Customers requesting homebound services must provide a safe and appropriate environment for volunteers or staff members who make deliveries to their homes and customers must protect all library materials while in their custody. Volunteers or staff members may choose not to enter a home, to leave a home immediately and/or to recommend suspension of the service for any reason.
The library reserves the right to suspend a customer's homebound status once the customer regains the ability to visit the library.

The South Beloit Library has joined the OMNI eBook consortium. South Beloit Library card holders have access to thousands of eBooks, free of charge, through the library website by clicking on the Overdrive icon below. You must have a valid library card in order to access this collection. The eBooks are downloadable to your computer or laptop, and are supported by some popular reader devices such as the iPad, Kindle, Sony Reader, Nook, and Apple and Android devices. Some audiobooks are also available through OMNI. Log in with your library card barcode number. Your PIN would be the last 4 numbers of the barcode.
Effective April 10, 2014, the OverDrive Media Console (OMC) mobile app for BlackBerry will no longer be available to download on BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, and Playbook devices.
BlackBerry users with the app installed prior to April 10 will be able to continue downloading eBooks and audiobooks via OMC. However, no further development or testing will be dedicated to it.
