Located in the Community Resource Centre the library is an excellent resource available to our community. We have a selection of fiction, non-fiction and junior books, videos/DVDs, talking books and CD’s. As a part of the State Library network we have access to hundreds of thousands of issues, so if we don’t have what you need on the shelf we can order it for you. New stock arrives every month.
To reserve items, or to order something in, please contact us. The Library is staffed by Council staff on Mondays and Wednesdays, so those are the best times to call if you have any special requests.
Audio books via BorrowBox - super easy on your portable device!
Bolinda BorrowBox provides members of the Williams library with an easy way to access audio books. BorrowBox is accessed via using your Williams Library membership barcode, so you may need to call us on 9885 1378 if you don't know what your barcode is.
Click on this link to navigate to the digital media website, http://library.bolindadigital.com/williams.
Click here to access the BorrowBox User Guide.
It's really easy to access BorrowBox by downloading the BorrowBox App for Apple or Android smartphones or tablets, just make sure you select Williams from the list of libraries before entering a barcode. Click here to access the User Guide for the BorrowBox App.
There is a Borrowbox link on the State Library WA website, but it can only be used by SLWA members.
E-books available through your Library
As a member of the Williams library you are now able to download e-books directly to your computer or mobile device. Please contact the library first so we can add your library number to the new system. When you have been given your library number and PIN, you can click here to go directly to the WA Public Libraries Digital Media Collection. There you can browse, download or reserve the digital items you are interested in. You will need your library number and PIN to sign in before you can download items. You may also need to download some additional free software to manage and read your downloads, and the links for that software are already on the above Public Libraries website. If any of this sounds too tricky, just call us, or come in to talk to Manuela on Mondays or Hazel on Wednesdays. We're looking forward to your visit.
You can access the Library Edition of ancestry.com from one of our library computers in the Resource Centre. While this is one of our databases which you cannot access from your home computer, use of the library computer for this service is free of charge.
