Library On The Go

The LibraryOnTheGo service is a collection of titles that have been made available for checkout by the Library. Items may be checked out online and then downloaded to your personal digital device, phone, or computer. eBooks can be returned early.


Three titles may be checked out at a time. Once an eBook has been checked out and downloaded, the eBook is available for use for one or two weeks, depending on the item. After the checkout period has expired, the item is automatically removed from the portable device.


To check out titles, you must have:

  • A valid West Sangamon Public Library card
  • Internet access
  • Your own E-Mail address
  • A computer or portable digital device
  • Cable that came with the device
  • Viewing software, which is available for free
