several devicesWelcome to Way Public Library’s Digital Content Portal. Here you can easily find, access, learn about and enjoy all of our digital content. Way has a broad array of digital content available, ranging from streaming movies, to downloadable audiobooks, to magazines, ebooks, and more!

All of Way Public Library's digital resources require a library card to use. We do, however, offer a special E-Card that is very quick and easy to get if you are only interested in digital materials. These special cards can not be used to check out physical materials at the library such as books, CDs, and Blu-Rays, but are instead designed specifically for quick and easy access to entertainment and information online. If you already have a normal Way Public Library card, you do not need an additional eCard.

Please scroll down to view an easy-to-use list of our online resources. You can also use the menu at the top of this page to view specific resources. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at 419-874-3135 extension 119.

Maintenance Service Notice: Starting July 24th at 10pm, ProQuest provided resources - Fold3 and ProQuest African American Heritage - will be temporarily unavailable for up to ten hours for maintenance work.
