: In order to comply with the terms of our licensing agreement, our WILBOR service for downloadable eBooks & Audiobooks is now limited to residents of Ames and rural Story County
. Beginning February 18, our system will automatically allow or deny access to WILBOR based on our record of your current residence.
We regret limiting our download service, but we must comply with our contract. Our other services, including Zinio, are not impacted by this change. If you have enjoyed this service but are not a resident of Ames or rural Story County, you may still be able to continue using this service through your local library if they participate in WILBOR or a similar service, such as NEIBORS.
