Even when the physical library is closed, our electronic library is always open. By visiting http://molib2go.org, you have instant access to thousands of e-books, downloadable audiobooks, and streaming videos. You can also visit sikeston.missourievergreen.org to access your library account to renew books and place holds.

Cozy up with an e-book!

One of our best-kept secrets is our electronic offerings. Through MoLib2Go, a consortium of approximately 100 Missouri libraries, we offer e-books and downloadable audiobooks.

With your library card information from us, patrons can set up an account to download as many as 10 e-books and audiobooks at a time. Once your time with the item expires, it is automatically returned for the next patron to borrow. You can even renew items, if no other patrons are on a waiting list for the item.

What device can you use for MoLib2Go? Just about any device with internet access can be turned into an e-reader. Most smartphones — whether they run iOS, Android or Windows — can function as an e-reader.  Tablets ranging from iPads to Samsung to bargain basement tablets can also work. You can even read on your laptop or desktop computer.

If you’re interested in trying e-books, or you’re just done with spending money on downloadable materials, visit the circulation desk to receive all the information you need to get started with MoLib2Go.

Storytime fun every Wednesday!

Every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m., the library hosts Preschool Storytime, for children between the ages of 2 and 5. Ms. Ann starts the morning by reading a couple of stories. We then sing songs, do an age-appropriate craft, and enjoy snacktime.

We do not require reservations for this program; just come when you can. A fun time is guaranteed every week!
