The Webb City Public Library subscribes to a few eMaterials vendors and some good reference databases for both patrons and businesses. We have a couple that specialize in materials and databases for our younger patrons, along with ones that are beneficial to patrons of all ages. We are always looking for cost effective solutions in order to better assist our patrons with their online entertainment and research needs. If you would like to suggest a database that you do not see on this page please email us at info@webbcitylibrary.org, and we will look in to purchasing it.
