Explore the Chapel Hill Public Library Online

Summer is the perfect time to dive into a new book series. Fortunately, all you need is an internet connection and a computer or smartphone to explore the Chapel Hill Public Library online. Read on to learn how you can access the library’s virtual resources from the comfort of your Chapel Hill apartment.


Read thousands of eBooks directly from home when you register for an Overdrive account with your library card. Use the Overdrive application to filter by availability, genre, or preferred reading format. The best part about virtual library lending is that you never have to worry about late fees again, as these books return themselves.  

Reading Lists

To make your virtual library experience easy and convenient, the Chapel Hill Public Library created reading lists curated by professional librarians. It’s like having a personal librarian at home with you. You can have your selected list delivered straight to your email inbox, or save it online to view later. As you keep track of all the books you read, don’t forget to participate in the library’s summer reading challenge.

Virtual Activities

Supplement your reading with online educational workshops recommended by the Chapel Hill Public Library. If you’re in an artsy mood, take a free art workshop, or embark upon a virtual tour of an art museum. Alternatively, you can take a lesson on birding or learn how to help NASA collect data on trees. With all of these virtual activities at your fingertips, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a reason to leave our apartments in Chapel Hill.

Take advantage of the best educational resources in our community by exploring the Chapel Hill Public Library online. After you finish your favorite new book, treat yourself to a delicious treat from a local Chapel Hill creamery. If you’re interested in learning more about Southern Village, please contact us today. We would love to walk you through a virtual tour of our apartments in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
