World Book Online

Access World Book Online through the Osceola Public Library

The Library recently placed an order for a current set of World Book Encyclopedias. At the same time we paid for a subscription to World Book's Online service. Our patrons now have access to the following:

  • World Book Online Info Finder
  • World Book Online Reference Center
  • World Book Online For Kids
  • Enciclopedia Estudiantil Hallazgos


The Online Info Finder has a search option to find the info you want. It also contains current events, world newspapers, including The Des Moines Register, and even a collection of science projects and experiments.

The Online Reference Center for adults contains your typical research tools, but also offers computer and web tutorials, life skills, such as buying a car or apartment hunting, and government resources.

Online for Kids is fun AND educational, containing games and activities, maps and more, science projects and videos.

Access is limited to our library patrons. If you'd like to access the site from your home computer, please contact the library in order to get required login information.
