Still haven’t checked out our eBooks yet?

You’re not alone. There are plenty of our patrons that prefer to stick to good-old paper, and there is nothing wrong with that – we’re librarians, we understand the appeal of books – but, might there be room for both? Most of the numbers seem to indicate that the majority of ebook readers are also print book readers. So don’t feel guilty. You’re not abandoning print, you’re supplementing it.

Need more incentive? Here is a list of some of the titles available through OverDrive (one of are ematerial collections) that people enjoyed most in 2016. There’s some good stuff on there.

Interested but unsure of how to get started? You can find instructions here, or feel free to stop by the second floor reference desk at the library with your digital device of choice and we will get you started.


To appreciate audiobooks.

June is Audiobook Appreciation Month. I know, I feel bad about not appreciating audiobooks enough this month too. Luckily there is still a little time left in June.

I know. The fact that the book is making sound into to head phones doesn't make a ton a sense. Deal with it.And if you need help finding an audiobook to show your appreciation for you can always come to the library. We’ve got tons of audio books on CD and PlayAway. Or, if you are looking for something a bit more intangible, you can check out one of our e-resources catalogs and download an e-audiobook directly to your computer or digital device; our OverDrive, Axis 360 and Hoopla! collections all have e-audiobooks to choose from. Go! Appreciate! Before it’s too late!

And as an added bonus, as if you needed any more reasons to check out audiobooks, finishing an audiobook counts as finishing a book for our Summer Reading Program, so don’t forget to fill out your reading slips and bring them in for more chances to win our prize drawings!

“The only thing better than reading a good book is to have someone with a cool voice read you a good book while you are do something that would otherwise be completely monotonous and boring. Audiobooks are the only reason I have any clean dishes in my house.” – Me, just now.
