FOCUS ON SERVICES

Happy Thanksgiving from Cherie, Lois & Kay at Hooper Public Library.
Recently a patron survey was sent out in the Hooper water bill, we had a good response to these and appreciate everyone who took the time to fill it out and return it. One thing that we could see from the completed surveys is that not everyone is aware of what your public library has to offer. First of all, most services are FREE with your FREE library card so if you do not have one, stop in today and get yours.
Our free service that we would like to focus on in this article is NEBRASKA OVERDRIVE.
How many of you use a Nook, Kindle, IPad or other tablet to read or listen to audio books? If you do, or perhaps you plan to get one for Christmas this year, don’t PURCHASE books for your device. Simply use Nebraska Overdrive to BORROW ebooks and/or audio books at no charge. Nebraska Overdrive is a service that Hooper Public Library subscribes to so that we can offer it to our patrons. This program loans you audio or ebooks for up to three weeks at a time and you can put items on hold if the title you want is currently checked out. There are thousands of titles for all ages so if the children have devices to read from you will also want them to use Nebraska Overdrive. You will need a library card if you do not currently have one and the password to get into Overdrive. You may contact the library for this if you already have a card but would like to get started using Overdrive. Call 654-3833 or email is at hooperlib@hotmail.com . If you need more information on Nebraska Overdrive feel free to call Hooper Public Library or visit the website http://nebraska.lib.overdrive.com/. This is a great service that we would like to see get even more use than it already is. Many patrons use this service and never even come to the library. As much as we love to see our patrons in person we know that with technology and busy schedules using tablets and other devices to read is commonplace and it is our goal to help you do that.
Try Nebraska Overdrive today!
