E-books now available at our library

15 November 2012

Arthur Library has just became a partner in Overdrive, a free online library. Some of you may know what this is already, but for those of you that don’t, it is a colaboration of libraries that provide e-books for their patrons with no charge. E-books are books that you can read or listen to electronically. You are going to need three things to read/listen to e-books. First, you’ll need a type of electronic device such as, smart phones, computers, laptops, tablets, etc. Second, you’ll need internet access(you will actually be downloading the book to your electronic device, so you’ll only need internet access when you are actually downloading the book or looking at the website). Third, you’ll need software. This will be easiest if you come in and I can help you with this part. If you’re a little more independent and feel you know what you’re doing you’ll just need your username and password to start. The website you will be going to is http://nebraska.lib.overdrive.com . I’m going to try and add this link to our website. You can go ahead and call me to get your information. I’m at the library from 2-5 p.m. Mon. thru Fri., but if this doesn’t work for you, you can just call me at 308-289-5574. We are still working out all of the kinks and aren’t actually going live until November 16, 2012, so please bare with me as I am learning this as I go also. It’s a very exciting new feature for our library, especially for those of you who have difficulty getting to the library, and I hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions at all you can either come see me or just give me a call.

A Big Thank You

29 August 2012

So many people have been donating books lately. Belinda Daly just recently donated quite a few Michael Connelly books and Stephen White. Carolyn Cerny has also donated quite a few books along with Brenda Cullinan donating pretty much our entire books-on-cds. Many more people have also donated to the library which have added wonderfully to our collection. It’s people like this that keep this library going. So come on in and see all of our new books.

The Summer Reading Program will be June 20 & 27 and July 11 & 18. There will be two groups: children up to 2nd grade and 3rd grade up to 6th grade. If any older kids are interested in doing a group reading, I would love to set something up. I’m waiting to find out when swimming lessons are to let you know what time the sessions will start. There will also be a reading contest with three categories, pre-K to 2nd grade(your parents can help by reading to you pre-K to 2nd grade only), 3rd to 5th, and 6th to 8th. You can count pages of books you’ve read since the last day of school. The LAST day you can submit pages read will be July 11. Your parents need to sign that you’ve read the pages.
