Have you visited the Virtual Library? Since its debut in July, patrons have downloaded to a variety of devices and as of September 22 patrons are now able to download free library eBooks to the Amazon Kindle! Check it out today by going to our homepage and clicking on the Virtual Library logo. Your library card and PIN are needed to check out. This is a new collection and very much in the growing stages so patrons are limited to 3 books at a time for now; however, there are over 34,000 thousand “Always Available Titles” that do not count against the 3 items. Take a look today and if you would like more information about this or any of the online library resources be sure to stop by or call to schedule a time for one-on-one instruction.
