Nooks for Checkout?

Exciting news, everyone!  In the next couple of weeks here at Northwest, we will be launching a pilot program in which we will begin circulating Nook Simple Touches to interested patrons. 

In total we will have six Nooks in circulation - three of which will be YA-oriented, preloaded with popular YA titles and most of the titles from the 2013 Lone Star Reading List, and three of which will be adult-oriented, preloaded with highly requested and other popular adult fiction and non-fiction titles.

The Nooks will check out for two weeks at a time, with one renewal allowed if there are no other patrons on the waitlist to check one out.  To check out a Nook, you must present us with your library card at the desk, have had the card for at least 30 days, be at least 12 years of age, be in good standing, and fill out a form in which you agree to abide by the Nook Circulation Policy.

It may be a couple of weeks before the program starts up, but in the meantime feel free to stop by and reserve one.  We'll have a sign-up sheet at the front desk.  We're looking forward to it, and we hope that you are as well!
