Be Thankful

This is the time of year to remember the things we are thankful for.  The library has a few things in that category. You can now download audiobooks to your Kindle for free. Yea! The library now has an app that can be downloaded from iTunes to your iPad.  Yea!  Look for "BookMyne".  Hoping each of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  We will reopen on Monday, Nov. 28th at 1:00 pm.

Before you buy that Kindle, Nook or iPad

Planning to take advantage of the great after -Thanksgiving sales?  Free eBooks , eAudios and eVideos are available from the library to go with all these devices.  Yes, I did say “free. ”   Like any other library item, you can borrow these from the library.  They return themselves at the end of your loan period and you NEVER get an overdue fine.

If you are considering purchasing one of these devices (or a similar, less expensive brand) make sure you check out our digital catalog.  To make sure that bargain is a real library bargain check out our list of  compatible & incompatible  devices to be sure your reader or player will work with the library collection.

Almost Time to Share Your Holidays!

The Maud Marks Branch Library is one of the drop-off locations for the ABC 13 Share Your Holidays food drive!  The main day is Friday, December 9 from 6 am to 6 pm.  We have a collection box in the lobby now so if you have non-perishable items that you’d like to donate feel free to drop them off anytime through December 9.  More details will be coming soon .  Thank you for your generosity!

Over the River and Through the Woods

Its here, the 2011 holidays are upon us. The library will be closed Thursday-Sunday November 24-27.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday regularly scheduled programs such as Toddler Time and Story time remain as scheduled.  Don't forget to load up on DVDs, audio books and books for your trip to Grandmas.
