The OverDrives, They Are A-Changin'

Just when you thought you had figured out exactly how to check eBooks out to your Digital Device from our Digital Media Catalog, our primary eBook distributor, OverDrive has gone and changed things on us. 

In the next few weeks, you will find that the OverDrive interface has had a bit of a makeover - one that they purport will make the eBook checkout process easier, but one that may also, on first encounter, cause the anxiety of figuring this whole eBook thing out to return.

But do not worry, for HCPL is here to help!  The first place to go for help with this "Next Generation" of OverDrive is with this handy guide provided by our very helpful digital media support staff, fully equipped with this informative video provided by OverDrive.

Here at Northwest, we'll also be holding our Tech Tutors sessions every Saturday during January and February from 10 am to noon.  Bring in your device, and we'll help guide you through the eBook checkout process, hopefully in the least confusing way.  We're here to help!

New Year, New Events

 

It is a new year and with the new year we have new events at our library. Check out our variety of events we will be hosting. Don't worry we will still keep all your favorites.  We will have programs for those young and young at heart. If you want to learn new skills or just refresh your mind come on in. Check out our events calendar and see for yourself or pick up a calendar in the library for more information.

Readers Perspective

What a unique way of recognizing my opinion when reading a book. If this is important to me, I wonder how many others have the same idea when it comes to reading. Northwest Branch has a book club that reads all kinds of fiction. In doing so, we are able to express our perspectives on the matter. If this is something you would like to be a part of, join us on the 4th Monday of every month. Our next meeting is January 28th @ 2:00 PM. We will be discussing, The Litigators by John Grisham.

 

Tagore Society

Northwest Branch Library will be having a presentation to honor the life and works of Rabindranath Tagore of India. He was a poet, short-story writer, song composer, novelist, playwright, essayist, and painter. You are welcome to join us and be enlightened. This program will be on January 19, 2012 at 10:00 AM. See You There!
