Make the Holidays Easier with Ebooks!

Now that that December is really here, life is getting more and more difficult. People are travelling, which leads to cranky road trips, stores and roads get crowded with all the holiday shoppers, and it just seems like you have less and less time to get everything done. All those things combined means that it gets harder and harder to get to the library and get the books that you need to keep your sanity. Fortunately, your HCPL website is here to help, offering electronic books and audiobooks that you can download, read or listen to, and return, without any need to go to the library! That’s right! You can have books for road trips, audiobooks for traffic, and you get this with just a click of a button, no need to go outside! What’s more, we have plenty of sites to choose from.

Biographies for all ages

Have you ever heard the phrase about how life is an empty book and we’re the authors? Well, I couldn’t remember exactly how it went so I went on a little Google search and found…a lot of very similar quotes that all boil down to the same thing. My life, well, probably wouldn’t make the most interesting of reading materials to the general public, but there are some works out there, some people out there, that have filled their books with some amazing things. With that in mind, here are a handful of biographies for each age group, perfect to learn from and be inspired by.
