Library News's blog
"Make a 'State'ment: Read" during this year's adult winter reading program! Participants will select titles based on their location in the United States. A list entitled "Literary tour of the United States" from the website Qwiklit.com served as the inspiration for this year's theme.
The program runs January 6 through March 8, 2014 and reading logs will be available after January 1. Reading six books chosen from eight different categories will entitle you to a prize packet, an invitation to the final party and an entry in a grand prize drawing for a Kindle e-reader!
Library patrons now have access to a selection of complete digital magazines, which can be downloaded and read on a computer, tablet or smartphone. The Zinio service digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, search features and interactive elements such as audio and video. The best part is that patrons have unlimited access with no expiration date, so magazines can be read indefinitely.
The library offers over 20 popular titles including Food Network, Macworld, National Geographic, Newsweek, and Rolling Stone. Some of the magazines, such as Newsweek, are only available from the library digitally. Access the Zinio Magazine Service here!
NOTE: Kindle Fire users will need to download the Zinio app directly from the Zinio site here.
