It seems like spring and warm weather are slow to arrive this year and everyone is looking for something to do. While you wait, the Fiction Department has some new items to help pass the time. Newly added to our collection are the Sony Readers for e-books. Adults, 18 and over, may borrow a Reader for a period of two weeks. Fiction and non-fiction titles for adults, young adults, and children, can be downloaded to the Reader through the Overdrive website. Stop by the Fiction desk for more information.
We have recently added Xbox 360 video games to our young adult collection. Currently 40 games are available with more being added all the time. Anyone 12 and over can borrow one game at a time for four days.
This year, the theme for the young adult Summer Reading Club is “Spark a Reaction.” We will be exploring everything from science to science fiction with crafts and demonstrations using everyday household items. Some of our projects will end with a competition and prizes for everyone! This promises to be a busy and exciting summer, so please bring the kids and let them “Spark a Reaction” with us!
