Library Corner 10 12 17

Filed under: Uncategorized — Elma Ross Public Library @ 6:45 pm

Writers block is just no fun. No fun at all. Why can’t I think of anything to write? This is ridiculous. Come on, lady, get your head together. This Library Corner article has to get completed and submitted to the newspaper pronto. Ok, calm down. No sense pacing the office and staring at a blank page on the work processing program. (“Blank sheet of paper sounds better”, but technology is what it is.) Sit down, take a deep breath, have a sip of water (MMMMM, that’s tasty.) and let’s list all the things that are happening at the library for the rest of the month. There is Toddler Time on Monday, October 16th at 11am. All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to come listen to stories and have a craft/color. There is also Lunch and Leisure on Wednesday, October 25th at 12 noon. Everyone is invited to bring a lunch and the library will provide drinks, dessert and coloring materials. (Sounds like great fun, don’t you think?) Oh yes, Halloween is also this month on Tuesday, October 31st. Stop by the library for a treat. Great, now I have a list of items to work with and I can write this article and send it in. One last thing, I always include a “Happy Reading” at the end.

Happy Reading!

October is here. We certainly love to fall into a great book. Come to the library and check out of collections and find a really wonderful read. Fall is a fabulous time to curl up in a comfy chair with a warm blanket and sipping hot tea as you are transported to another time and place in an amazing adventure with one of your favorite characters. We love fall.

If you would rather curl up with your trusty dependable e-reader, that is awesome too. Have you perused the READS catalog lately? There are thousands of books to choose from. READS is absolutely free. All you need is your library card number, an internet connection, and your e-reader. It is important that you key in your library card number correctly. Please remember that there is the letter “O” and not the number “0” in the “BROW” part of your library card number. If you have any issues in downloading/accessing your READS material, please contact the library and we will do everything that we can to help you.

Beginning this month, the library will be allowing 3 DVD checkouts per household and the loan period will be 2 days. Please return all DVDs and Audiobooks INSIDE the library as to prevent any damage being done to the disks by dropping them in the book return box. Thank you for your cooperation.

Happy Reading!
