Summer Reading has Begun!

Ready for those beach reads? Remember, if you’re having trouble with downloading electronic and audio library books to your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Samsung, or other electronic device, E*Book*Aid will be available in the front lobby every Monday afternoon this summer from 2-4. A team of tech wizards will give you personal help with using your digital device so you can read and listen to electronic library books wherever your summer may take you!

This Saturday morning, in the first of our several Adult programs this summer, you'll be able to Learn the Art of Quilling--that's about making those impressive delicate spirally things made of paper. Just like in the photo on the left. That&rsq...

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 ver...

Help for new owners of Electronic Reading Devices

Electronic reading and listening devices are big on Santa’s list these days.

Summer is almost over!

Want to get out of the heat or take a break out of your busy summer schedule?  Catch a free film at our Family Movie Night.  The last two movie nights will be held on August 22nd and 29th.  The movies will be shown in the meeting room and show times start at 4:00 pm.

Don't forget that the end of summer also means the end of our tech tutors program.  If you haven't had a chance to learn a bit more about checking out e-books and e-audiobooks then I encourage you to come by and speak to our electronic experts.  The last two tech tutor sessions will be on August 18th and 25th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
