New Gadgets What Do I Do?

Christmas overwhelmed me with so much new technology. I wonder what my kids were even thinking. They tell me it is time for me to get with it. If you or anyone else is feeling like this, come by the library every Saturday in the month of January and February. We have (Tech Tutors) from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. available to help you. Bring your Nook, Kindle, IPod’s, I Pad or any other E-reader. There are books available on our catalog to help. No fear Northwest Branch is here.

 

Holiday Art

Have you seen the recent additions to our public bulletin board?  Next time you stroll through the lobby, take a moment and appreciate the colorfully decorated reindeer, snowman, and gingerbread houses of our artistic young patrons.  We will continue to put up any holiday or winter themed works brought to us throughout the remainder of the year.  Coloring pages are still available and although space is limited, we will display all submissions.  Happy Holidays! 

Christmas Cheer!

Do you like  to sing Christmas carols at your Christmas party? Do you listen to Christmas music 24/7 in your car, at work, and at home? Do you read Christmas stories by the Christmas tree or have Christmas movie marathons? If you answered yes to any of the above then you are in luck. Our library offers a variety of books, music, and movies for this special holiday season to share with your family and loved ones. Stop by and check out these items today!

Stocking Stuffers One of a Kind

 There are actually a few more days of shopping for Christmas. At this point you have probably run out of ideas. Well, what about a stocking stuffer for an avid reader or someone you want to get interested in reading more. Here is a great idea, what about stocking stuffers of reading tools. Let’s explore, an EBook, Hardcopy Book, and last but not least a gift card to purchase a book. In case you don’t want that just give them an application to fill out for a library card which is free and they can get up to 75 books at one time. Also, check out the library catalog for EBooks, and hardcopy books you can direct them there to get them started.
