9/5/17

WORD OF THE WEEK  Vacillate: to waver (go back and forth) between two (or more) options.

ADULT READING RAFFLE  This is your last week to enter our adult summer reading program.  Prizes include gift cards to The Dirty Gringo, Pizza Hut, and Joann’s Fabrics.  Just recommend a book or five to get your ticket – no purchase necessary.  Entries close this Saturday the 9th and the drawing will be on Monday the 11th.  Look for a list of community-recommended books online next week.

ADIRONDACK PASSES  You still have time to borrow the library’s discount passes for the Adirondack Experience and the Wild Center.  Both locations will close after Columbus Day in October, so don’t miss out.  Call the library or stop in for full details on how the passes work.

New e-borrowing app for libraries

There’s a new app that you can use for your ebooks with your Library card. It’s called Libby and it’s by Overdrive. It’s a new, more user friendly e-book, e-audio book and e-magazine borrowing app.

For more information check out the article below from Michelle McLagan, Director at Lisbon Hepburn Library and Board Member at the Ogdensburg Public Library.

 

St. Lawrence County library
users have a new e-reader app available

 By MICHELLE McLAGAN 

St. Lawrence County library users have access to downloadable e-books and audio books via Overdrive, a service we implemented in 2011 that allows users to read (or listen to) books on their mobile phones, tablets, Kindles, and dedicated e-reader devices. All you need is a device, a library card, and your PIN number to sign up for Overdrive or access your account.

Overdrive has recently added a new application (app) to their offerings - users now have a choice between the original Overdrive app and the new Libby app. Both apps are developed by Overdrive, provide users access to all of the e-books books in our catalog, and provide the basic features and functions necessary to read or listen to books, place holds, create wish lists, and manage accounts.

OGDENSBURG — She’s not a teenager, or a mask-wearing ninja, but the turtle wandering the aisles of the Ogdensburg Library these days has become a huge hit with the public.
