#eBooksforAll

Tell Macmillan Publisher CEO John Sargent that you demand #eBooksforAll

America’s libraries are committed to promoting literacy and a love of reading with diverse collections, programs and services for all ages. In an increasingly digital world, our libraries are investing more in eBooks and downloadable media. And millions of people discover and explore new and favorite authors through both our digital and print collections.

But now one publisher has decided to limit readers’ access to new eBook titles through their libraries. 

Introducing... Vox Books!

Introducing... Vox Books! These books read the story aloud to you. Simply press the button right inside the cover - it'll even tell you when to turn the page. You can find them inside the Children's Room. They check out just like a book!

Curious? See Ms. Ashley for a demo.

New Lights in the Reading Rooms

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, we have new lights in the Reading Rooms. The new lights make the room much brighter and more inviting. The lights also highlight the beauty of the ceiling and murals which were difficult to see with the older lights. Thank you Friends!
