ATKINSON — Vacation getaways or business trips are the perfect time to take out one of our three regular Kindles, large screen Kindle, Kindle touch, or our Nook. Each kindle has over fifty bestselling titles/authors on it, and our Nook has teen-friendly titles that have been nominated for either the Flume or Isinglass award (books nominated by tweens and teens). Get your name on the waiting list if all our gadgets are checked out. You’ll love having an easily portable library with you.
We also have a fun device for in-house check-out in the children’s room. We have loaded up two iPads with forty book and early literacy apps, and you will be able to check them out to a designated area by the Children’s Information Desk and use them for one hour. Most of the apps are appropriate for preschool age children as well as there are some that you can use with toddlers. There are some apps that are geared for elementary age as well. This is a tool for you to use with your child, and we have an agreement for you to sign before doing so. Come in and have a look.
Just a reminder that folklorist Jo Radner will present ‘Braving the Middle Ground: Stories of Pre-Revolutionary Northern New England’ at the library on Sat., May 11, at 11:30 a.m. In this performance storyteller/historian, Jo Radner, juxtaposes Native American oral traditions and stories told by her own New England ancestors to reveal a complex colonial ‘middle ground’ in which English settlers and Native peoples saw one another as defenders and trespassers, pursuers and refugees, relatives and aliens, kind neighbors and ruthless destroyers. Mark the date!
Please keep weeding those unwanted books, DVDs, and music CDs. We can put them into our collection, the upcoming sale on May 18, or donate them to another organization for you. Call us anytime we’re open and we’ll meet you in the back for large deliveries.
We will be closed Memorial Day weekend (Sat., May 25 through Mon., May 27.) Two day loan items checked out on Thurs., May 23 will not be due back until, May 28. Take advantage of the extension and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
