Smart Phone, Smart Car, Smart Solution
It seems like just yesterday we made the transition from audiocassettes to compact discs. But I’ve worked long enough at the library to watch the discs become obsolete as well. Many of you have purchased newer vehicles over the last 3 years and complained about not being able to listen to audiobooks. Your libraries have caught up with technology, and you can still listen to great books during your extended vacation drives or commutes.
Most of us have smartphones or tablets we can plug into the car’s audio system. Try downloading the Libby app via Google Play or the App Store. A one-time set-up entering your library and account information gives you access to over 150,000 free eBooks and eAudiobooks with a swipe of your thumb. Once you’ve downloaded
yournext listen, either plug in or blue-tooth your way to hours of listening entertainment.
Not sure how to make it all work? Stop in the library, and we’ll help get you squared away.
Horicon Aquatic Center Pass
We know it hasn’t been hot enough, long enough yet to be longing for a cool spot to hang out, but the library can’t help but be excited about our pool's opening day on June 2nd. If you’re at all familiar with our educational institution passes, we’ve added a new venue to our collection, the pool! The City generously donated a family pass for our patrons to check out admitting up to 4 guests. How cool is that! Check with the library for specific rules and restrictions.
See you under the giant umbrella.
