The Libraries Transform Book Pick digital reading program returns with Lauren Francis-Sharma’s epic saga “Book of the Little Axe.” Join the library and book lovers nationwide in reading the same ebook and discussing it online using the hashtag #LTBookPick. Ebook copies of “Book of the Little Axe” will be available September 14-28 without any waitlists or holds. You only need a library card and the Libby app to borrow and read the ebook.
The ebook is the second selection of the Libraries Transform Book Pick, which offers simultaneous access to an ebook through public libraries to engage readers and foster conversation across communities.
Book List Review –
“…a compelling saga of family bonds, ambitions, and desires, all subject to the vagaries of powerful historical forces.”
— Vanessa Bush
The selection of “Book of the Little Axe” for the Libraries Transform Book Pick was made in consultation with experts at Booklist. The digital reading program is a collaboration between the American Library Association (ALA) and OverDrive. Additional information can be found at the Wisconsin Digital Library.
Back to School: What to
Expect at the Library
Typically we’re excited to see all the after-school visitors return to the library for studying, meeting up, or engaging in programs. But, as you can imagine, the library will not be back to normal operating procedures this fall. We remain in Phase 3 of our re-opening plan offering essential services only with no in-person programming, limited seating, masks are required, and social distancing in place. The library strives to provide a safe environment for visitors of all ages.
Unfortunately, students will not be able to use the library after school for gaming, socializing, or waiting for rides or practices to start. Students may use the library, as would an adult, to quickly browse for materials, study at an available distanced table, or log into the internet either using the wi-fi connection or a library computer for up to one hour. With these temporary restrictions in place, please plan accordingly.
Librarians are available and happy to answer reference questions, make reading recommendations, or assist with digital library services like Overdrive or BadgerLink.
As our re-opening restrictions change, we’ll update you here, in our newsletter, and the library’s Facebook page.
We thank you for your cooperation and wish your family well for the 2020-2021 school year.
