Instant gratification

Library News Header

In our Fall issue of Library News, we’re talking about Hoopla, a place on our digital branch where you can get a ton of free stuff instantly. That includes movies, TV shows, full music albums, ebooks, audiobooks and comic books. We show you how easy it is to get started using Hoopla.

There’s more great stuff inside this issue. We’ve gone out with librarians into the community to see how they’re helping people in Hi-Crest find jobs. We show you how the library is helping out those who got left behind with the advent of computer technology and prove that libraries still matter in the age of Google. Plus, we’ve got 260 events happening in October and November.

Take a peek before you meander into the physical library, Bookmobiles or your neighborhood Smartlocker.
