Did you know?… We’ve replaced our antiquated scanner with a new one that can scan photos and documents and has Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which means you can edit the documents you scan. And this great service is FREE! Instructions are provided next to the scanner or ask one of us for assistance.
Our Nooks continue to be a success and we’ve received such positive feedback about offering resources like this, so we’re adding a new kind of eReader to our collection. A Kindle Keyboard is now available to be borrowed from the library. It checks out for 2 weeks and is preloaded with dozens of classic titles and Newbery Award books. It’s designed to be lightweight (it’s lighter than a paperback book!) and provide a high-contrast, no-glare display for easier reading. Ask to try it today!
We’ve just received A Sailor’s Life for Me!: Old Ironsides Activity Book prepared by the USS Constitution Museum in Boston. This activity book lets your child explore life as a young sailor on board the USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned warship still afloat in the world, “through vivid, detailed drawings, lively text, museum artifacts, hands-on activities, and online games.”
The book, available for checkout now, is accompanied by the website www.asailorslifeforme.org.
And to go along with all this we have passes to the USS Constitution Museum that offer FREE admission for up to 9 people!
