Reserve a Nook
Curious about e-readers and want to see what they are all about? Place a reservation for one of our Nooks! There are two models of the Nook: the Nook Simple Touch and the Nook Color. The Nook Simple Touch is a simple black and white e-reader designed just for reading ebooks. The Nook Color is a tablet that allows users to read ebooks, go on the internet (where wifi is available), stream video and use applications. Picture books are especially fun on the Nook Color as many children’s ebooks are interactive.
Come check out our new microfilm reader/printer! The clarity of both the onscreen image and the printouts is much higher than our old machines. And thanks to the generosity of an anonymous patron, we now have a printer for the film that will allow you to print an entire page of the newspaper on one sheet. Do you have someone with a birthday coming up? Print the front page of the paper from their birthday, or maybe the ads to see how prices have changed. Ask at the Reference Desk for a “tour” of the new machine.
