Heyworth Public Library District

We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter ~ June 6, 2012

Would you like to be able to use your Heyworth Public Library from your home computer anytime you want?  Join us on Monday, June 18th at 5:30 pm in our Community Room for a quick tour of our website and all that we offer.  Learn how to select books and other materials for holds and interlibrary loan.  We will also highlight our free links, databases, and give an overview of our free eBooks and audiobook online library.  We will offer this again in July.

Get caught reading this summer – send us a picture of you or your children reading Heyworth Public Library books this summer to hpldpictures@gmail.com! Pictures can also be dropped off at the library to display.  Let’s see how far our books travel this summer – tree houses, beach vacations, and backyard escapes – you won’t know where a reading moment could happen if you don’t have books on hand!
