Many new books are pouring into the library.  Fall is a great time to catch up on favorite authors or to find new ones to love.  Don’t forget to try downloading our free eBooks and audiobooks via our website:  heyworthlibrary.com.

The Nook Overdrive app was just released this week to allow for wireless transfers of library downloads!  Overdrive has committed to making the use of library eBooks and audiobooks easier for all in the near future.

Join us for a fun program this Saturday morning, October 6 at 10 a.m. ~  The Society for Creative Destruction.  Bring an inexpensive notebook and your creativity, and we’ll provide the rest.  This is an inspired art form from author, Keri Smith, who has produced a series called Wreak This Journal.
