Weekly Newsletter ~ January 2, 2013

Happy New Year from your Heyworth Public Library staff!  Many new books will be coming out this January and February 2013.  Stop by or visit our website at heyworthlibrary.com to see our latest titles.  You can reserve library materials right from our website by using the RSA CAT link on the front page of our website.

Did you receive a new tablet or ereader this holiday season?  You can access two free titles at a time with your Heyworth Library card.  Download the free Overdrive Media Console App, and set up a free Adobe Digital Editions software account in the app.  You are then ready to log into the Alliance Digital Media Library (ADML) and then select Heyworth Public Library.  At that point you will enter your library card barcode and our four digit pin.  Some devices work a little differently from the basic directions given; the website overdrive.com has many tips and directions for using the free software and apps.  The library will be holding an Overdrive eBook/audio book tutorial session on Monday, January 7th at 6:30 pm.  Please sign up, and let us know what device you will be bringing.

Upcoming programs:

The Society for Creative Destruction  1/5 @ 10am; Every first Saturday.

Do you enjoy being creative?  Come join us as we explore the art of a different kind of journaling.  Author Keri Smith has created a series called Wreak This Journal offering a fun way to express yourself with art and writing.  Bring a cheap blank composition journal; we will have a few for those who need one.

eBook INFO Night at Heyworth Public Library 1/7 (Mon.) @ 6:30pm; Would you like to learn how to use your eBook reader, tablet, or smartphone to access the library’s eBooks and audio books?  Join us for an overview of Overdrive.  Please sign up in the library so we know what device you will be bringing.
