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

Weekly Newsletter ~ August 16, 2013

The library’s hours on Tuesday will change beginning September 3 to 1 pm – 8 pm.  All other days and times will remain the same.  This allows the library to be open three evenings in the winter.

Got FREEGAL? Your Heyworth Public Library does – and so can you!  Enjoy free and legal music you keep.  Just go to our website and click on the FREEGAL box.  It’s a link. Enter your library card barcode and PIN number. Select the 3 songs you want to download each week. The songs are yours to keep for free – forever.

Heyworth Public Library will launch the 4.0 update to its highly-successful Freegal Music Service on Friday, August 16th.  The Heyworth Public Library’s patrons will enjoy significant new benefits with Freegal 4.0 including access to over 4 million new songs from 12,000 labels from around the world, a brand-new interface with a new-generation search and browse function, the ability to download from a selection of 8,000 popular DRM-free music videos and several other crowd-pleasing features.   By the end of this summer, the library’s digital music collection will top 7 million songs from over 28,000 labels including Sony Music Entertainment’s catalog of legendary artists. The labels originate from over 85 countries around the globe.  The library launched Freegal Music in April 2013 and is now one of over 3,000 libraries offering the service.

The Freegal Music Service has free mobile apps for registered cardholders of subscribing libraries.  The Freegal Music apps are available in the Apple® App Store and Google Play®.  Enjoy music from your Heyworth Public Library!

Back to school has arrived!  Be sure your families have their library cards ready and up-to-date.  If you use email, or just use cell phones, please let the library know of these changes so we can update our records.  Our online circulation software sends automatic courtesy notices via email three days before materials are due back.  Many in our community appreciate this new feature.

Our summer reading programs have ended, but the new books for fall are arriving daily.  If your child completed a summer reading log, please don’t forget to come into the library during the month of August to pick up their backpack of prizes.
