Heyworth Public Library will be taking part in the Big Library Read program. Library card holders will be able to borrow and enjoy eBook and audiobook versions of the Big Library Read book, “Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth” by Jane O’Connor, from September 16th through September 30th by visiting [http://alliance.lib.overdrive.com].

Big Library Read is an international program that gives libraries and library patrons unlimited simultaneous access to a popular title for a two-week period, creating a virtual, global book club. Interested patrons will be able borrow Book 1 in the Nancy Clancy series using a valid library card, and enjoy on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle® without worrying about wait lists or holds. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, the leading supplier of eBooks and more to libraries, and HarperCollins, publisher of the best-selling Fancy Nancy series of children’s titles. To borrow the eBook and audiobook versions of “Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth” as part of Big Library Read, patrons can visit [http://alliance.lib.overdrive.com].

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.  Monday, September 2nd the library will be closed in observance of the Labor Day holiday.
Back to school has arrived!  September is National Library Card Sign Up Month – Be sure your family has 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.
