Heyworth Public Library

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

Weekly Newsletter ~ January 8, 2015

A new year and new digital devices may have been gifted to you this holiday season. We have FREE eBooks and music that you can use with your Heyworth Public Library card! We also have a free app to monitor your library account.  With a touch of button know when your material is due and renew 24/7 with our Bookmyne app.

If your digital device uses apps from the Google Play or iTunes stores it will also work with our FREE library apps to access eBooks and music. Our digital resources also work with devices that do not use apps and instructions are available on our website. Visit our website at heyworthlibrary.com for instructions for popular devices or call to schedule a one on one tutorial (473-2313) on how to use our eBook and music databases with or without apps.

Create our January Make It/Take It craft the next time you visit the library, a soda tab bracelet. All the supplies and instructions are provided on a central table in the library. No reservations or planning around YOUR schedule to come to a class. During January we are offering the opportunity to make a bracelet from the tab tops of soda cans. They are very trendy, and an excellent opportunity to recycle in style.
