Got a Nook for Christmas? Want to read eBooks on your iPhone? We can show you!

Puzzled over eBooks?

Did you know that you can still check out eBooks and place holds, even when the library is closed? We have a large collection of eMedia -- downloadable eBooks, audio eBooks and eFlicks (movies) -- available on your portable device or home computer 24/7. The Community Technology Center is providing FREE instruction to show you how it's done!

The Community Technology Center is offering several eMedia classes in January that will teach you things like how to download library eBooks to your new Nook or to access eMedia from your Droid! With upgrades to the library's services and temporary changes, there is no better time to take the plunge! Once you learn how to put eMedia on your portable devices, you will be able to check out library books from the comfort of your own home without packing up your kids or finding a parking place! Sound good? Bring your device -- eReader, MP3 player, iPhone, Android, laptop, etc.

Don't let the hold on holds get you down! In addition to keeping track of items you would like to put on hold later on paper, there are lots of other great ways to keep track of books you have read and would like to read online! How do you keep track of what you want to read?

These sites are free, easy to use and provide unique ways of keeping track of what you have read and would like to read.

This year, 76 citizens from 39 countries were naturalized. Together with their friends and families, about 275 people attended the ceremony in the Central Library's Schlessman Hall, followed by a brief reception in the B2 Conference Center.

Members of the Daughters of the American Revolution handed out miniature flags. Members of the Monument Hill Sertoma Club distributed copies of booklets containing the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
