Fall’s back at the Longview Library
Wednesday, Sep 20, 2017 11:13 am
Welcome back to another season at your library. Lynda, our librarian, has many ideas for the coming winter months, so keep your eye on the bulletin board to see what is coming up.
The summer months were busy ones at the library for the school age children, and we also had many tourists dropping by.
A Daisy Reader has been donated to the library.
This reader is for people who are visually impaired or have trouble holding a book.
It is used to play audio books, music, and mp3s. It can bookmark a page, has a sleep button and more. Fifty Daisy Books have been ordered for our library.
Hoopla (a free app to watch movies, music, audio books and videos) will have its monthly patron download reduced from five to two on Sept. 1 because of skyrocketing costs to Marigold.
OverDrive has a new app called Libby. To learn how to use Libby, visit LibbyHelp at help.libbyapp.com
If you are as confused as I am about all this, please drop in to see Lynda and she will shed more light than I can.
A good read is Tides of Honor by Genevieve Graham. It begins with the explosion in Halifax in 1914 when the SS Mont Blanc, a French cargo ship laden with high explosives, blew up.
The novel is of love, loss, honor and resilience on the battlefields of WW One and a cold winter in Halifax.
Another is The Colour of Our Sky, by Anita Trasi.
It is the touching and intimate story of two childhood friends who are separated on one awful night in the city of Mumbi.
The novel is about the search one of them undertakes to find the other.
If you are a fan of Louise Penny, youíd like to get her new release Glass Houses.
