Changes to OverDrive

If you’re a frequent OverDrive user, you may have noticed some changes. The page has been redesigned by a statewide committee. The new site features a much larger, centrally located search box. Advanced search options are still available; Advanced Search is just to the right of the main search box.

On the left column, you’ll see that the various categories to browse are much easier to use. Instead of multiple nonfiction or fiction categories broken up by format, you can browse by format and then genre.

Tax Time

Don’t forget that the library has tax forms available. Forms, including some instruction booklets, are available on the first floor of the library across from the Help Desk. All paper forms are free; however if you need us to print forms for you, you will have to pay standard printing costs.

LearningExpress Library--a hidden gem

We seem to be a culture obsessed with self-improvement. And for good reason—a better skill set, a new certification, a good education can help you land a new job or a promotion. The library is committed to helping job seekers, whether through our Opportunity Center, JobSmart and MoneySmart classes, or by providing resources that help you advance personally and professionally.

Find the Right Book

A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan

New Year, New You

Now that the holiday season is over, we can all take a deep breath and get back into a normal routine. For lots of us though, we're trying out to change that routine. We've got lots of resources to help you with that. Whether you're trying to lose weight, eat healthier, get organized, stop smoking, or learn something new, there are literally thousands of books and DVDs to help you along the way. 

OverDrive: the gift that keeps on giving

Ho ho ho! Santa's on his way and a lot of you are getting e-readers this year. In fact, sales of e-readers are projected to go way up this year. Whether this will be your first e-reader or an upgrade, the library is here to help. 

Our Furry Friends

Pets have always been an important part of my life; over the course of my life I’ve had lots of fish, a guinea pig, a rabbit and dogs. I currently have a cat. For me these creatures are like family and I like to learn the best ways to train, feed, and care for them. The library has tons of books on pet care. Here are three that I find particularly useful: 

Let the library repair your car

I don’t know anything about cars. I couldn’t tell you what a carburetor looks like to save my life. The idea of changing my own oil is laughable. Last year when my tire pressure light came on, I had to have the guys at the Goodyear store show me how to add air to my tires. (Thanks again guys!)

But if you are handy, and I know a lot of you in FDL are, you might see a car problem as a challenge. You might think to yourself, “I can totally fix that.” You’re probably right. But you’ll probably need a little guidance along the way, and that is where I come in.
