Book Donations Wanted

Do you have books that you’re looking to get rid of?  As long as they are in good condition and are not reference materials, consider donating them to us!  The books that don’t get added to our shelves may be sold at our book sale in February.  The funds from the sale will go towards programming for people of all ages.  Did I mention that your donation is tax-deductible?  To donate, simply bring in the books during our normal library hours.  (No after-hours drop offs, please)

Drop-in craft #3

Puppets that move are always so much fun!  This week’s craft uses clothespins to create a puppetwith a moving mouth for either a unicorn or a dragon.   Just color, cut, and glue, and soon you’ll have your very own.  All supplies are provided.

Book Chat – Podcasts

Our latest book chat by Penny discussed what podcasts are, and some good ones about books.
Podcasts discussed were:
LeVar Burton Reads
Fictional
Myths and Legends
Greeking Out
Professional Book Nerds
What Should I Read Next
The Slowdown
By the Book

Brief mentions were made of: Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day, SFF Yeah!, Hurry Up and Read, Celebrity Book Club, Smart Podcast Trashy Books, Hey YA

Click on any of the above podcasts to be taken to their website, where you can listen to past and present episodes.

Podcasts can also be listened to on cellphones. There are many different apps that can be used to stream a podcast. If you are using your cellphone, it most likely came with a podcast app that you can use. An iphone comes with the apple podcast app while other phones may have Google podcasts.  Some other popular apps that are available through an app store on your phone Stitcher, Spotify, IHeartRadio, PodcastAddict, Pandora, and PodcastGuru.   After you select an app, you can search for the names of the podcasts you want to listen to, and voila! You are then able to listen to episodes of those podcasts.

If you would like to try listening to podcasts, but need a little help getting started, feel free to stop by the library, and Penny would be glad to help you!
