    Stay Home, Relax, and Read!

    by Sonya - 0 Comment(s)

    The holidays are a great time to visit with friends and family. But it can also be an extremely busy season.

    Now that all of the holiday rush is winding down, why not take some time for yourself, and stay in? There is so much fantastic content available to you with your library card that you don't even have to leave to house to access!

    Enjoy an eBook

    Borrow an eBook from Overdrive with your library card. With more and more nonfiction available, there is truly something for everyone. And have you heard? Penguin has just recently made over fifteen thousand of their US titles available to Canadian libraries! This includes many big-name authors such as Ken Follett, Khaled Hosseini, Tom Clancy, Nora Roberts, and Charlaine Harris.

    Or if you're travelling, why not borrow a travel guide in eBook format? It's so handy, and there are lots to choose from. You can even bring a phrasebook eBook to help you with the local lingo.

    If eBooks are new to you, join a library program for a demo or some hands-on troubleshooting. You can also browse the Getting Started with Overdrive page for videos and step-by-step instructions.

    Browse an eMagazine

    Maybe browsing a magazine is more your speed at the moment. Don't miss out on the fantastic database Zinio. There are over 350 titles you can borrow & download. Once you have them, you can always browse them later!

    These types of databases are increasingly popular (and expensive, through an individual subscription!), so take a look and don't miss out.
