It’s that time of the year when you may be giving and receiving presents from friends and family. Some of those presents may be in the form of a new eReader device, tablet, or smartphone which has infinite possibilities to entertain and an equal number to stress you out! Even if you are familiar with your current eReader or device, upgrading still takes a while to get used to. All those changes require a learning curve, and it can be frustrating, discouraging, and downright terrifying to try to figure it all out alone. You are not the only one to feel this way! Please stop by and visit with us at the library or call 920-294-3572 to make an appointment with a staff member for help setting up your new device and brief overview on how to navigate through your settings and options.

We also have a variety of library apps that can be downloaded for free from your device’s app store. Try out Libby by Overdrive to enjoy a large catalog of eBooks, audiobooks, and over 3,000 magazines available for instant use for free. Then try out the Hoopla app to instantly borrow digital movies, music, audiobooks, eBooks, comics, and more all for free with your library card. Do you want to learn a new language? Try out the Mango Languages app. Those are just a few fun options for you to try out, but we have a lot more digital resources on our website to keep you learning and entertained all winter long.

If you still prefer physical books because they just feel right, we have new books coming in for all ages just about every day. DVDs, too. If you aren’t sure what you would like to read next, visit our website at to look through lists of new items and place holds for pickup or come peruse the shelves. Otherwise let us know what you’re interested in, and we would be happy to make suggestions or pull a grab bag of options for you.

The Constant Reader Book Club is set to meet and discuss Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. If you picked up a copy and would like to join the group to discuss your thoughts or just listen to what others have to say, please join the group in the Hickory room on December 14 at 3 pm.
