News Enthusiasts

Have you read the news?

Dear News “Enthusiasts,”

Here’s your kicker: September is Library Card sign-up month! And, newsflash, it’s September!

But what does that card get you? How about unlimited access to the news of the world! You need to know what’s being exported from New Dehli and who's marching into New Orleans. Human interest stories, editorials, investigative reporting, even the fluffiest of candy floss fluff. You want it all! You crave copy. Paper. Digital. It doesn’t matter. Let’s face it, you care about what’s “above the fold” as much as what’s considered “above board.” 

Some call you the “J” word … “Junkie.” A “News Junkie” that is. We will never call you that! You are a "News Enthusiast!" The Library is your refuge. We love you! We accept your habit. In fact, we’ve got you’re next fix. You might even say, we encourage your so called affliction.

Your Library Card gives you access to:

Fake News? Fact Checking? We’ve got the data:

Love

A Library for Lovers

Atabong, what's that you say? Summer lovin', had you a blast? And Dada, you say summer lovin' happened so fast? Sounds so very familiar!

Wait! Before reading the rest of this post, let’s set the mood with some silky-smooth jazz from our Naxos Music Library. Now, please, continue reading.

For some, summer is a celebration of love. It’s recognizing and appreciating all the hard work that goes into achieving and maintaining a successful relationship. You love each other. You are committed to each other. Attraction? Oh yeah! Yet, that’s not enough is it? Some say you’ve got to work at a relationship. Why? Because you have to love each other enough to get past those moments you don’t like each other!

That’s where we come in. Your Library Card can be more powerful than a box of chocolates and definitely better than a Dear John letter.

Our idea of a good date? Believe it or not, a Librarian is better than eHarmony. True! Trust us, the Library has what you need to create a summer of love:

  1. Do your research. There’s some good stuff in those steamy romance novels. Get some “informal” learning with eBooks and eAudiobooks from Axis 360.
  2. Get “scentual.” No, we didn’t misspell “sensual.” We’re talkin’ aromatherapy! Learn olfactory optimization with a Universal Class.
  3. Greet your partner with “Je t'aime,” “Te amo,” “Abdi bogoh ka anjeun” and a kiss! Where did you get so worldly? That’s right, Mango Languages.
  4. Croon. Lynda lessons will help you lyricize your love song.
  5. If they don’t get the hint, look for inspiration together from magazines like Cosmopolitan with eMagazines from RBdigital.
  6. In the end, entertainment. Stream independent films, shorts and documentaries from around the world. InstantFlix and chill.

Good luck! ;)

Conference rooms?

Let's say you've got a group of 10 - 18 people getting together to exchange porridge recipes. A meeting room that hosts up to 150 people is just too big! What about a 6 person study room? Well, there are fire codes! And, what if somebody forgets to wear their deodorant?! Don't worry! We have the solution: The conference room! Not too big. Not too small. Just right.

Road Trip Selfie

Create Your Travel Tale

Syd, it's time to travel! Why?

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”

~ Ibn Battuta

Your Library Card can lead to an epic odyssey! 

All successfully happy travelers know the secret to adventure-awesomeness: planning. 

Step 1. Get strategic and tactical! 

Sometimes it's easier to break the whole into more manageable parts. 

Navigation

  • Get a Road Atlas. Seriously Syd, do you remember that tumultuous trek across Tennessee in '14? Remember how you were going to use your phone for navigation? Recall how there was a "no-service area" for, oh what, 3 and a half hours?! Never again.
  • Snag a Travel Guide (again, no phone reception!) Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, Fodors, Eyewitness and more guarantee you'll tailor your trip to your tastes.     

Entertainment

  • Music! Every road trip needs a soundtrack!!! When "future Syd" hears that song that takes him back to the sights and smells of this roadie, he'll thank you! Will you have phone reception? If so, our streaming music services are the way to go. No service? No worries! good old-fashioned CDs are still available for checkout. ;)
  • An audiobook. Remember how Listening to Will Wheaton voicing Ready Player One got you from here to Dallas and back a couple years ago? Get them in pretty much any format you want, even an eAudiobook.
  • Snackage. You're going to get hungry and the stops are sometimes few and far between. Our advice? Snack-up
  • Have a contingency plan for that abomination your hotel is calling "cable." eMagazine and eNewspapers will give you a solid alternative.
  • Make sure you've viewed this travel tutorial at least once before hitting the open road. :D

Step 2. Pick up your holds from your favorite location.

Step 3. Roll.

Library's gone to the dogs

Dog Gone Library for Pets

Bandit and Mr. Pickles, something tells us you know May is National Pet month! 

Who's a good boy! No seriously. Which one of you is the good boy who knows to go outside to take care of business and which one of you "made" on the carpet. No, the Library will not clean this up for your owner! But, with a Library Card anybody can access Consumer Reports and get the (poop) scoop on carpet stain removers.

But Bandit and Mr. Pickles, we don't blame you. You've had to learn so much. You've had to learn that shoes are not chew toys. You've learned that while it's OK for humans to yap nonstop, barking nonstop isn't considered "cool." And that even though you NOW there is something pretty amazing to be discovered just a few feet under the back yard, no digging. No, no, no! Well why can't your human learn how to tell you what the "rules" are up front?! Why not have them take our Pet and Animal Care course via Universal Class? Or why not checkout a Dog Training DVD? You could watch it together! In fact, why not make it a double feature? Better yet, a triple feature? Is there such thing as a quadruple feature? BenjiMarley & Me? The Adventures of Milo and Otis101 Dalmatians?

Bandit and Mr. Pickles, just remember these words of wisdom:

  • The average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
  • If you want the best seat in the house…you’ll have to move the dog. 
  • Every dog will have its day!
