Greetings, patrons and friends.These words begin with the letter “e”: edify; equality; exemplary; experience; books. Now I know you are saying to yourself, “That goofy cat can’t even spell. If it weren’t for spell check he would be completely lost.” Not so. “E” is for ebooks! Beginning September 20, 2012, Pine River Public Library will begin to offer eBooks to all Kitchigami Library card holders via your e-readers and Smartphones! This is a really big deal. You don’t have to buy these books, just check them out with your library card as you would any other library book. Here’s how:
Go to the Kitchigami website (www.krls.org) or directly to the KRLSDownloadables page (http://krlsdownloadables.wordpress.com). From there, using your library card number and PIN number you will be able to sign up for Cloud Library, find directions for various devices and see the other great downloadable and streaming options that Kitchigami has to offer. If you are having any difficulties, come in to the library and ask for help. I’ll do the best I can to steer you in the right direction. Better yet, ask an actual librarian.
· Saturday, September 15th at the library we have Minnesota Jack Salmela , author of “Of Vikings and Voyageurs”. He will be doing a book talk at 2:00 PM complete with costumed French Voyageur interpreter, Ben Kreidler. This program is brought to you by Minnesota clean water, land, and legacy amendment.
· Saturday, September 22nd at The Warehouse at 2:00 PM will be Carrie Vecchione and Rolf Erdahl, husband and wife instrumental duo, presenting a classical style recital. Learn about classical music including chamber orchestras and symphony orchestras. This is a rare treat and is also brought to you by Minnesota clean water, land, and legacy amendment.
Thank you, Minnesota, for making life in our state an equally edifying and exemplary experience.
Browser, the library cat
