The newest installment of the Big Library Read officially kicks off this week, giving you an opportunity to join the world’s largest “global eBook club.” For the next two weeks, October 13 - October 28, 2014, you can read or listen to Anatomy of a Misfit by best-selling author Andrea Portes without any wait lists or holds.
A couple of times a year, the celestial bodies align so that the earth's shadow obscures the moon. The shadow will move across the moon starting just after midnight Mountain Time. The eclipse will be full around 1:46 a.m. and then the moon will emerge from shadow about 3 a.m. The moon will turn a deep reddish color during the eclipse. Lunar eclipses are safe to look at directly. You're looking at the moon, not the sun. It can be viewed with the naked eye or binoculars.
As part of the Big Library Read program, we will be featuring the eBook Keys to the Kitchen by Food Network star Aida Mollenkamp.
Starting February 17, and concluding Tuesday, March 4, 2014. During this reading period, Aida’s comprehensive reference guide to becoming a more accomplished, adventurous cook will be available for every library-card holder that wishes to read it — no holds, no waitlists.
By participating in the Big Library Read, you can join a global movement of passionate readers and library customers who support the availability of eBooks at your local library.
Every two weeks, free tracks from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings and Classical Music Library are offered.
This week (the week of January 28, 2014) the Smithsonian Folkways Recording is Pete Seeger's Buffalo Gals in honor of Pete Seeger's passing at age 94 on Monday, January 27, 2014.
Pete Seeger's life, music, and legacy encapsulate nearly a century of American history and culture. He has immersed himself in folk music and used it, like Johnny Appleseed, to "plant the seeds of a better tomorrow in the homes across our land." The songs in this collection of 139 American Favorite Ballads narrate tales of ordinary people and their extraordinary deeds, and show Pete at the crossroads of the past and the future putting his own stamp on America's folk song heritage while bequeathing it to generations to come.
iOS 7 has been released, and many of you Apple users may have upgraded your device or will be upgrading in the near future.
If you're already using library eBooks on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, your Overdrive Media Console app will fail when trying to open a library eBook.
A fix is in the works, but in the meantime, the immediate remedy is re-authorize the app with your Adobe ID. If that doesn't work, the next step is to uninstall and re-install Overdrive Media Console app which will also require you to re-authorize with Adobe. IMPORTANT NOTE: A re-install will clear the bookshelf, history, and app settings from the app.
Your Bookshelf of checked-out eBooks will still be available from your eMedia Account so you can re-download any titles you still have checked out.
