We will be celebrating (quietly, of course) “Read an eBook Day” Sept. 18. Our new consortium logo “Bridges” replaces the old one (Wilbor), but is more user friendly. We offer business cards and pamphlets for help in accessing over 20,000 eBooks and more than 8,000 audiobooks to chose from for FREE!
Also, we are celebrating “Banned Books Week”, Sept. 21-26 to emphasize our rights to intellectual freedom in the form of speech and/or print! The theme this year is “Defend the Freedom to Read…..It’s Everybody’s Job!” So visit your local Library and exercise your freedom!
