If you are a fan of the “always available” audiobooks provided by RBDigital, they have merged with OverDrive — our main ebook and digital audiobook provider. Instead of needing to search two separate locations (or apps) to find an audiobook, you can find them in one place. If you haven’t tried OverDrive yet, grab their Libby app for free in your device’s app store and take it for a spin. If you need any help, just let us know.

Now is the time to start a journal about living through this global pandemic. It doesn’t need to be anything elaborate or written in any formal way. Imagine one day when your children or grandchildren ask you about what it was like to live during the covid-19 outbreak. What would you tell them? Jot down brief notes about how it feels to live through this. Some day, those notes could be an important legacy to leave for future generations. Write down snippets about day-to-day life. Use an old notebook, a note-keeping app on your phone, store them online (something like Google Docs or email them to yourself), or use social media.
Scientists (and writers) have long known about the therapeutic benefits of writing about personal experiences, thoughts and feelings. But besides serving as a stress-coping mechanism, expressive writing produces many physiological benefits.Jessica Wapner article in Scientific America
Not only will you leave something that might be important in the years to come, but the act of writing in a journal can be therapeutic and help to relieve some of the stress this huge disruption to our day-to-day lives that this pandemic has caused.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the library will remain closed until Monday, March 30th. The due dates for all materials has been extended, so you will not be charged any late fees. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as things change.
We apologize for the sudden closure. Libraries are a vital part of the communities which they serve. Everyday we see patrons from all walks of life and from every demographic imaginable. The risk of spreading this virus into our community is too great to overlook. We want everyone to remain healthy and be back to visit us once it is safe to do so.
If you have not tried our electronic resources, now would be a great time to try them out.

Are you a fan of Netflix’s original movies? They’ve adapted a lot of novels into movies as of late. One of their newest films (which is just in time for Valentine’s Day) is based on Steve Bloom’s YA novel The Stand-In.
This rom-com is a YA novel for grades 10-12 and above.
When Brooks volunteers to be a stand-in date for someone who was stood up for Homecoming, he seizes the opportunity to earn some cash to hire a tutor to help him get into college.
So what if along the way he goes along with a few minor deceptions and cuts a few moral corners? What could be the harm?
Check out the audiobook on RBdigital: whitleyky.rbdigital.com
Or the ebook on OverDrive: kyunbound.overdrive.com
Also available on their apps.
