Fall 2016

The Teen Book Discussion Series that begins September 15th.  Passenger by Alexandra Bracken is currently available to the first 10  to sign up for the discussion.  The group chose Tiber Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson for the October 20th discussion.  Copies will be available at the September 15th book discussion.  The group will chose the book for November and December at the September meeting; join us and help us chose.

Due to popular demand, TWC (Teen Writers Club) begins on Thursday, September 22nd 5-6:30 pm.  Drop into the Story/Craft corner on the 2nd floor Junior Department or register online at Danbury Library Events.  We will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month all year round.

If you are 16 years old, you may be interested in the UFO program on October 15th.  Sign-up for 16 year old and above will be available in September.  Meanwhile check this out.

 

Looking for Book Trailers

Many of you have seen some of the book trailers on Amazon.  Maryjo, a part-time librarian who works at both the Junior and Adult desks, created a book trailer for her graduate course.  This reminded me that I had a teen program a few years back where we created book trailers.  Have any of you created book trailers that I could use on our web page?  Contact me, Mrs. Harrigan, at 203-797-4528 or email.  I would like to explore posting videos trailers on the web page.    

Drivers Tests

If you are taking the drivers' test soon, you might want to check out the DMV Practice Tests.  This is a free learning resource, covering every section of your State’s current driver handbook.  There is absolutely no cost at all for anyone to take the practice tests, and they are available anytime--and mobile friendly--so students can study whenever they can, and at their own pace.

Don't forget to browse the NEW book selection in Fiction and  Non-Fiction.

Remote Access Services

    

Sign-up for free by using your Danbury Library Card.  Download eBooks and streaming TV and Movies.  If you enjoy audio-books, Hoopla is the place for you.  It's free, easy and you can access from any device.  There are also non-fiction books available at eSebco Library, and OneClickDigital.
