Teen Photo Program

The Glencoe Public Library and the Glencoe Historical Society are sponsoring a photo program for students in 6th through 9th grades called My Place: How I See Glencoe to unearth the mysteries of Glencoe in pictures and see how it has changed over the years.  The project will culminate with a photo exhibition to be displayed at the Fourth of July Art Fair on the Village Green.

Meetings will take place Wednesday and Friday afternoons from June 16 through July 2 (1-3 pm).  The first meeting will be held at the Glencoe Library and pizza will be served.  Registration is required.  For more information, contact the library.



Coming Soon - Check Out Ebooks to your Ereaders

You've been asking for a way to check out ebooks to your ereaders so we'll soon be offering a solution.  My Media Mall is a database coming to our library in May, and it will allow you to check out ebooks to ereaders such as Sony Readers, Nook and more (unfortunately, it does not work with the Kindle).  Ebooks can be checked out for two weeks.  My Media Mall will also offer audiobooks for checkout to your Ipods and other mp3 players.

For more information on My Media Mall ask at the reference desk, or attend our May 18 Technology Tuesday program on Ebooks and Ereaders, where we will demonstrate how to check out ebooks from My Media Mall to a Sony Reader.  All Technology Tuesday programs meet at 7:00.



It's National Library Week!

April 11-17 is National Library Week, and the theme this year is Communities Thrive @ Your Library.  This slogan hits home for us, as we feel lucky to be a part of one of most supportive communities around!  For more information about National Library Week visit the American Library Association's I Love Libraries website.
