Novel Destinations

Brutus is enjoying this year's teen and adult summer reading program. He has been traveling all over the world by reading about other countries (and the dogs who live there). Never having gone past obedience school, he also needs an atlas to show him where these countries are. Right now he is looking for a book about a European dog, and planning to stowaway on Margaret's upcoming trip to China. If he can't go again this year, he may just have to clean off her desk while she's gone! (Margaret's note: If Brutus knows what is good for him, he will leave my desk alone. Chewed up folders, papers, etc. is not the same as cleaning. If he wants my desk cleaner, he needs to help with the work instead of creating a bigger mess).

Brutus Learns about Downloadable Books

Brutus was thrilled to hear about the library's new subscription to Overdrive which provides downloadable audio and e-books. It is so difficult to turn pages and change CDs without a thumb! (Now if he could just master the computer keyboard). There is still time to sign up for the 7 p.m. Wednesday evening program on how this works. It is available to anyone with a valid resident or fee-based non-resident card, but you do need to contact the library to set up a PIN and learn how to access your account.
