You now have more eBook choices through our newest eBook service, Axis 360. Click on the Axis 360 icon and you'll be taken to the Axis 360's Magic Wall. There you can check out and download up to three eBooks at a time and can choose to check out the eBooks between 1 and 21 days. The collection includes books for adult, teens, and children. Most of the eBooks include two formats to choose from, ePub and Blio. The Blio format can only be read on the Blio app and this app can be downloaded to your computer, tablet, and smart phone. The ePub format eBooks can be downloaded to Adobe Digital Editions and then copied to an eReader, like the Nook or Sony Reader. You can also download the ebook app called axisReader. This app lets you search, check out, download, and read ePub format eBooks from our Axis 360 collection. Unfortunately, at this time, you cannot download these eBooks to any e-ink Kindle eReaders. Those with a Kindle Fire tablet, though, will be able to download the Blio app. Let us know if you have any questions.
It will be summer soon and time to enjoy all the excitement and adventure that is the Brookings Public Library's Summer Reading Programs. Dig into Reading is the theme for the Children's program, Beneath the Surface is the Teen program, and Groundbreaking Reading is the adult theme.
Due to the number of snow make-up days the school district has to contend with, registration for the Library’s SRPs begin on Tuesday, May 28 at 3:30 pm. That’s a change from our usual 10:00 start, so make a note - registration starts at 3:30 pm on the 28th.
