Welcome to our new web site!  We hope you like the new design and will let us know what you think.   Books, Movies and More is the place where we'll share what we're reading, what we're watching, and what's new in the library for all the readers, movie-goers, and music-lovers out there.

eReaders @ the LibraryNOOK eReader

Are you curious about digital, downloadable books and all the talk about eBooks and eReaders?  Not sure whether or not this is for you?  Now you can literally check out an eReader from the library.  Take one home and try it out in the comfort of your own home.
