"You know when you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend."

The Collector of Lost ThingsThe Collector of Lost Things
by Jeremy Page

Argenta Library

Description:

Inspired by a true story of 19th century European explorers who killed an entire species of a beautiful Penguin-like bird called the Great Auk, in order to sell the carcasses to museums around the world, this is a tale of a young man joining a hunting ship to the Arctic in the hope of finding a remaining live specimen. A historical novel about love, obsession and extinction.


 

E-Readers 101+102!

Due to popular demand, we're doing another e-reader program this month!

In the first hour of this program, we'll go over the basics of using your e-reader and checking out the library's online collection of e-books and audiobooks. Make sure you bring any usernames and passwords associated with your e-reader. For Kindles, this would be your Amazon account. For Nooks, your Barnes & Noble account. For iPads, your Apple account. If you use a laptop at home, you might want to bring that as well, so that you get comfortable using it together with your e-reader.

The second half of the program will be more advanced tips and tricks, like filtering your searches, saving books on your wish list, putting items on hold, downloading in different formats, and changing the settings on your reading platform. Feel free to bring any specific questions you have as well, and we'll do our best to get them answered.

We would appreciate it if you would sign up beforehand and let us know which kind of device you're bringing. Come in or call us to sign up!
