June 21st marks the first official day of Summer, and Summer means road trips! Wherever you go, remember to take the library with you!
*Flipster Magazines is another library resource that’s great for travel. Imagine, sitting on the beach, reading the latest Health, People, Southern Living, or Sports Illustrated. Older issues are also available. An unlimited number of Flipster magazines can be downloaded for free with your library card via the Flipster app on your device, or viewed at our website.*Travel books are a great way to prepare for your vacation! Our collection includes traditional guides, such as Fodor’s and Frommer’s, for destinations all over the world. There are also multiple books of tips and tricks written by seasoned travellers. Not comfortable bringing a library book on vacation? Try an ebook! Ebook travel guides are perfect for travellers who don’t want to carry a lot of extra baggage, or who don’t want to be spotted as tourists.
*Don’t forget to sign up for the Summer reading program before leaving for your trip! This year, we have introduced a “points” system. Downloading an ebook or audiobook, reading a magazine on Flipster, and exploring a library database are all ways to earn points! Reading books is still part of the program, but now you can even get points for visiting parks and museums! The program is open to all ages, and you only have to earn ten points to be entered into the raffle for a Kindle Fire, iPad, or bike, depending on your age group!
