PCTI Media Centers December Update

What's New in the Libraries

Celebrating Reading--both in print and electronically

The PCTI Libraries have over 32,000 books, which include more than 9,000 e-books that can be read on e-readers, computers, tablets, Chromebooks, and even smartphones. There are many non-fiction titles that are excellent research resources, and we recently added books for recreational reading using Overdrive. (See below). All of the titles can be found in the online catalog. Please remind any and all readers to come and try an ebook or borrow a print book.

PCTI is once again participating in voting for the Garden State Teen Book Awards. This annual election allows NJ teen readers to choose the best books each year. Ballots and a ballot box are available in the F Wing Media Center. We also have a display of the 30 books nominated for this year's awards. Last year, PCTI's votes had a definite impact on the winning titles. Let's choose the winners again!

OverDrive is now at PCTI!

Are you an e-book fan? Ebooks can be read on e-readers (like Kindles and Nooks), tablets, chromebooks, and even phones. PCTI now subscribes to Overdrive, and we have purchased 250 titles to begin our collection. Titles include the very popular "The Fault in our Stars", "The Maze Runner", "I Hunt Killers", Victor Cruz's "Out of the Blue", and many of the books that have been chosen as among the Top Teen Titles of 2014. Multiple copies are available for each title, and we regularly purchase more copies as needed. So, if your favorite isn't available, place a hold, and the hold is usually filled within 24 hours. Overdrive is available on the library webpage.
