The Big Library Read is Almost Here!

Big Library Read is the first-ever “global eBook club,” connecting people around the world who read the same eBook (or listen to the audiobook) at the same time! The new selection is The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti! Here's a quick summary from the publisher:

A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn't mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie's life. It's a huge risk — but it's just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.

October 12-26, 2017, unlimited copies of the book (including an audiobook edition) are available for checkout through OverDrive! Just visit Delco.Overdrive.com (you'll need a Delaware County Libraries card for this one), and borrow the Big Library Read today!

The Library's Latest Arrival

One of the most frequent requests we receive in the library is for additional charging stations for iPads, Kindles, and other devices. We aim to please, so we are happy to welcome a new five-port charging dock to the library! This brand new charging station will be located on the counter just inside the library entrance. Please help yourself to a jolt of juice whenever your device is running low!
