Vagabond Librarians Day 2: ebook Boogaloo

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a mold spore.
-T.S. Eliot (paraphrased)

Oh, you expected Ms. Barrow’s jolly platitudes? Ah. Right.

(clears throat)

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Vagabond Librarians! Strangely, it is almost business as usual here, with textbooks and laptops flying out the lack of doors. There is no Quiet Floor (and very little quiet), but there’s still a lot of studying going on.

Yesterday Ms. Barrows talked about how a library is more than its space or its books. I certainly agree, and I also wanted to talk about how we still have plenty of good old-fashioned library books available to borrow and read – just maybe not in the format you’re most familiar with.

As you may know, the library has 18 Kindles available, with an archive of over 200 books. What you probably don’t know is we have 12 brand new Kindles, especially intended for Junior School borrowers. We’ve also purchased over 50 new Kindle books, now available on said Kindles. And while they may be tagged JSchool, I think the books will be appealing to a wide range of readers.

Titles include: The Maze Runner, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, The Hobbit, DivergentGraceling, EnclaveThe Wee Free Men, Black Hole SunLeviathan, and Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series. 

And – as always – if there’s anything you’d like to read on the Kindles, let us know and we’ll see what we can do! So come on in and read something.

Non-Library Moments In Heath Today You May Have Missed: Triple Trio singing “And So It Goes”  to Ms. Calderone in the Bookstore,  someone playing “Call Me Maybe” and “Payphone” on the piano in the Weismann Room. There are definite benefits to being more centrally located.
