Learning about the ColorNOOK Devices The eReader Petting Zoo! The 1st NOOK Checkout!


Check out a NOOK

The library has purchased six NOOKs that people can check out and take home!  Each ColorNOOK has 97 titles preloaded on the device, including popular fiction, westerns, romance, mystery, thrillers, young adult titles, children’s books, and a few non-fiction titles.  Check out a NOOK and read a variety of books during the two week check-out period!

Would you like to check out a NOOK?  Ask us about it!  You will need to take a short training, sign a User Agreement form, and put the eReader on hold (or take it with you if it is available).  When one of the eReaders is available, we will call you to come and check it out.  Those that were trained during GATE Night and whose names were drawn to check out the NOOK first were Aaron Astleford, Fred Miller, Kathleen Appleby, Margie Appelman, Mary Ellen Earles, and Pam Searcy!

More eBook Choices available to Download through the Library

The GATE Project will also provide more ebooks available for downloading through the library’s NEIBORS program.  If you own an eReader, you will have more choices and a shorter wait time to check out eBooks through the library (no charge!)  The books we will be able to purchase through GATE will triple the ebooks that are available only to our patrons.
