We usually think of the Delaware County District Library’s summer reading program in terms of young children, but did you know we have some great, fun programs just for teens? Teen Librarians Mandy Henning and Becky Woodruff have developed entertaining but educationally sound (just between us!) programs, guaranteed to be enjoyed by Delaware’s teens.
“Every Hero Has a Story,” Delaware County District Library’s summer reading program is in full swing, and already thousands of kids have registered to participate. While your children don’t need to register to attend any of the programs or to read throughout the summer, if they are registered, they become eligible for some great rewards.
The Delaware County District Library’s 2014 Annual Report is now available at all Library locations, and I want to thank you, Delaware, for helping to make 2014 another banner year for us! Last year, you checked out more than 1.4 million items, including downloaded eBooks, DVD’s, audio books and adult, teen and children’s books. Of that total, nearly 70% of the items checked out were books—we’re clearly still very much in the book business.
A few weeks ago, I explained how you could keep a list of the books and other items you have checked out from the Delaware County District Library by opting into “Reading History” on your Library card account. I have had several people thank me for letting them know about this feature, that I use frequently.
The Powell Branch Library is breaking out of the stacks this summer and taking programming to local businesses in Powell. Branch Associate Amber Imbrogno established a relationship with the Powell Village Winery, which will serve as the host for the Powell Branch Library’s Wine Book Club. Imbrogno started the book club after looking to join various book clubs but couldn’t find one discussing titles she would be interested in reading.
As hard as it is to believe, schools are about to recess for the summer, and that event triggers the beginning of Delaware County District Library’s Summer Reading Club for kids of all ages. This year’s theme is "Every Hero Has a Story," and the fun begins on May 30th at all Library locations.
Sometimes in the course of your daily world, you may find it necessary to have the use of several computers for training purposes. Your business may be in need of a site to hold a small computer class to train several employees, or you may need to familiarize several people with the same software at the same time.
The Delaware County District Library staff are avid readers. We like sharing and talking about what we read almost as much as we like reading. Our patrons enjoy discussing books with us and knowing what we like and disliked. The books staff select for the “Staff Picks” display truly fly off the shelves!
