What's Up at the Library?
Heading out soon for your summer vacation? A.H. cardholders can choose from over a hundred different magazine titles and have them delivered right to their PC or mobile device for free by using Zinio, the library's digital magazine service. Better still, there's no due dates or borrowing limits to worry about. Visit our eBooks and Downloads page to learn more about using Zinio or we'll show you how at one of our tech skills sessions:
It's summertime and the reading is easy when you use our 3M Cloud Library service. It works with iPads and iPhones, Android devices (including Kindle Fire), Nook, Kobo and PC/Mac. Browse and check out eBooks from our 3M Cloud Library web portal or from your device. Download the 3M Cloud Library app.
Join other local business owners for the next Business Book Club session. We'll be discussing Andrew Macarthy's bestseller, 500 Social Media Marketing Tips: Essential Advice, Hints and Strategy for Business: Facebook, Twitter, Google +, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram and More. Come share what works for you and what doesn't. Refreshments provided. Pick up a copy of the book now in the Business Center.
Did you know that now you can check whether the library has a book while browsing Amazon and other websites by using our new "Check AHML" bookmarklet? The bookmarklet lets you know whether a title is available at the library and checks all the editions of the title, not just the edition you're looking at. Get the "Check AHML" bookmarklet, and simply drag the button to your browser's "bookmarks" bar. It's that easy!
We have classes for all of your tech needs and interests. A. H. cardholders may now register for September-October free sessions. Call 847-392-0100 or register online. See the events calendar for class dates and descriptions.

Life Readers: Classics Study Group
Led by a Newberry Library Independent Scholar, this serious group will focus on close textual analysis of A Dance to the Music of Time by Anthony Powell. For anyone who is interested in studying serious books in a group setting, this group will help participants to understand the classics in context, with each discussion supplemented by biographical, historical, and critical information.
This group's members supply their own books. Because of the differences in various editions or translations, it is important to read the editions listed on the supplied reading list. Register and pick up your reading list information at any time at the Info Desk in the library. Participants may join for all books, or for separate titles. Questions? Call the Info Desk, 847-392-0100.
