Tonight there will be lines of Science Fiction Fans waiting outside of movie theatres across the country to be among the first to see John Carter of Mars, Disney's latest film.
Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote Princess of Mars 95 years ago and tonight it will be translated onto the big screen. We've got several copies in print here at the library, but I want to encourage you to download the ebook version. It is available for free on Project Gutenburg.
Why download an ebook version? Well it is a scanned copy of the original 1917 edition of the book. It includes some really gorgeous artwork by Frank Schoonover and while we do own one copy of that 1917 edition, you can't check it out. If you are among the folks waiting in line tonight, you can read the book while you wait. I know I always prefer to read the book first, then see the movie, don't you?
Check in with us and let us know what you thought of the book and the movie!
So Penguin Publishing has changed their rules about eBook lending in libraries, to be via USB only. What this means is that you can only transfer Penguin eBooks to a Kindle using USB - you can't transfer to the Kindle app on another device, such as the iPad. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Save time and frustration while searching the internet by taking the Power Searching with Google class. This is a free six part series of lectures and hands on practice activities that highlight the following list of easy to use tools. I found the translate feature the most interesting. Not only will you see what the words look like when translated, you can hear them too.

So we found out that starting today, Penguin Publishing will no longer sell eBooks to libraries. Penguin eBooks that are currently in our catalog will still be supported, but if you use the Kindle, then you will have to download the eBook to a computer first, and then transfer it to the Kindle via USB - this means you won't be able to get a Penguin eBook from the library via over-the-air delivery. We apologize for the inconvenience.
