What’s Happening at the Library
The library is now open with reduced hours to limit the spread of COVID-19. Mask are required for entry:
The Digital Big Library Read continues through August 17th. Cambridge City Public Library patrons can join millions of others around the globe in reading a historical fiction thriller e-book or audiobook during Big Library Read. From August 3 -17, readers can borrow and read Tim Mason’s “intellectually stimulating and viscerally exciting” The Darwin Affair from their public library. Readers can solve the mystery from home – with a valid library card and no waiting – by downloading the Libby app or by visiting https://iddc.overdrive.com/
The program is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for popular e-books, audiobooks and magazines. You can also enter a sweepstakes between August 3rd and August 17th to win a 32GB 8” Samsung Galaxy Tablet by sharing on social media using the hashtag #BigLibraryRead about your participation in the Big Library Read.
Participation in the Big Library Read is free. The program runs for three weeks and only requires a library name and a library card number to get started. For help installing the Libby app or accessing Overdrive, please give us a call at 765-478-3335.
Even though our library “official” hours are shortened currently, we are available to families with children that need Internet access to be successful with the Virtual Learning program. Families can call us at 765-478-3335 to schedule time to use the wireless Internet inside our library, and—if demand is light--we can offer socially distanced spaces for you to work, even when we are closed to the general public.
A parent or caregiver will need to be present to guide their children with virtual learning, and parents will not be able to drop their children off at the library.
Children’s Librarian Kim Scott will resume posting virtual story times to our Facebook page on Wednesday, August 5th, so stay tuned for some fun adventures in reading for the young people in your family.
