Nothing will ever replace holding a book in your hands, flipping the pages and reading. Luckily, a new way to read books does not take away from the original. Through OverDrive, the Big Sky Community Library has digital books available to read on a smart device or Kindle, and audiobooks that can be listened to on a smart device whenever.
Books on CD open up another listening option. Check them out at the library and take them on upcoming road trips. We have recently ordered a number of new books on CD. In teen fiction, the new John Green book “Turtles All the Way Down” is available. In biographies and memoirs, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book “What Happened” is her take on what happened during her campaign, and “Grant” by Ron Chernow explores the life of Ulysses S. Grant over 38 CDs for those with a long drive planned. Dan Brown’s new book “Origin” is also available at the library. There are books on CD available for all ages—just ask a librarian.
In other news, put the scholastic book fair on your calendar, Nov. 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Nov. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the elementary school gym.
