Tonight seems like it might be the perfect night for a bonfire! One of the good things when the change from summer to fall happens. Reading a book next to a bonfire is good too. Stop by the library tomorrow to grap a book from the New Fiction, Romance, Mystery or SciFi/ Fantasy displays. We still have the Recommended by your Neighbors display, check out what favorites were read during the Summer Reading Program! Hopefully, tomorrow night is as cool as it is tonight so you can enjoy the evening air! Happy Reading!

I’d rather Listen! September 9, 2016

Are you going on a trip in the car this weekend? What about walking at the park or going hiking? Have you ever thought about taking a book, not to read but to listen to? I have a 5 hour drive to see my parents when I go home for the holidays, so I always stock up on audiobooks. I also try and go on walks at the parks and around my neighborhood. I also use the Hoopla and OverDrive applications on my phone to listen to books. In addition, Hoopla has a variety of music albums that can be listened to.

Come check out the New Audiobook display, or the ones in the general collection here in the library. We have a Playaway collection too.

Need help getting familiar to the Hoopla and OverDrive applications? A staff member at the reference desk can assist you or use the Digital Library page to find instructions for your device.

Have fun reading, or rather listening!

Happy Labor Day! September 2, 2016

Do you know why we celebrate Labor Day? Growing up, it was an extra day off of school and a time for family parties. Labor Day was first observed on Tuesday, September 5, 1882 in New York City. Twelve years later President Grover Cleveland signed into law that the first Monday in September was designated a legal holiday for federal employees. For most, it may be extra day to be with family and friends, but it can also be time to finish reading a summer book or catch up on T.V. shows before the fall season begins. Regardless the reason, come on into the library and grab a book to read or a T.V. show to watch. Remember, RRPL will be closed Sunday and Monday in observance of Labor Day but back to the usual fall schedule Tuesday at 9am.

What an odd summer it has been for the weather. If you would like to get more in-tune with your inner meteorologist, take a look at some of our weather related books, just wander over to the 551.5s in the nonfiction section. If all this heat is not your thing, jump to 919.8 for some Arctic expeditions to cool down.  Soon you will be so knowledgeable about the weather that you will be setting up a green screen and wowing friends and family with your daily weather reports!

August already!!? August 5, 2016

Yikes, I can’t believe August is upon us already! Although summer will be winding down, there are still things to be excited about. The Olympics start this week, the Indians are still in first in the Central, and if you are a fair lover the Cuyahoga County Fair starts Monday. If you are feeling adventurous and looking for the perfect way to wrap up the summer, check out our “August is American Adventures Month” display for some great ideas.
