…and this is the end, there ain’t no more.

For those of you that I’ve known over the past years (and to those of you I’ve never met – either in-person or otherwise), a great goodbye to you!

see you later

Hey guys,

Sooo, a little bird told me that the Maple Library has a few openings for teens to volunteer in the Tech Savvy (aka. Beyond the Basics) program.  How this program works is that you – the teen – would be matched with an adult learner to meet with one-on-one and teach them how to use various types of social networking and other ‘new’ online activities (such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube).

techLooks good on a resume and is a fun experience – kinda nice having the tables turned and being the teacher instead of the student! =)

Anywho, if you’re interested, please fill out the application and hand it in at Maple Library.

If this program sounds like something you’d be keen on but you don’t live in or near Maple, this program is also run at Dufferin Clark, Bathurst Clark, Pierre Berton, and Woodbridge Library – so go ahead and talk to your your librarian at one of those other locations.

Hey you! Yeah you. Wanna free audiobook? Cause I know where you can get ‘em. Lots of them. All of them good. Interested?

Thought so.

It’s easy and like I said, it’s free. The best part about it is that you get to keep the audiobooks for as long as you want. No due date, no fines. Just yours to keep.

AudioFile Presents SYNC: Young Adult Lit For Your Earbuds

 SYNC is a truly invaluable program that releases two audiobooks every week for 14 weeks. Reader’s Theatre is in session all summer long and it is the hottest ticket in town that you don’t have to cough up big bucks to be a part of. Every week one YA and one Classic or School Reading List Recommendation title will go live for you to download to whatever device of your choosing. But they are only available for download for that week so don’t wait until the last minute!

All you have to do is download the OVERDRIVE app onto your device, select the title you want each week, plug in some headphones, and press play. It’s so simple it’s foolproof. You can also sign up for weekly notifications via email so that you won’t miss out on snagging that title that you have always wanted to read.

The selected titles for Week 1 are: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl and Rebecca by Daphne Du Mauier

I’ve gone through every sound clip offered and I am impressed with the quality of the formats offered. Engaging voices, gripping stories, background soundtracks; it’s like watching a movie in your mind…but you can hear the voices!

I cannot wait for Week 5 to snag the Dracula (Full Cast) edition. Do you have any idea how awesome this version is? No? Well you’re going to find out!

I’m so excited right now I feel like I’m on Oprah. Jump around people, get excited!!!!!

You get free books! And you get a free book! Everybody gets FREE AUDIOBOOKS!
