Your hometown libraries are true pioneers and are breaking virtual ground this winter. Starting November 13 and running through the end of February 2013, you'll have the option to participate in our first ever Winter Read!
The PLS Winter Read doesn't require you to come to any special events. In fact, should the roads get bad you can do it all from home! All you'll need to do is visit http://www.justsoyouknow.us/winterread and register to start tracking your winter reads.
When you register be sure to sign up for the special Winter Read eNewsletter that will have announcements of hometown library Winter Read events, local book groups and our online selection of books we will be discussing on Facebook.
Oh! Did we mention PRIZES? For those who register and keep track of their winter reads, they will be entered in to a drawing for 1 of 4 Winter Read gift baskets.
Gateway to Korea
The Norman Public Library is bringing Korean tradition halfway around the world into its doors for the program “Gateway to Korea,” at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, in the Lowry Room of the library.
The Norman Korean Language School is partnering with the library on the program, which will celebrate Korean culture.
Guests can learn about KPop music, have their photos taken in traditional Korean wedding outfits and also sample a variety of Korean food.
November eReader Classes
This November and December your hometown libraries are offering free classes for those wanting to know more about eReaders and especially how to get free books from the public library.
eReader models discussed will include Kindles, Nooks, Sonys, iPads, Laptops and even smart phones! Basically, if you have an internet capable device you have access to library books and we'll explain it.
