Douglas County Libraries in Colorado are publishing an ongoing report of pricing for bestselling print and ebooks. It clearly illustrates how libraries are being charged as much as six times the consumer price for ebooks, as well as the fact that many titles are unavailable because some publishers refuse to sell ebooks to the library market.
Here’s a link to the full article as well as the report in pdf format.
MPL is offering a reading program, Tales That Wag, for young children to age 12 on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. until noon. One-on-one sessions give your child the opportunity to have the undivided attention of the dog and its handler. Participants can earn a new book of their own to keep after reading to a dog for four sessions.
Paws Hand Delivered is a local, nationally registered and approved therapy dog/handler group. They have developed a program in which your child will spend a period of 7 to 10 minutes reading to one of the dogs in the library.
There is no charge for the program, however, your child will need written permission to participate.
We hope to see you for a tail wagging good time!
