eBooks for Kids!

The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids. Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children's section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid's eReading Room.


Athens Book Club Selections

The Athens Book Group is starting 2014 off with a number of great books.  The Book Group selections for the coming months are:
 October 27, 2014        Back When We Were Grownups by Anne Tyler
One morning, a woman wakes up and realizes she has turned into the wrong person.  The woman is Rebecca Davitch, a fifty-three-year-old grandmother.  Is she really this joyous and outgoing organizer of parties, the put-upon heart of her dead husband's extended family? What happened to her quiet and serious nineteen-year-old self, and what would have happened if she'd married her college sweetheart?  Is she an imposter in her own life?  She asks herself.  Is it indeed her own life?  Or is it someone else’s? Can someone ever recover the person they've left behind?
The Athens Book Group meets in the basement of the D.R. Evarts Library on the last Monday of every month from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.  We encourage you to join us for an evening of good company and lively discussion.
