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:
April 28, 2014- The River of Doubt by Candice Millard
The River of Doubt is a black, uncharted tributary of the Amazon that snakes through one of the most treacherous jungles in the world.  After his humiliating election defeat in 1912, Roosevelt set his sights on the most punishing physical challenge he could find, the first descent of an unmapped, rapids-choked tributary of the Amazon.  Together with his son Kermit and Brazil's most famous explorer, Candido Mariano da Silva Rondo, Roosevelt accomplished a feat so great that many at the time refused to believe it.  In the process, he changed the map of the western hemisphere forever.  Along the way, Roosevelt and his men faced an unbelievable series of hardships.  The River of Doubt brings alive these extraordinary events in a powerful nonfiction narrative thriller that happens to feature one of the most famous Americans who ever lived.
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.
