Library offers new online resources

Posted February 13, 2013 in Community Featured, Norwalk

BookLetters brings the latest information about books, audiobooks and movies directly to your email.

Match your interests with one or more of the e-newsletters, each covering a specific format, genre or topic and receive full descriptions and reviews of current and upcoming titles. There is even a link from the e-newsletter to the library’s catalog to check if a copy is on the shelf.

Sign up for as many e-newsletters as you like — BookLetters is completely free. Your name and e-mail information are confidential, and you can change your preferences any time.

To subscribe to any of the newsletter, simply go to our website, click on Online Resources, and then click on Books and Reading. You will see a link to BookLetters and from there will be able to sign up for your desired e-newsletter. Currently you can receive e-newsletters for New Adult Fiction to the Norwalk Library, Fiction Best Sellers, BookLetters Daily, Books on Air and Nonfiction Best Sellers.  We hope to add more newsletters in the near future.

Learning Express
Provided by the State of Iowa as part of the Work Force Development trainings, the Learning Express database provides unlimited access to interactive skill building courses in math, reading and writing as well as a broad range of practice tests based on official exams such as the ACT, SAT, GED, ASVAB Core and EMT Basic, as well as firefighter, police officer, paramedic, Allied Healthcare, U.S. citizenship, postal worker, cosmetology and real estate agent and broker exams. This valuable service is available 24/7 from any Internet-enabled computer — in your library and even from your home.

Patrons have the option of selecting from more than 130 e-Book titles to help learners of all ages prepare for success. This innovative platform includes self-paced study, instant scoring and diagnostic feedback and can be accessed from any computer that has an Internet connection.

You can access LearningExpress by going to our online resources webpages on our website and clicking on the LearningExpress link. From there, you will be directed to create your own user account to keep track of your lessons, scores, and feedback.

Please do not hesitate to contact the library with any questions for either of these new resources to Norwalk Easter Public Library.
