The Fort Dodge Public Library is hosting a Valentine’s Day open house on Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 3:30 – 5 p.m. Bring the kids for an afternoon of crafts, snacks and fun. No registration is needed. We’ll look forward to seeing all of you. The open house is sponsored by the Friends of the Fort Dodge Public Library.
If you’re not a Friend, stop by the Book Shoppe at the library and find out how you can join. While you’re there, browse the great selection of books, puzzles and movies. There’s something for everyone at the Book Shoppe.
We’ve had great success with our Kindle lending program. We have 11 Kindles that are pre-loaded with 30 to 40 titles by popular authors. Kindles are checked out for two weeks, and can be renewed. If you’ve thought about getting an E-reader or tablet, stop by the library and we’ll be happy to show you how to get started.
Check out the new Zinio magazine subscriptions you can download to your computer, tablet, e-reader or phone. All you need is a library card and Internet access. Instructions on how to set up an account are located on our website: http://www1.youseemore.com/nilc/fortdodgepl/contentpages.asp?loc=52.
Rita has been updating our travel books recently. If you’re tired of hearing about polar vortices, perhaps a trip to a warmer climate is in your future. We have some great resources to help you determine where you want to visit and what to see once you’re there. If you can’t get away this year, we have many books to help you manage any cabin fever you’re experiencing.
Don’t forget our Saturday hours have changed. Express Saturdays are available 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. All our regular services are available, although reference is limited. Stop by and grab a couple movies to watch during the weekend. We have added some great new titles.
The Fort Dodge Public Library is open Mondays and Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. We’ll be happy to help you find what you need.
