Winter Reading

Activities are fairly quiet this month but the library is still a good place to find some warmth. Teen Book Club will be hosting one of our favorite authors on the 20th. April Lurie will be stopping by to discuss her book The Less-Dead. Please join us!! Teen Book Club is followed by the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). These discussion are open to everyone and help form future events.

Some other recommended reads for your Winter vacation are April Lurie's Brothers, Boyfriends and Other Criminal Minds. Divergent by Veronica Roth is very popular. Jane has ordered more copies of The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Also on order is the newest book in The Tiger's Curse series: Tiger's Voyage by Colleen Houck, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and The Future of Us by Jay Asher. They will be available soon!

The Round Rock Public Library has recently introduced BookMyne.  This is an app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with busy library users in mind. An Android version is scheduled to be released later this year. With this app you can search the library's catalog or even scan a barcode on the book cover, then search for it in the library. A few clicks later you can put the books on hold or check your account, even renew checked-out books. You can browse best-sellers and lists of award-winners. This app will also allow families to switch between multiple library accounts. Simple to use. Just go to the App Store and download the free app, BookMyne!

The library will be closed the 24th, 25th and 26th in observance of the Christmas holiday!

Happy Holidays! We will see you at the library!
