the saturdaysThe book is an fun and delightful read, which takes you on a Saturday journey in post-WWII New York City (1941) with four sophisticated and adventurous children.

Each character brings his/her own lively personality, and the children meet interesting characters on their separate Saturday journeys.

We know that downloading library e-books and audiobooks can be confusing, even for the tech-savvy among us. That is why we offer personalized assistance on a drop-in basis every Wednesday from noon to 1 p.m. 

Need help checking out digital materials, downloading them, registering your library account or transferring library media to your e-book reader or MP3 player? 

Stop by the second floor conference room at lunchtime on Wednesday, and we'll get you sorted out.  Bring your device and your library card number with you. 

Also, bring your laptop if you need help downloading onto a dedicated e-reader such as a Kindle, Nook or an MP3 player that is not also a smartphone.
