Stieg Larsson's Newest Mystery
Published on Thursday, May 27, 2010
The last book in Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy was released on Tuesday, and we'll be getting our copies in soon! Since every mystery lover wants a copy, make sure to put yourself down on the waiting list before it is hundreds of people long. You can either place a hold over the phone, online, or in person.
If you prefer an audio version, you can download a WMA file of the book straight from our website. You need a computer with a Windows operating system, but after downloading it in Windows, you can transfer to an iPod or other portable device.

Did you know that you can use the library to check out e-books for your Nook or Sony E-Reader, and audiobooks for your iPod for free from the library?
This Saturday, we'll be hosting a program where you can learn to
download audio books, e-books, music, movies and more straight to your home computer. All you need to get books from home is Internet access
and a library card number. Many books and albums can even be transferred to your e-reader, smartphone or iPod!

Did you know all the great things you can do at any DC Public library?
1. Got a mobile music device? We have audiobooks you can download from the Web site – about 6,000 of them, with new titles constantly being added. We were also the first library system in the country to offer iPod-compatible downloadable audiobooks.
2. There’s a lot of fun free stuff to do in this city – some of it is even at the library. For example, the West End
location offers Qijong, Tango and Yoga Meditation programs. Around the corner, we’re setting up a series of beverage-making workshops called “Brew ‘n Book” and planning a Saturday bicycle tour of some different downtown libraries.
3. Are you part of the Twitterati? We’re tweeting. Join 1,600 others following us @dcpl.
