Glades Library Ready For Digital Access

News From The Glades County Public Libary

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- The new fiber-optic cable has been installed up to the front of the library and will hopefully be available inside fairly soon. This cable will speed up the computer’s operations and provide clearer graphics for the computers.

The Heartland Library Cooperative has committed resources for increasing the number of e-books in our Axis 360 service from Baker and Taylor. This service focuses primarily on current and high demand titles and includes some bestsellers, when they are available.
Glades Public Library is happy to introduce a new e-book collection, Axis 360. Axis 360 works with Blio e-book reading software that you download to your computer, tablet, or iPhone. Blio is the first reader app to be 100% compliant with the American Disabilities Act (ADA). Axis 360 titles will currently run on any Windows PC and on iOS and Android mobile devices. When you check out a title on your axis 360 account, it can be moved to multiple devices which, support Blio, such as iPhone, or a Kindle Fire. Axis 360 will soon be available for Nook, Kobo, Sony, Mac desktops, WebOS, and the vender is negotiating with Amazon for Kindle compatibility.

A copy machine and a fax machine are available for public use at the library. Books and tapes, audio and video, as well as DVDs are available at the library.
Our next regular Friends of the Library Meeting will be held on the third Monday in November—that is Monday, November 19, 2012 in the conference room of the library. The meetings are open to the public and new members are welcome.
Once again the Glades County Public Library is hosting preschool story hour on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM. Interested parties must call ahead of time as space is limited.contact Mary Booher at the library desk or call her in 863 – 946 – 0744.
