Kooskia Community Library invites the public to an Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 29 from 2-5:30 p.m. at 026 S. Main (next to Kooskia City Hall).
The library has new tables and chairs, improved 24/7 internet service through AirBridge Broadband, Lego kits and more. If you haven’t been in lately, come see what’s new. Lisa Puckett, Tech & Education coordinator for PRLD, will also be there to introduce Talking Book Service (TBS) for print-disabled readers and demonstrate the equipment.
Through the TBS catalog, audio books and magazines can be loaned free to any Idaho resident who is unable to read standard print, hold a book, or turn pages due to a temporary or permanent physical limitation. The Talking Book Service has more than 85,000 audio books and 70 magazine titles from which to choose. The collection contains fiction and non-fiction topics ranging from astronomy to westerns. Reading levels range from very easy to adult. Books are available in many languages in addition to English. Plus, users can receive books and magazines in Braille, enjoy books about Idaho’s history and lifestyle, and listen to more than 200 daily newspapers!
A link to the Talking Book Service application and a video showing the features can be found by scrolling down to the bottom of the Prairie-River Library District website, prld.org.
