Getting Fit @ the Library
What was your New Year’s resolution for 2017? Chances are it involved exercise. One of the most popular goals includes living a healthier lifestyle, and at a time when public libraries are seeking to provide innovative programs and classes for the community, offering fitness classes can be a popular way to educate and encourage our patrons to become healthier. Check with your local library to see what is being offered.
OverDrive Now Available!
The Southeast Arkansas Regional Library has expanded its services with eBooks and digital audiobooks available to enjoy from the library’s website starting August 10th. The Regional Library has joined the Arkansas Book Cooperative powered by Overdrive. A valid Library card allows holders to borrow popular digital media anytime, anywhere by clicking the ebook tab or by visiting http://arkansasbookcooperative.lib.overdrive.com/.
Users may browse the library’s website, borrow titles with a valid library card, and start reading or listening on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle®. Many titles can be enjoyed immediately on any device with an internet browser or downloaded into the free OverDrive app. All titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period but we ask that you would return the book when you are finished. There are no late fees!
