  • It would be nice if their vision for the future did NOT include using illegal posters to promote library events. I still don’t understand how they came up with that strategy for the “Big Brother” event series.

  • The library is great, I love it. If you haven’t checked out whats going on lately, please do. You can get tons of e-books that load through amazon right to your kindle. That’s free kindle reading, people. It’s still a library and you check out the e-books and return them (all electronic). I cannot express how awesome the library is. You can fill out a form of books you like and an actual librarian will email you with ideas of other books you may like. So far, they’ve picked some good stuff that I enjoyed.

    • This! Unless you really love dead tree books (which I totally respect), Overdrive is thoroughly terrific for any and all libraries you belong to, including DC.

    • Whoa, where is that form?

      Sometimes I wish there were more books on Overdrive (thru the library), though.

      • you can request additional titles and I’ve found that they’re pretty good about accommodating these requests. Sometimes the restrictions placed by publishers can be opaque, but they’ve added about 1/2 of the titles I’ve requested (nothing too obscure). The titles do skew somewhat towards mass market, but there’s a lot of great stuff, including an extensive range of classic literature.
