Your local library is more than just books

Great Lakes Library Service provides more than just books, not only providing a wide selection of books and DVDs the Library also offers eBook and eMagazine services and is now part of a World Wide bookclub via the Goodreads website.

Goodreads is a global community with millions of members who share their reading experience online. They also set a reading challenge each year, where you nominate how many books you hope to read in a year and then keep track.

You can also create an online group where you can share your thoughts on books to read, get ideas for your next read or leap into a book-related discussion – a very easy way to be part of a book club.

Simply go to www.goodreads.com and join up. Once in your account, chose the dropdown option next to ‘Explore’, select ‘Groups’ and search for ‘Great Lakes Library’. Then all you have to do is select the ‘Join’ button and you’re in.

Other reading options offered by the Great Lakes Library Service include the eBook and eMagazine sites of Borrow Box and Zino.
