This month we have added quite a few books in the library. Many from established authors like Danielle Steel, Nora Roberts, Stuart Woods, Dean Koontz, and Iris Catherine Coulter. We also have the last book in the Michael Vey series by Richard Paul Evans for teen readers. With school back in session, we wanted to remind children and their parents of our electronic resources which can be accessed at the library, without needing a card, or at home as long as you have a library card.

You can go to www.fowlercolorado.com/library.html and click on the EBSCO database icon to search many items. For kids there are things like the science reference center, history reference center and points of view. There are also auto repair and small engine repair links that adults or teens might want to use to fix these items at home.

We also have two new databases that we added that we are excited about. Rosetta Stone offers 30 languages where people can learn at their own pace. There is even a free app you can download on your tablet or phone so you can learn on the go. The other database we added is MyHeritage, an ancestry site that people can research their family tree. There are over seven billion records that you can search from many countries. We hope people take advantage of the free resources.

Finally, we would like to announce our first after school program of the year. It will be held at the library on Thursday, Oct. 5 from 3:45 to 5 p.m. We will have a different topic each month, and we will read, play games and make items each month that the kids will be able to take home with them. This upcoming program the children will be making items out of cardboard tubes. It’s for elementary kids 5-12 years old. We hope to see them there!
