A LIFE EXPLORED: ELEANOR ROOSEVELT

The Brookings Public Library continues the A Life Explored (ALE) series which examines in depth the life of one individual.  The 2015 ALE individual is Eleanor Roosevelt.  Programs about her life will be featured from February to April.

 The exploration of Mrs. Roosevelt’s life will conclude on Thursday, April 9 at 7:00 pm as scholar/presenter Susan Marie Frontczak presents a re-enactment entitled “What We Are Fighting For” - Eleanor Roosevelt during World War II.

It is December, 1942. Mrs. Roosevelt has just returned from England where she visited with soldiers, generals, royalty, and the working people. Find out how the First Lady feels about the individual’s role in a world torn by war, hardship, and uncertainty.

This one-hour program consists of a 40-45 minute monologue in-character, followed first by a question and answer period with "Eleanor Roosevelt" and then by question and answer period with the scholar/presenter, Susan Marie Frontczak.

NEW DIGITAL SERVICES NOW AVAILABLE

The Brookings Public Library is pleased to announce two new digital services to the Brookings community, both free with the use of a Brookings Public Library card.

Zinio for Libraries is a new digital magazine service.   A product of RBdigital from Recorded Books, Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand, offering multi-user access to popular publications.  It was awarded Best New Database of 2012 by Library Journal.

Through the Library's website, library card holders have unlimited multi-user access to fifty-four complete digital magazine titles, which can easily be viewed on most Internet-enabled devices inside or outside of the library. Zinio’s unique technology digitally recreates a magazine page for page, including full color pictures, intuitive navigation, key word article search and interactive elements such as audio and video.  National Geographic Interactive, Taste of Home, Cosmopolitan, Gun Digest and PC Magazine are just a few of the popular titles available.

Also in partnership with RBdigital from Recorded Books, the Library will offer OneClickdigital, an online service that allows patrons to check out eAudiobooks, including best-sellers, Recorded Books exclusives, classics, selections for children and young adults, and much more.

 Patrons have free access to eAudio at home, in the library, or on the go.  OneClickdigital is compatible with all popular listening devices, and mobile apps are available for the iPhone®, Android™, and Kindle Fire.

Details on how to access Zinio or OneClickdigital may be found at www.brookingslibrary.org (see logos on right side), or ask a library staff member at the Library.

Zinio and OneClickDigital have been funded for 2015 by the Friends of the Library.

COFFEE SHOP REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

The Brookings Public Library seeks proposals for the operation of a coffee shop within the Library, located at 515 Third Street.  The Library has housed a coffee shop on the second floor of the building for the past five years and seeks a new service provider.  More information is available at http://cityofbrookings.org/DocumentCenter/View/2561  or contact Elvita Landau at 692-9407.
