I am thrilled to announce that we now have a Nook eReader available for checkout thanks to the generosity of First State Bank Central Texas. You may go to our website and click on the Overdrive icon to browse the digital collection. You are allowed to choose two eBooks, and I will load them onto the Nook. Then you will check the Nook out for two weeks just like a book. Having a Nook for checkout will allow you to “test drive” an eReader and see how you like the eBook experience. Since you can enlarge the font, the Nook can be a good option for readers who need large-print materials.
