Community Mondays begin in January from 2-4PM

Once again we are planning a weekly gathering at the library on Monday afternoons for folks who would like a little community during the short and quiet days of winter. Each Monday, beginning in January from 2-4, you are welcome to join us upstairs in the reading lounge. Bring your knitting, your sewing, your crocheting, any other handicrafts, or just yourself for a few hours of conversation. All are welcome. 


There are many ways to read books online for free. Three of the best are listed below.

Open library is one of these. Information about how to borrow books from Open Library can be found here.

Another source for free digital books is Project Gutenberg  which “offers over 58,000 free eBooks. Choose among free epub and Kindle eBooks, download them or read them online. You will find the world’s great literature here, with focus on older works for which U.S. copyright has expired. “

Finally, don’t forget our own Clinton, Essex, Franklin Library System access to e-books, digital audiobooks and e-magazines online. To access those using your library card, click here.
