Traer Library news & notes

January 3, 2014
Traer Star-Clipper


If you received a kindle, nook, or tablet for Christmas this season, be sure to check out the 6000 free ebooks provided in NEIBORS through the library. The easiest way to use NEIBORS is to download the free Overdrive Media Console App from your device's app store. Then, follow the prompts to choose the Traer Public Library. To sign in, you need your library number (email me or call if you have forgotten yours) and your PIN - the PIN is your phone number (the number we have on record) without the hyphen and without the area code unless your area code is something other than 319. The Nook will require you to have an Adobe ID, just follow the prompts when asked to set one up. The Kindle users must have an account. Overdrive has excellent help pages at We also have a handout at the library and I am very willing to spend one on one time with you to help you use your device with NEIBORS. It is best to call ahead to make sure I will be available.


Thank you to everyone who brought in a wreath this month - they were a wonderful addition to the library decor and we received many positive comments on the beauty and originality of the wreaths. You may pick yours up any time we are open this week.



Cynthia Drajna will teach a class on beginning quilt making. She will cover the basic tools you need to get started, the type of fabric you should use, what type of project makes a good first project and beginning techniques and tricks that will assure a successful endeavor. The class will be offered twice - on Tuesday, January 14 at 2:00pm and a repeat of the class on Saturday, January 18 at 10:15am. Sign up sheets are now available at the library. The class is free, but you do need to register. Free free to respond to this email and I will add you to the list.
