The quilt challenge this summer follows our Passport to America Reading Challenge. The quilters got to choose which ONE state they wanted to represent in their quilt. These are truly works of art. Be sure to take time to come in to see these.

2016 ADULT READING CHALLENGE: PASSPORT TO AMERICA

comments Comments Off on 2016 ADULT READING CHALLENGE: PASSPORT TO AMERICA
By , June 28, 2016 3:15 pm

united-states-text-map-michael-tompsettThe states we are highlighting in the month of July are:

Arkansas * Michigan * Florida * Texas

You can find books about these states on our display rack.

The adult summer reading theme is, “Exercise Your Mind, Read!

We are offering this challenge so you can exercise your mind and read beyond your favorite genre.

                  We have compiled a list of books from each of the 50 United States. There are fiction and non-fiction alike. The book may just be set in a particular state or there may be many locations and facts mentioned. Read as many or as few as you like. Each patron accepting the challenge will be given a U.S. map that can be kept at the library. Each time a book is read we can make a mark on that state. You will have from January 1 through December 31 to finish the challenge. We will be promoting the states in order of their statehood dates. January we will feature Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Georgia. Of course we are throwing Kansas in this month because Kansas will celebrate 155 years as a state on January 29. Each month from then on will have four more states to read about. In December we will promote the last five of the United States. If you want to read about Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico that would be considered bonus work.

Interested? We hope so. Think this sounds just daunting? Relax, you can read as many as you like. There is no test and no grade. We aren’t saying you have to like the book, you just have to read it. At the end you will have exercised your mind and left your reading comfort zone. For those of you who like bragging rights we have established some different reading levels:

The Weekend Traveler – read up to 10 state books.

The Vagabond – read up to 30 books.

The Adventurer – Read up to 49 books.

First Class Passenger -Read all 50 books.

 

Ask the librarians how to get started. Happy Trails!

flipster_web_banner_rectangleGETTING STARTED WITH FLIPSTER

Patrons of Seneca Free Library can now access their favorite digital magazines using Flipster® from EBSCO Information Services.

Flipster is a next-generation magazine service that allows people to browse digital versions of the latest issues of  popular magazines, courtesy of the library.

Our patrons have access through Flipster for magazines such Fortune, Time, People, Scientific
American, Sports Illustrated, Us Weekly and more so you have the option of accessing the content at
the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded to Android™ phones and tablets, Apple® phones
and tables, and Kindle Fire tablets for offline reading anytime, anywhere.

Flipster offers an easy, browse-able reading experience. Users can browse magazines by category as well
as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent
issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines. The table of contents
contains links for quick access to articles of interest and hotlinks within magazines are hyperlinked,
opening in separate tabs when clicked. In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.

Any current NExpress patron can use the service by going to http://catalog.nexpresslibrary.org in their
browser (on their computer or mobile device) and logging into the catalog with their library user name
and PIN. From there, you will find “Access Flipster” under the Digital Resources links on the left side of
the screen. That one click will get you directly to the magazines available through NExpress.

This is new as of May 1. More titles will be added in time, as individual libraries have time to shop for magazines.
