Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Keep some jingle in your pockets during the holiday season by taking advantage of our great library materials.

Do you have kids to entertain? Download audiobooks or e-books for them to use on their tablet or MP3 player. Nebraska Overdrive Libraries has great titles such as “Old School: Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series” by Jeff Kinney and the read-along “Fancy Nancy: Fancy Day in Room 1-A” by Jane O'Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser. Other popular titles include “The Rabbit Who Wanted to Fall Asleep,” “Buzz Boy and Fly Guy,” “The Green Ninja,” “Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend,” “Sisters, Tales from a Not-so-Dorky Drama Queen” and “Batter Up, Sponge Bob!” Teens will enjoy “The First Battle Warriors: Dawn of the Clans Series,” “Tilt,” “Impulse” and “Utopia.”

Another great option for keeping youngsters entertained is the Tumblebook of the Day available at http://daily.tumblebooks.com/. You will also find plenty for them to do if you link from our library catalog at http://onec.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/SchuylerPL/ to Great Websites for Kids. Also, stop in and talk to Mike about how to download a spectacular suite of programs for your youngsters. The ELF download provides popular drawing and music activities, as well as books, games and puzzles.

If you need some downtime for yourself or others in your family, a quick read might be just the thing. Check out one of the downloadable magazines we provide from Zinio. Link from our catalog or website at http://libraries.ne.gov/schuyler/ to Zinio for 50 magazine titles to add to your device or read in your browser. Titles include Rolling Stone, Family Handyman, US Weekly, Seventeen and Reader’s Digest.

Take a break from your shopping and stop in to read the local newspapers, borrow a bestseller or check out a new DVD. We have displays of our newest books near the entry doors and many of them are in large-print format, which makes the reading even easier and more enjoyable.

We have a copy machine available if you need to make multiple copies of your Christmas letter. We can help you increase or decrease the size of your documents. Black-and-white copies are only 10 cents each and color copies are 50 cents.

As always, let us know if you have any suggestions for books or other new material. Stop in, then jingle all the way home.
