Book club anyone?

Library Director Heather Bonney is interested in starting a reading club.  The Clinton Library is not open until 11 on Saturdays, so her thoughts are to meet once every other month to discuss an agreed upon book.  Anyone interested in joining is asked to email her at hbonney@sampsonnc.com.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Get Jane Eyre and other required reading online!!

Lately, we've been getting a lot of requests for classic books by students.  They have to read them for an English class in the upcoming year.  If this describes you, and your assigned book is an older title (written in the 1800s or earlier) there's a good chance that you can download it to your smartphone or computer.  All you need is your library card!  To see if your book can be access right now, click on the link below and search for it.  Then you just need to check it out!  It's that simple.
