Upcoming Blockbusters in Our Library!

Did you know that over 40 books will be adapted and released for the big screen this year? Did you also know that our library carries 10 titles of the biggest must-see films of the year? Leisure reading is a great stress reliever, particularly since a new schedule of classes is about to commence! Located on the second floor of the library, these books are a must read before being seen on the big screen. For the novels we do not carry, our Interlibrary Loan department will order a book for you. There are no excuses not to know the story before you see the film! Happy reading!

In Our Library

The Maze Runner
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
The Hobbit
A Book of Common Prayer
Far From the Madding Crowd

Ebook Collections!

As most of the collection at the Cannon Memorial Library is now virtual, we thought there should be a spotlight on our two largest collections, Ebrary and EBSCO’s EBook Collection.

Ebrary is an all-subject collection which now contains over 78,000 ebook titles, many of which can be downloaded to multiple devices, including Android or iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch! First install Adobe Digital Editions on your computer (free online) and soon you can download an entire document as an e-book.

EBSCO’s EBook Collection contains full text digital versions of books (over 80,000) the library has purchased for your use. Please be aware that if you opt to download ebooks, you must create a personal EBSCO account to do so, also requiring Adobe® Digital Editions 1.7.1 or higher for offline viewing. All support information can be found on the EBSCO support page.

As always, titles also can be found through our library homepage’s quick search option. If troubles arise, please contact a librarian at the reference desk at (352)588.8477, or try our new reference system, LibAnswers
