The Pioneer Library System’s Virtual Library collection just got a whole lot bigger.
More than 15,000 public domain EPUB books have been added to the Virtual Library’s collection from OverDrive, the provider for the library’s digital offerings. That nearly quadruples the number of titles available through the PLS Virtual Library to almost 21,000. The eBooks have been made available to approximately 100 libraries.
The titles are available through a collaboration between OverDrive and Project Gutenberg, a database of free eBooks established by Michael Hart, who developed eBooks in 1971. He later established Project Gutenberg to encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks.
“This gives people a safe and reliable place to download eBooks. It also gives people the opportunity to see the current titles available for download with a PLS library card. People can view and download the new titles by going directly to http://www.justsoyouknow.us/publicdomain,” said Adri Edwards-Johnson, manager of the PLS Virtual Library branch. Add a comment
Have you ever spent hours creating something really amazing on the computer and then not been able to save it?
Well, the Pioneer Library System would like to help make sure all your hard work does not go to waste. Each hometown library will have the 2GB flash drives available for $9.00 each. We have been selling 1GB flash drives, but now we have upgraded to 2GB flash drives. Now you can store even more of your documents, pictures, videos, and music.
Time to get working on your projects, but be sure to save often.Add a comment

Activities to help babies grow into readers are the focus of an innovative early literacy program offered through the Pioneer Library System. Growing Like a Read gives parents the information, materials, methods, and rewards they can use during the first four years of their children’s lives to lay the foundations for reading and language development.
Parents who sign up to be part of Growing Like a Read are given a bag of materials that include a stand-up book of traditional song, rhymes, and finger plays. Parents also receive a set of activity logs that list 30 age-appropriate activities to do with their children. The eight activity logs are tailored to developmental levels at six-month intervals from birth to 48 months. Parents begin with the log that matches their child’s age and receive new materials as the baby grows.Add a comment
