Christmas in Canaan goes virtual at the Canaan Town Library

The library is excited to be a part of this year’s virtual Christmas in Canaan.  If you have a favorite book that you think deserves a better cover, why not design a new one?
Draw, paint, carve, or bake a new cover for a book and send the picture (and other necessary info, see above) to christmasincanaan@gmail.com.  The community will be voting on their favorites and there will be prizes!
This contest is open to all ages.  Prizes sponsored by the Friends of the Canaan Town Library.
Entries must be emailed by 5 pm on December 11, 2020 to be eligible for voting.

Disappearing Kindle Book Compatibility for New Titles in Overdrive/Libby

A message from the NH State Library Downloadable Books Consortium:

We are disappointed to share with our readers that Amazon is not providing the Kindle Book format to popular bestselling titles recently purchased for your digital collection. We hope that Amazon recognizes the importance of their partnership with public libraries and their readers and will choose to reinstate the Kindle Book format to all new titles in the digital collection. Please contact your local librarians for assistance with using the Libby app to read eBooks on newer iPads, iPhones, and Android devices or to request books in print from your local public library. 

Bobbi Slossar, Technology Resources Librarian
New Hampshire State Library

Happy Halloween!

We’ve had our first guests at our selfie station. Get those costumes on and get down here. Share your pictures with us at circulationdesk@canaanlibrary.org. Maybe you’ll see yourself in the library’s newsletter, or on our facebook page!
