Everyone knows that the library has books, but what else is available at the Fremont Area District Library? Here are just a few that might interest you:
DVDs. The library carries TV series, new releases, children’s movies, documentaries, workout videos, classic favorites, and more! All available for you to check out and take home. If we do not have what you are looking for we can (usually) get it for you from another library within a few days.
Computers. Our computers are used daily by those who need to check email, browse Facebook, apply for jobs, file for unemployment, file their taxes, type up a resume, or maybe just play games. Did you know that you do not need a library card to use our computers? Although, if you need to print something or make copies there are small fees for those services.
Magazines/Newspapers. There is no need to purchase your own personal subscription to your favorite periodical, just come on in and read ours while relaxing in a cozy chair by the fireplace.
Large Print. We have an expansive collection of large print materials for those who need, or just prefer, larger text.
Audiobooks. We have books on CD as well as “Playaways” which are small MP3 players on which you can listen to an entire book – just plug in your own earphones!
e-Materials. We have ebooks, emagazines, and eaudiobooks available on two different digital platforms. Check our website or call us to find out more.
Amazing People. Library staff members are ready to help you with anything we can. We answer reference questions, recommend books, assist with computers, and more every day. Our staff members are friendly and helpful.
Programs. The library offers a variety of programs for all ages and interests. At this time almost all of our programs are virtual but we look forward to offering in person programs again soon. Some of those programs include storytimes for children, crafts for teens and adults, computer classes, author talks, book clubs, magic shows, and more!
Would you like to know what else you might find here? Normally the library has toys and games for you to enjoy (although most of these are put away while we are in Stage 2 of our reopening plan). We have access to Ancestry.com for patrons who login on our computers. We have free WiFi available to everyone 24/7. The list seems never ending so come on in to find something I haven’t mentioned!
We can’t wait to see you at the Library!
P.S. Did I mention we have air conditioning?
