      STRATFORD LIBRARY’S DIGITAL COLLECTION AVAILABLE 24/7

      The Stratford Library is happy to offer best-selling and classic eBooks, audiobooks, music and video to its patrons available 24/7 from the Library’s digital collection, [http://tratford.lib.overdrive.com].

                  In addition to titles that are available for users to borrow or join a wait list, the Library is providing visitors additional titles to discover, sample and recommend to the Library.  Via the “Recommend to Library” links, users can also suggest titles they’d like to see added to the catalog, giving the Library a new method of patron-driven acquisition.

      Users may browse the Library’s website, borrow titles with a valid library card and enjoy them on all major computers and devices including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets and Kindle®.   EBooks can be read immediately on any device with an internet browser and all titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees.

      For the month of June, the Stratford Library is participating in the Overdrive Challenge. To raise awareness of library eBook lending, Overdrive is awarding prizes to libraries that increase their digital circulation by 25% or 50% during the month of June. The Stratford Library could win as much as $2500 in content credit toward building their ebook collection.  

      Patrons are urged to take advantage of this valuable new service while helping their town library in the process.  Additional assistance can found by calling the Adult Services Department (203.385.4164) or attending Technology Sandbox classes at the Library.  The upcoming schedule includes June 24 from 10 am-noon and July 15 from 2-4 pm.

      Library Exhibits Original Photography

      Stratford’s Caporaso Is Highlighted through July

           "Photography by Donna” is the July art exhibit at the Stratford Library.  Original photography by Stratford native Donna Rae Henault Caporaso will on display throughout the month. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

           Caporaso is a Stratford based photographer specializing in the beauty of nature. She discovered her love and gift for photography during a time of crisis and challenge in her life. Seeking to regain her balance, she grabbed her camera and went exploring around Stratford. Her photos capture a sense of tranquility and sadness, a soul seeking solace which can swiftly draw one in. While her love of sunrises and sunsets is evident in her portfolio, she also enjoys photographing birds, plants and scenery. One of Caporaso’s photos - a Snowy Owl at Long Beach – was recently selected for the front page of the New Haven Register. She graduated from Stratford High School and the Connecticut Business Institute and is a proud mother of three and grandmother of one. Caporaso dedicates her first Stratford Library exhibit to Kim, Robin and Rose for their encouragement to publicly share her photography.

           "Photography by Donna” will be on display in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford through July 31. For further information, call the Library at 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.
