      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.

      Stratford Library Exhibits Original Quilts

      Stratford Quilter Is Showcased through August

           

           "Fabric Art” is the August art exhibit at the Stratford Library. Original handmade quilts and quilted pieces by Stratford resident Marilyn Cocking will be on display throughout the month. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
      Marilyn Cocking has been quilting since 1977. Some 200 plus pieces later the emphasis in her work has shifted to more unconventional ideas. Her quilts currently hang in the offices of the United Nations on behalf of women in the world as well as the Norwalk Community College exhibit entitled “Pathway to Peace”. This is her first exhibit at the Stratford Library.

      "Fabric Art” will be on display in the Main Lobby of the Stratford Library, 2203 Main Street in Stratford through August 30. For further information, call the Library at 203.385.4162 or visit: www.stratfordlibrary.org.
