New Program: App Café

“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.” – Albert Einstein

POP QUIZ: Can you name all twelve locations of the Windsor Public Library? Here’s a hint.  Wait – there are only eleven listed? Where’s the twelfth? Number twelve is the location that people sometimes forget about. It’s in your house. It’s at your work. It’s also at the gym, the mall, and any other places that you frequent. It’s even where you go on vacation! Added bonus – it has free parking, is open 24/7 (even on Holidays), and has no late fees. So where exactly is this little paradise of a library? It’s ONLINE!

There are many resources available to you through Windsor Public Library’s digital collection. We’ve got eBbooks, magazines, TV shows, movies, music, newspapers, health resources, auto repair guides, research databases and more. Our online resources are expanding rapidly, and several of them, including the ones listed below, are also available as Apps.

Overdrive: eBooks & eAudiobooks. Fiction, Non-Fiction, Cookbooks, Biographies, Kids Books, Teen Books, and more.

Freegal: Free music downloads. Kind of like iTunes, but you don’t have to pay.

Hoopla: Download and stream movies and TV shows. Think of it as Netflix for libraries.

Zinio: Download popular magazines to your computer or device. 40 titles to choose from, including Good Housekeeping, Men’s Health, PC World, Apple, Oprah, Rolling Stone.

To participate in App Café you must have a valid library card and bring your own tablet or device.  For more information, or to register, please call 519-255-6770 X4424
