I am pleased to report the new Nexus 7 and Mid-Continent Public Library work well together. I installed MCPL's Android app and it allows me to access the Library's website, check out and renew books, and place items on hold. Online Resources are also accessible. Additionally, I installed and used OverDrive, the app used to access eBooks and audiobooks, with no problems.
Have you ever gotten strange looks as you flip through a book? Has anyone ever asked you “are you really reading that or just skimming pages?” Have you ever been accused of owning your own library? If so, you may be a speed reader or simply have a book “problem.” Don’t worry, this isn't a bad diagnoses. But it does mean that you may find yourself with nothing to read and way to many books in your room.
The first bookmobile in the United States was the brainchild of Mary Titcomb, the librarian for the Washington County Free Library in Maryland, in 1905. Ms. Titcomb believed that the entire county should have access to library books, and with the help of Joshua Thomas and the Library Wagon, she made it happen!
