A Solution To Your Problem
January 26, 2014
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.
Never fear...the Library is here. Not only do we have books upon books at all of our MCPL locations, we also have audiobooks (on CD, cassette, and downloadable) and eBooks that allow any reader to experience the joys of a library...from your own home. No matter how fast you read, MCPL can keep you supplied with the newest of any genre in several formats.
From now on, you don’t have to worry about how to buy books on a budget or where to put them in your already stuffed bookshelves. No one will accuse you of hoarding books or having a “problem” (as many people who speed read have been asked). You will not worry about having enough books as you travel or spending money on eBooks since they are now available online. No more!
And our resources are not just for speed readers or people who may have a book addiction. For the people who only like to read every once in a while, you can come in to any branch and pick up a book or two when you feel like it. For those who don’t like to read fiction, we have just as much nonfiction. To anyone who prefers movies over books, we have an extensive movie collection (both online and in your local MCPL). We also have comics, manga, anime, and music....a collection to rival any you have at home. All it takes is coming to any MCPL branch or visiting us online to browse at your convenience to see what you may be missing.
