big library read 2Join thousands of libraries around the world for the Big Library Read, global eBook reading club. Beginning on May 15th, patrons can download Michael Malone’s novel The Four Corners of the Sky in OverDrive Read, Kindle, EPUB, and PDF formats via the library’s OverDrive eBook catalog.  There will be unlimited access to the eBook from May 15th through June 1st.  No holds or waiting lists!  You will need your resident Elkhart Public Library card and an Internet connected electronic device such as a computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

The Four Corners of the Sky is described as a novel of love, family, and forgiveness.  Annie is a Navy pilot now but once she was a motherless child, abandoned by her con artist father to live with family she’d never met.   When her father’s dying wish is the return of a precious gift in exchange for her mother’s name, Annie embarks on an unforgettable adventure.

Big Library Read is a pilot program in which libraries worldwide offer a single eBook to their patrons. In addition to creating a global “library book club,” Big Library Read is designed to demonstrate the positive exposure and sales influence library eBook catalogs provide to authors and publishers. It will spotlight one title for a set time period for library patrons around the world to read simultaneously. The program is sponsored by OverDrive, a global distributor of eBooks and audiobooks, with initial support and participation from Sourcebooks, Inc., a leading US independent publisher.

Lemonade Day

Administrator : April 24, 2013 7:29 pm : Elkhart Public Library, Kids

Lemonade Day

For one day in early May, lemonade stands will pop up all around Elkhart.  Saturday, May 4 is Elkhart’s second annual Lemonade Day.  In her eTruth blog post It’s almost time for Lemonade Day Elkhart, Marlys Weaver-Stoesz reports that about 500 Elkhart students participated last year and that the organizers are hoping for 1000 this year.

Lemonade Day is held in communities across the country to help children learn how to start their own businesses. In the process they also learn about handling money and other valuable life skills.

We have made a Lemonade Day book list especially for kids who want to know more about starting a business. Included are “getting started” guides for young entrepreneurs,  matching interests with opportunities, handling money and more. All of the titles are available from the Elkhart Public Library.

For more information about Lemonade Day, and to register, visit the Lemonade Day Elkhart website. Regular updates are posted on Lemonade Day Elkhart’s Facebook page

Lemonade Day backpacks can be picked up at the following Elkhart locations:

The backpacks include the materials and information needed to set up a lemonade stand. Registration forms are also enclosed for those who have not already registered online.
