~”READS to Go” at your library!
“Reads to Go” is a new service provided by READS, the reference and adult services section of the New Hampshire Library Association (NHLA). “Reads to Go” offers book club kits you can borrow through interlibrary loan from New Hampshire libraries. Each kit contains: 15 books, 1 discussion guide, 1 sign-out sheet, and one brochure. North Hampton Public Library card holders can utilize this service and borrow a kit. The person checking out the book club kit is responsible for returning all the items in the kit and may borrow the kit for six weeks. For a list of available titles visit the “Reads-to-Go” website at: http://reads-to-go.blogspot.com/. If you wish to borrow a kit contact the Library. Our Library may borrow up to two kits at a time.

~ Talking Books
If you have trouble reading regular print, you should know about Talking Books, a program funded through a partnership of state and federal dollars together with gifts and donations. Talking Book users have free access to fiction and nonfiction materials on a broad range of topics for all ages. The Talking Book Library includes books and magazines recorded on cassette, print/Braille children’s picture books, descriptive narrated videos, bi-monthly and annual catalogs, and even special players to listen to these books and magazines.
Talking Books is a free service, including the equipment, and available through your local library. To sign up you need an application form, available at the Library, which you fill out and have signed by your physician certifying your disability. After that, you simply order through their catalog, and your books and players come directly to you through the mail. Return mail is free of charge. If you think you qualify and would like to sign up for the Talking Books program, stop in to pickup an application from the North Hampton Library.
~ Online Book Club
Think you’re too busy to read? Try the Online Book Club at the North Hampton Library. You can pick from 11 different categories, from nonfiction and business books to mystery, romance, science fiction and teen books. There’s even an audio book club if you’d rather listen to a book! Join one or join more than one-it’s your choice.
Each day you’ll receive a 5-minute portion of a book via email, and by the end of the week you’ll have read (or listened to) 2-3 chapters. If you decide to go on with the book, you can contact us and we’ll reserve it for you if it’s in our collection or obtain it for you if we don’t already own it.
