Build your own book group
Have you ever wanted to be a part of a book group but were unsure of where to start? How do you know what kind of group would be the right fit for you?
On Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. we’ll help you find answers to those questions at our “Build a Book Group” program. Learn what you need to know to join a book group or start one of your own. Existing book groups are also invited to share tips and ideas about what makes them successful. Refreshments will be served. Sign up online at www.bethlehempubliclibrary.orgor call (518) 439-9314. If your book group would like to participate, contact Natalie at ext. 3023.
Flip for it
With more than 100 titles to access instantly, the Flipster digital magazine collection continues to evolves with the 2018 addition of Essence, a lifestyle, fashion and beauty magazine for African-American women. You can easily browse and view all of the magazines available through the Flipster link on our website, or select the “Open in App” option to download magazines to a free, easy-to-install app, where they can be read and managed offline. Some titles are exclusive to Bethlehem cardholders. You will need a library card to download titles or view them in an off-site browser. If you’re in the library, however, you won’t need to sign in at all.
