Rain or Shine

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

April showers? May flowers? Who can predict? Luckily, the Lincolnwood Public Library has got you covered with an ever-expanding selection of downloadable books, movies, and more.

Prepare for warm, sunny spring days by loading your smartphone with new music from hoopla so that you’ll always have a new album to listen to while you’re out walking or jogging.

When those inevitable rain showers keep the kids trapped indoors, download a movie, TV show, or narrated picture book. While they’re occupied, flip through a digital magazine on Flipster.

With the free Flipster app for your tablet, you can read digital magazines while you’re out and about offline, too. Skim through Entertainment Weekly on your way to the movie theater, or dip into Food & Wine while you’re waiting in line at the new Mariano’s!

Don’t forget about ebooks! MyMediaMall offers great ebooks for all ages to enjoy, rain or shine. Here are just a few:

  • Rain Reign by Ann M. Martin – A story for middle school readers about a girl with Asperger’s syndrome and her very special dog.
