Everyone at the Superior Public Library would like to wish you a very happy holiday season. For the Christmas holiday, the library is closed Monday and Tuesday for Christmas. It’s open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 31, but will be closed for New Year’s Day.
Please plan ahead for your library visits and returning materials during these holiday weeks.
The Friends of the Library is still selling Superior Library coffee mugs for $10 each. The mug features Carl Gawboy’s lovely painting of Superior’s old Carnegie Library on Hammond Avenue as it looked in the 1950s. The mugs can be purchased at the library’s service desk. They even come gift wrapped if you’re looking for a last-minute gift.
It looks as though tablets, e-readers and smartphones will be popular gifts this holiday season. Don’t forget that you can check out e-books from our library for your devices, just like print books.
During the next couple weeks, the Northern Waters Library System will be purchasing even more e-books for our region’s libraries. You can find e-book titles in our online catalog at merlin.nwls.lib.wi.us. The catalog will bring you to the download site. All you need is a valid library card.
