The Dade County Library is now offering Amazon Kindles for checkout.  The Kindle is a convenient, portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers.  Exclusive Kindle features now include Goodreads integration, Kindle Free-Time, Vocabulary Builder, Word Wise and more.  A single charge can last up to one month, but battery life will vary based on wireless usage.  The Kindle requires a personal credit card to access certain materials not provided by the Dade County Library.  To ensure privacy of passwords and other sensitive data, each Kindle will be re-registered to the library upon return.

New Hours at the Dade County Library

Due to an increase in local funding to the Dade County Public Library, the Cherokee Regional Library Board of Trustees voted to increase hours at the library from 24 hours a week to 30 hours a week. The change is effective Friday, May 1st.

The extra hours will be used to extend Friday hours to 4pm, and to open the library on Saturdays from 10am to 2pm. Community members can look forward to the return of Saturday family events, such as Saturday movie showings and Game Days.

The Dade County library is currently seeking a part-time employee to help with the extra hours. Interested applicants can download the application from here or pick up an application at the library. The deadline for applications is May 12th.
