You can now get books on CD in MP3 format here. These audiobooks are in MP3 format but on CDs, and a whole book usually fits on one CD (sometimes on two). They will work in some newer CD players, most car CD players made since 2005, and in computers. Just look for the red cases on the end cap in the AV section upstairs, or look in the catalog for "MP3 Books."
Come in and see our display (upstairs) of images and information pertaining to Vaughn Machinery, the Wetmore Dam and the Ohio Edison Dam. Since we are losing two of our dams soon, this is a chance to say goodbye to them and to see how the river looked at the turn of the last century. The display has photos of the Glens, the amusement park there as well as the walking paths.
