I have to admit, I am a huge fan of Kid Rock. There. I said it. I saw him as an opening act for Kiss and never looked back. His latest CD, First Kiss differs a bit from his usual raunchy lyrics and hard rock sound and instead opts for more reflective lyrics and bluesy rock and roll. The title track, "First Kiss," kicks off the CD with lyrics reminiscent of "All Summer Long" from Rock and Roll Jesus. There was not a single song that I didn't like on this CD. That's quite a feat as far as I'm concerned. One of my favorite songs was "Drinking Beer with Dad," reminding me of summers long ago when I did just that.
Reflect back on your carefree, misspent youth with this CD. Kid Rock is aging like a fine whiskey, smooth and satisfying.Posted in music | No Comments »
Are you paying for a subscription to a service like Amazon, Hulu, or Netflix to receive digital books, movies, music and television? Did you know that similar services are available for free through your library?
With just a library card, you can download bestselling eBooks, like John Grisham's Gray Mountain; full-color magazines, like National Geographic; classic films, like "To Kill a Mockingbird;" and popular television shows, like "Wallander" and "MI-5." You can even download and keep up to five songs per week. Whether it's Mozart or Megan Trainor, select from among 8 million songs to keep for as long as you want.
Connect to any of these services from the library's webpage at http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/econtent/. For assistance with these services, contact or visit the library, sign up for a one-on-one help session, or register for one of the Tech Talk workshops held each month. The next workshops are scheduled for January 28 at 10 a.m. and February 4 at 10 a.m. Bring in laptops or mobile devices for help setting up, or just attend to learn more. Contact the library's Reference Desk with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Reading Room, Resources, Web Tools | No Comments »
To see this list, just click the New Book Alerts button on our homepage. Once there, you can use the menus on the left to see just DVDs, or just Childrens books, etc.
Along the top, you can click to see previous weeks, or see more than one week at a time. These new items lists just started last week, so it'll take a few weeks to build up.
Speaking of book lists, did you know the library has a Reading Room webpage devoted to provided reading suggestions? From there you can find best seller lists and lists of award winners, "read-a-likes" similar to your favorite books and authors, staff picks, and also a list of places from which to download ebooks.
And if you'd like to have reading suggestions delivered to you automatically, via email or RSS feed, check out our Electronic Signups page. You can sign up to receive notifications of new items, best sellers, library events, our Twitter feed and more!
If you have any questions about these options, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Library Information, Reading Room, Resources | No Comments »
