End of Summer Reading Par-Tay!

You’ve read the books, you’ve written the reports, now you deserve a little break.

OverDrive just got bigger!

Do you love NOBLE’s OverDrive collection? Would you like access to even more copies and more titles?

You can now access OverDrive eBooks and audiobooks from five other Massachusetts networks who are now sharing OverDrive resources with us.

When you access OverDrive, you will now see this message:

Looking for more content? Browse and borrow from neighboring CLAMS, CW MARS, Minuteman Library Network, OCLN and SAILS Library Network through our reciprocal lending program.

NOBLE users are now able to click on the links for the other networks and borrow from their OverDrive collections using any of the usual OverDrive interfaces, including Libby.

Each network’s collection must be searched separately, it is not a combined search, due to publisher restrictions.

The cooperation will greatly expand access for NOBLE users. The Minuteman Networks’s collection alone is about three times the size of NOBLE’s. and most of the other networks’ collections are larger than ours as well. Many new titles will now be available to our users.

Didgeridoo Down Under: August 1st

Help us celebrate summer – Australian-style – with the acclaimed Didgeridoo Down Under on Wednesday, August 1st.

DDU is a unique fusion of music, culture, science, comedy, character building, anti-bullying, environmentalism and audience participation.

The didgeridoo, traditionally a hollowed-out tree trunk, has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years and is known for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun for all ages!

DDU performers Rob Thomas & Tanya Gerard are true didgeridoo pioneers in the U.S. They have played and made didges for 20+ years; have recorded several albums; and have produced music for numerous films. Tanya, who grew up in Australia, has written a children’s book, The Adventures of the Wild, Wild Wolf.

The show will take place in the Community Room at 4:00 p.m.

Didgeridoo Down Under is presented through the generosity of the New Friends of the Saugus Public Library.

Wednesday: Rolie Polie Guacamole and free ice cream!!

Beat the heat with free music and ice cream!

Join us on Wednesday, August 8th at 3:00 p.m. in the Community Room for a free rockin’ summer celebration featuring the Rolie Polie Guacamole Band.

Rolie Polie Guacamole lays claim to being the one of the hardest working bands in kids’ music, and that just might be true. They’ve released six albums and played well over 2,000 shows nationwide since hitting the boards with their first performance in 2007, receiving top picks from Boston.com, Time Out NY Kids, and Time Out Chicago. Winner of the prestigious Parents’ Choice® and NAPPA Awards, Rolie Polie Guacamole has developed a smart, parent-friendly musical style that dresses up original tunes and classic covers with vibrant harmonies and deft instrumental layers, plugging in a sizzling electric current of rhythm that lights up lyrics humming with relevance and humor.

This event is sponsored by a generous donation from the Saugus Cultural Council.
