Blog Tour

I would like to point out some of the links on this blog. On the left side of your screen are located several items that you can click on. The first is the library's email address. The second is our online card catalog. You can use this link to browse the Oakland Public Library card catalog and then email the library with any questions or hold requests.
Next is Nebraska Overdrive Audiobooks. For over a year our library has offered this service to our library patrons. A brief overall description is as follows from "Nebraska Overdrive Libraries is a shared, growing collection of digital audiobooks available through Digital Library Reserve. The content is available to patrons of participating libraries through the Overdrive/DLR system.The site is designed for remote use by library patrons or by download to Overdrive Download Stations at the library. Users access the digital materials via the web. Materials may be checked out for a limited period of time, downloaded to a patron's computer or other device and are then automatically returned to the collection when the checkout time expires."
Farther down is the link to NebraskAccess. NebraskAccess provides Nebraska residents with free 24/7 access to thousands of full-text magazine, journal, and newspaper articles, biographical and business information, genealogical resources, and more. These resources are available at no cost to Nebraska residents because the Nebraska Library Commission purchases subscriptions for Nebraskans with funding from the State of Nebraska and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
My Blog List offers links to other blogs of interest to library issues. For a guided tour of any of these sites, stop in the library during library hours.
