Classical music, Creative Coloring and New E Resources at the library

August is a great time to relax and enjoy the beach or a backyard patio. I like listening to Classical music with a cool beverage, and with the library system, you have two options for getting your music fix.  Music CDs are checked out for a three week period. Access Freegal Music on the library website, you will have access to hundreds of thousands of songs in the Sony Music catalog. Songs are in DRM-free MP3 format.
