- Learn how to access e-books, magazines, music and more straight to your smartphone, tablet or e-reader.
- Tell a librarian a little bit about reading likes (and dislikes!), then receive an email from Your Next Five Books with personalized reading recommendations.
Bike Everywhere Day: Celebration Stations – Drop by on your morning bicycle commute and get a Library card, check out popular media and score some free swag! Snacks and coffee will be available. This event is presented in partnership with Cascade Bicycle Club.
