This is it! You’re in your last week of school for the semester. Your papers and projects are done, those late nights studying in Waybright are about to pay off, and the tinsel-strewn twinkle lights at the end of the tunnel are coming into clearer focus. And as you’re “final”-izing your exams and packing your bags for upcoming travels, library resources are probably the last thing on your mind. (Well, unless you have books that are overdue… but that’s another story altogether.) However, if you’re like me, you’re looking at a pretty long and lonely trek back home for the holidays (15 hours in my case) — and the prospect of having to hunt for a new radio station every 50 miles isn’t all that appealing. Well, Rolfing yet again can come to the rescue!
If you hang a right after coming through the library’s main entrance, you’ll notice four shelves of white plastic cases right beside the Blu-Ray discs. Within these cases reside CD recordings of a wide variety of books: everything from a self-paced course in Hindi to the collected works of Agatha Christie. If you can’t find anything that piques your interest (or if your car doesn’t happen to have a CD player), surf on over to the Rolfing website and scroll down to the big blue “OverDrive” box in the lower right-hand corner. We subscribe to a number of digital versions of audiobooks in addition to our physical holdings — and our collection continues to grow. There are two things I especially like about OverDrive: first, you can’t rack up a fine because when your two weeks are up the title’s simply taken out of your list, and second, OverDrive has the Media Console, their app that allows you to take your tales with you wherever you go.
From all of us here at Rolfing Memorial Library, have a wonderful break, and may God bless you richly as we celebrate the birth of His Son! See you in January!
