Clever Trick for Savvy eBook Readers

So, you want to read this eBook now!
You've checked eMediaLibrary only to find that everyone else wants to read it, too, and there is a fairly lengthy wait list. Before you give up, check out eRead Illinois, the Library's new eBook service.

Many of the popular titles appear in both eMediaLibrary and eRead Illinois, but because eRead Illinois is NEW, many people haven't discovered it yet. You might just find that the book you want is available or has a shorter wait list. Worst case, you can add your name to the wait list on both services and up your chances of getting it sooner.

Both eBook services are free! All you need is your Roselle Library card and PIN.

Water, water, everywhere!

All the talk about possible flooding as the snow melts, brings back memories of 1987.
Do you remember when approximately 9 inches of rain fell through the night and morning in August of that year? Flooding was widespread throughout the area.

In this photo from the Roselle History Museum's Digital Archive, two Roselle Fire Department Water Rescue boats cruise the area around Hattendorf Street and Bokelmann Street, where some of the worst flooding occurred. Shops along west Hattendorf Street are visible in the background. (see a larger version here)

See more photos by searching "Flood of 1987" in the Digital Archive.

We can only hope that all the snow will melt gradually and find it's way to ditches, culverts and drains without leaving any damage behind.
