The Library At Your Fingertips



Technology is constantly changing the face of library services. Gone are the days when you had to come into the Library in order to get a book to read or look up information. Now, as long as you have an internet connection at home and a valid library card, you can access many library services in the comfort of your own home.

If you have an e-Reader, we have access to books that you can download for free for your Nook, iPad, Kindle and other devices. We also teach classes to help you learn how to access the e-Books. The classes and the e-Books are free.

Likewise, we have downloadable audio books through both the Overdrive service and through the OneClick Digital Audio databases. Like the e-Books, these e-Audio materials are available for free, and we offer free assistance at the Library to learn how to use these services.

Interested in learning a language? Rocket Language Learning assists you in learning any of the following languages: Spanish, Arabic, French, German, Chinese (Mandarin), Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, and American Sign Language. The programs are presented via a graphic and audio interface. And, wow, just like everything else I’ve mentioned, this is free!

Are you job hunting and need help creating a resume and cover letter? Maybe you are looking for assistance in job hunting? Our career transitions database offers help in those areas. And how much does it cost? Free…you are catching on!

Maybe you are one of those do-it-yourself-ers that I admire so much, and are looking for help repairing that classic (or not so classic) car that is hanging out in the garage. We offer access to the Chilton Library, with repair information for vehicles from the past thirty-years, also for
F-R-E-E.

As I said earlier, all you need is the Internet and a valid library card from the Boulder City Library to access these items. If you don’t have the internet at home, you can access all these databases, and several others, from the public computer workstations at the Library. Check out the resources tab on our website: www.bclibrary.org.

Visit the Library at 701 Adams Boulevard.
