Every dog should have a job like Riley’s.  He’s a detection dog, and he works with Deputy Sheriff Mike Osmond of the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Department.  A labrador retriever with a big heart and a great nose, Riley helps Mike locate illegal drugs by sniffing for them. When the dog sniffs something suspicious, he scratches at it enthusiastically. Mike investigates and provides Riley with a food reward which makes this dog very happy!  Thanks to Mike and Riley for visiting during our Preschool Storytime at the library.

Meet Libby. Did you know that Alma Public Library has access to thousands of ebooks and audiobooks? You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.

Go ahead.  Give it a try!

1. Fish out your library card
2. Open the Libby app: Download the App
3. Find your local library system – Winding Rivers Library System
4. Search, sample, borrow, enjoy

It takes just a few taps to find and borrow a book. Libby has a ground-breaking built-in ebook reader, and a beautiful audiobook player. If you prefer, you can send books to your Kindle for reading (not Kindle Fire – yet!)

If you like Libby, keep using it.  If you don’t, you can continue to use the Overdrive software you are already familiar with. Here’s the site to download the other app: Older OverDrive App for E-Books
