Book It To The Library

Time for a Movie...

This cooler weather has reminded me that winter is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do is curl up on the couch under a blanket and watch movies. 

Stinson Library has a huge collection of DVD’s you can check out for seven days. There are recent releases, like the TV series “1928” from the “Yellowstone” collection, the Barbie movie, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” and “Elemental.” 

We also have holiday favorites like “Frosty the Snowman,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” and classics like “Casablanca,” “Gone With the Wind,” “Grease,” “Lawrence of Arabia” and “Jaws.” 

Apps Available

Can’t find what you are looking for? Check out what’s available on apps like Hoopla where library card holders can download three movies or shows per month for free. 

Hoopla is a streaming service for audiobooks, movies, graphic novels and ebooks. Hoopla does offer bingepasses, which means you can stream certain items for free. Currently, you can stream all Hallmark Movies for free during the holiday season. 

CloudLibrary is another digital library with ebooks and audiobooks for every age group. Explore a vast collection of digital titles with a totally customizable user experience. 

Our ShareApp allows you to request books, DVD’s, CD’s and audio books from libraries all over Illinois and have them sent to Stinson in Anna or Cobden. 

All of these apps can be found on your Google Play Store or Apple’s App Store, but can only be used with your Stinson Library card.

Christmas in the Village

Dec. 2 is Christmas in Cobden Village. The Cobden Branch will have Blind Date with a Book gifts available for $3 provided by the Friends of the Library from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Friends will also have the Stinson stained glass ornaments for sale for $25, as well as complimentary hot beverages and cookies. 

3D Printing Classes

Project Next Generation is hosting 3D printing classes from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoons in December. 

Kids 10 to 18 years old can learn the basics of 3D printing. Students will learn to download their chosen file and upload to the 3D printer. 

After choosing their preferred filament color and a little patience, voila! A newly formed, 3D printed object is ready to take home. This project is free and no registration is required.
