If you’re a music lover with an Apple iPhone, you can take the music with you wherever you go. Through the North Webster Public Library’s Freegal Music Service, you can download thousands of songs onto your iPhone absolutely free and legal.
Guests interested in downloading free music to their iPhones are encouraged to attend the Freegal Class at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6. The class is free, but class size is limited so advanced registration is required. Sign up at the front desk if interested. You will need to bring your iPhone, current North Webster library card and PIN to class. Sorry Android owners, this class is for iPhones only.
The library’s Freegal Music Service can be accessed from the library’s website at www.nweb.lib.in.us and free music can be downloaded onto any mobile device including smart phones, iPods, tablets, laptops, and other electronic devices. Using your library card and PIN, you can download up to three music tracks in MP3 format per week per card. You can choose from thousands of songs in over 100 genres. Song clips are available that let you preview a song before downloading it. The library underwrites the purchase of the music so all songs are all free and legal to patrons.
If you want to learn how to create flyers, newsletters, business cards, brochures and catalogs sign up for the Microsoft Publisher Class at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7. Adult Services Director Beth Smith will show you how to use this popular computer software program to create attractive and useful documents.

The Youth Services Department will be showing a teens only movie at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 8. The teens will gather in the library meeting room to munch on free popcorn and watch a Steven Spielberg movie about dinosaurs that are genetically re-created for the ultimate theme park and the terrifying havoc they wreak when they break out of their carefully constructed environment. The movie is rated PG-13 and is 127 minutes long.
When the havoc caused by accidents or illness creates a need for blood, the American Red Cross provides a much needed blood supply. The American Red Cross Bloodmobile will be in the north parking lot of the library from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 7, to collect blood donations. Stop by and save a life by donating blood.
As the hot days of August descend upon us, the library offers a cool place to relax. Come on in out of the heat and read a newspaper, find a good book, check out a movie, take in a class, surf the web or visit with a friend over a cup of coffee. The Library is your summer gathering place.
