The Nooks Are Here!


Barnes & Noble Nook Color e-readers are now available to our patrons! Thanks to generous funding from the Friends of the Maplewood Library, six Nooks for adults – four at the Main Library and two at the Hilton Branch – are preloaded with current fiction, nonfiction, young adult and children’s titles.  Adult patrons will be asked to sign a user agreement and leave a refundable $20.00 deposit. You may borrow a Nook for two weeks. We’ve included instructions and a tutorial in case you’re hesitant!

The Children’s Room is offering Color Nooks for kids. Loaded with interactive stories (much like our story computers), these Nooks may only be used in the Library. Two Color Nooks each for Main Library and Hilton Branch Children’s Rooms were purchased with a generous grant from the Kiwanis Club.
