Just in case you missed the Back Mountain Memorial Library’s Annual Auction or wished that you had purchased that special item and regret missing out on a “steal of a deal,” you have a second chance!


The doors to the Antique Room (located behind the library) will be opened for the annual “Barn Sale” which will feature antiques, New Goods, collectibles and household items, including glassware, all at bargain prices from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 5. The sale will be held in conjunction with the last day of the farmers’ market.


The time has arrived. Downloadable e-books are now available directly through the Back Mountain Memorial Library’s website. If you own an I-Pad, Kindle Fire or Simple Nook, simply visit: www.backmountainlibrary.org and click on the purple box, “eBooks are Here!” (The older basic Nooks or Kindles are not compatible with this program.)


Have your Luzerne County library card nearby as the site directs you to the “Magic Wall.”


From this page, you can apply for a free Blio account (app) which will be necessary to download books to your device. You may also visit www.blio.com to create your free account.


The Magic Wall shows dozens of featured titles available for downloading, including fiction/non-fiction, children’s books and young adult titles. Click on a book cover to get a synopsis or reader reviews. You can begin downloading your choice immediately by clicking on “Checkout Now”. If you have any questions, call the library at 570-675-1182 for assistance.


Now that you will be checking out even more books, some in person and some on your electronic device, the library is offering you an exciting opportunity to come and discuss what you’re reading.


A new Book Discussion Club is forming at the library beginning at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 24. Call the library to register for this formational meeting where you will join with the facilitator to discuss upcoming book titles.
