The Nicholson Public Library has received a series of books from the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission.
"We are one of 6,000 libraries nationwide to receive a three volume set of books chronicling the efforts and undertakings of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States," library manager Rhonda O'Keefe states.
The three-volume set includes: "Around America to Win the Vote" by Mara Rockliff, "The Woman’s Hour: Our Fight for the Right to Vote" by Elaine Weiss and "National Park Service Women’s Suffrage Reader" (an anthology of essays).
It’s time for the children to head back to school and the Nicholson library is offering options.
"Whether it's virtual learning, home-schooling or face to face, the Nicholson public library is here to assist," O'Keefe said. "Through our digital services, we offer eBooks, eMagazines and audiobooks. Learning Express is the perfect tool to help children prepare for exams, such as: SAT, ASVAB, GED and more. The School Center offers resources for classroom and homework success. There is also a Computer Skills Center for learning basic computer skills and popular programs. All of these resources and more are available with your PINES library card. Stop by the Nicholson Public Library today and get the smartest card for your wallet."
The library also offers a large selection of DVDs and audio books available for checkout.
"We have public access computers available for all your needs," O'Keefe said. "The library offers: printing, copying, faxing and scanning for a small fee. Check out all of our resources at https://prlib.org."
