Guess what’s new? Amazon Kindle packages are now available for check-out.
These small-but-mighty electronic libraries are designed to give patrons an exciting look at the world of e-reading — and you’ll no longer need four book bags to take home an entire library of brand new titles.
For patrons 18 and older only, our Kindle fiction packages check out for 14 days (no renewals) and contain 30 to 40 titles on each Kindle. New titles will be added to the Kindles throughout the year, so check the catalog frequently for hot new reads.
Want to know if your favorite title is on a Kindle? Each of the books downloaded on our Kindles is searchable in our online catalog, so you can check the catalog and put the Kindle of your choice on hold anywhere you have access to our website, www.clarkbooks.org.
There are six mixed fiction Kindles, containing a diverse mix of best-selling fiction, and there are three Kindles available for each of the following genres: westerns, fantastic fiction, romance, mystery, and inspirational fiction. All checked out? Put one on hold and we’ll call you the minute it comes in.
Each package contains a Kindle touch or Kindle keyboard e-ink reader, an adapter, USB cable and basic instructions. So grab your library card and check out a Kindle today while they last!

At 2 and 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Kentucky Picture show presents the most talked about movie of 2012, starring Kentucky actress Jennifer Lawrence. In a dystopian future, the totalitarian nation of Panem is divided between 12 districts and the Capitol. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in an entertainment that is a brutal retribution for a past rebellion.
The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors while the citizens of Panem watch.

She and her male counterpart Peeta are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
