One Click Digital (audiobooks) Media Manager now available for Macs!

We received this press release from the One Click Digital folks (formerly NetLibrary) and wanted to pass it along:

We are happy to announce the launch of the Mac-compatible version of the OneClickdigital Media Manager. All Mac users will now have access to the new Mac-compatible OneClickdigital Media Manager, which can be downloaded through Apple's App store. The link to this program is available on the Help/User Tutorial page, and at other locations throughout the OneClickdigital site.

The Mac Media Manager will allow Mac users (with OS versions Snow Leopard, Lion, and higher) to install the Media Manager on their computers, giving them access to your library's entire audiobook collection.

In addition, we have made some other enhancements behind the scenes that will significantly improve the speed of the OneClickdigital site. And be on the lookout for the OneClickdigital iPhone app, which is coming soon. We’ll let you know as soon as it is available.

Happy listening!

February - Discovery Reef Exhibit

Discovery Reef, a unique traveling exhibit that brings coral reefs to life, will be on display in our Children's Department during the month of February. This interactive display developed by Mote Marine Laboratory of Sarasota offers a glimpse into the inner workings of reefs — vital habitats for thousands of marine species — through hands-on educational panels and live video conferences.

We are having two public all-ages interactive video conferences with a marine science educator from Mote Marine Laboratories on Wednesday, February 8th at 2pm and Wednesday, February 15th at 2pm. Each session will last about a half hour and no registration is necessary.

We also have several live teleconference spots open for groups of 10-25 children. Those interested in reserving a spot should call the Children's Department (813-749-1179) for available times and dates.

Discovery Reef is one of three traveling exhibits developed by Mote’s SeaTrek program, which offers exhibits to museums, libraries and other venues in the U.S. and beyond.

This exhibit is sponsored by Verizon.
