More information on money saving:
We have computers for your use with internet access, and Wi-Fi for you to use on your tablet, phone or laptop while at the library. Wi-Fi is available 24 hours a day here at the library. So if the internet is too pricey for you to have at home, make use of this service.
The computers here at the library are connected to a printer and for a small fee you can write letters, term papers, and print off coupons. Just another way to save big money for your family.
Job hunting resources
One of the uses of the computers here at the library is to job search. The State Library of Kansas has a database that is just the right thing for a job search. To access this site, go to www.learningexpresshub.com. You can search for jobs, make a resume, and cover letter.
More of the series on Saving Money:
The cost of getting a movie for the weekend is going up. Save yourself some money and come to the library to check out a movie. We often have movies here that are available and can access movies from other neighborhood libraries in just a few days.
We get magazines each month that are available to read at the library. Just come in and sit in one of our comfy chairs to read.
The Erie City Public Library subscribes to the Erie Record, The Parsons Sun and The Chanute Tribune. Stop by to read the articles, check out the sale ads and read the classifieds.
This is the first of a series of ideas to save money, by using the Erie City Public Library:
eBooks & Audiobooks
eBooks are a great way to have books to read when you are on a trip and don’t want to lug a bunch of books with you. They can be expensive to buy so you might try the State Library of Kansas. The State Library of Kansas has a great variety of books available to download and enjoy and all you need is a State Library of Kansas library card. You can get that at your local library and its FREE!
Audio books are another way to enjoy books especially if you are busy and just don’t have the time to sit down and read. There are audio books for adults, teens and children. People often check them out for road trips, and often long haul truckers check them out to make their daily runs more enjoyable. The State of Kansas also loans out audiobooks online. If you are interested in these services you can access this it at https://kslib.info/128/Digital-Book-eLending. We would be glad to help you download the app for this service as well.

Make the Most of Your Library;
Get a library card. The first step, obviously, is to get a library card. They’re nearly always free, but you usually have to bring your drivers’ license and proof of address.
Ask a librarian. If you aren’t sure what your local library does or does not offer, don’t hesitate to ask. And if the library doesn’t offer a program that you’d like to see, suggest it! You might even head up a committee to start that particular program to benefit your whole community.
Use inter-library loan. Our library belongs to the Southeast Kansas Library System and uses a 46 library system. It is very much like being a branch of a large library and allows you to access the books in those libraries. Just ask for the book of your choice and we will try to get that for you.
Check the calendar. We post on our website at https://eriecity.mykansaslibrary.org/ and our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Eriekslibrary/
Beautiful tree is located across the street from the library. A lovely sight for a rainy dark fall day.
If you are out and about today, stop by for a good book, movie or just a cup of coffee. Have a stupendous day!
