New App through the SLC

 

 

 

We are happy to announce that it is easier than ever to use the Fraser Public Library digitally with the new SLC Libraries Mobile app.

 

SLC Libraries Mobile makes it easy to digitally browse the libraries’ collections, get details on items, select an item, checkout or place a hold for later pickup, and even renew items previously checked out. eBooks can be checked out too with the touch of a button. The app’s location finder also lets patrons find the location and operating hours of the nearest library location. Comprehensive account management is built in too, including the ability to place and renew holds, view/pay fines and fees, and for families, members can link together digital library cards to easily manage multiple accounts.

 

SLC Libraries Mobile is available for Apple devices through the App Store and Android/Chromebook devices through Google Play.

 

Bookflix

 

 

BookFlix is a digital literacy resource ideal for tablets or computers for children Pre-K – grade 3. Not only will this strengthen literacy in young readers, it will also expose young readers to real world concepts and help to build their comprehension skills. There are digital non-fiction books, author biographies, fiction/non-fiction pairings and interactive games to build vocabulary skills.

Dungeons & Dragons
We now have two groups for D&D, and each month will feature a two-part story. We have switched the format from a campaign to two-shot stories so players can easily join in at any time. Pre-made character will also be available. This will be done along the lines of Adventurer’s league. Players will be able to reuse characters month to month however, depending on the month they may need to revise their character to correspond with the required level for the adventure being run. This information will be made available at the meetings and online. The two groups will also run the same content.
