In February 2014, the Sierra Vista Public Library will partner with the Henry Hauser Museum to host Journey Stories, a Smithsonian exhibition that focuses on accounts of travelers and travels.

Summer vacation is over, and even though it will be hot in Arizona for another few months, fall is just around the corner. There are a few new things at the Sierra Vista Public Library to keep people busy as we start the slide into the last quarter of the year.

Tired of the magazines that pile up around the house? Library personnel are excited to announce a solution. Try Zinio, the world’s largest electronic newsstand.

With just a library card, Zinio provides unlimited access to thousands of complete digital magazines, easily viewed on any Internet-enabled device such as a PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, Kindle and more. Zinio offers both children and adult magazines and includes many popular titles such as “Consumer Reports,” “Forbes,” “Bicycling,” “Men’s Fitness,” “Newsweek,” “Seventeen,” “Cosmopolitan,” “Car & Driver” and many more. There are no limits to the number of magazines that can be checked out, and no due dates – ever.

In February 2014, the Sierra Vista Public Library partners with the Henry Hauser Museum, 2950 E. Tacoma St., Sierra Vista, to host Journey Stories, a Smithsonian exhibition that focuses on accounts of travelers and travels – stories of hope and fresh starts, tales of the grim realities of forced migrations and catalogs of difficult journeys and exciting adventures.

As a preview to the Journey Stories discussion, the Fall Book Discussion theme this year will be “On the Road Again.” Revisit the Jack Kerouac classic, “On the Road,” with discussion on Sept. 18, followed by discussion on John Steinbeck’s “Travels with Charley” on Oct. 23. The series concludes on Nov. 20 with “Travels with My Aunt” by Graham Greene. Participants may attend one or all free sessions, but register early because space is limited.

A new computer class schedule was announced Aug. 1, so visit the library’s website for a complete schedule.

For more information on any and all library services, visit the Sierra Vista Public Library at 2600 E Tacoma St., call 458.4225, or go to www.SierraVistaAZ.gov/svlibrary. We at the library look forward to welcoming you soon.
