Ebooks for Free

Looking for more than Overdrive offers?

Want free books for your e-readers?

We’ve got you covered!

First, you can find free ebooks for the kindle or nook by searching Amazon or Barnes & Nobles sites and selecting for price: low to high. Wow, you just found a lot of books, didn’t you? Continued. 

Yes, the library offers free ebooks through Overdrive, click here for more details. But if you can’t find anything to read there, as the collection is somewhat limited, try looking at these suggestions for your e-reading pleasure.

Artist’s Group

A laid-back bunch making beautiful art happen right here in Sanbornton.

The Sanbornton Artist’s group, a lively bunch of painters, and mixed-media artists, meets weekly at the library on Thursday afternoons. If you would like to join them you are welcome, any stage of skills welcome. You can find the schedule here.

The Woodman Room offers a large, light space to work in, and the other artists a supportive group to work with. Many good-humored stories fly as they come together to create.

Work in progress and tools of the trade.

Book Group Meeting

The Sanbornton Public Library Book group will be meeting upstairs at 7:00 pm on January 9th to discuss The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.

We welcome any who would like to join us, and we will be choosing next month’s book at the meeting. If you’d like to participate for that, we are open to suggestions for great reads!

Was your New Year’s resolution to read more? The Book Group meets very informally every 6 weeks or so throughout the year, and it’s a great way to keep yourself motivated to read, and have good conversations about the books you have read and many other things as well.

Holiday Open House

Today and tomorrow the library is hosting an open house. Come in and see us, there are refreshments, crafts, and good cheer in abundance. Storytelling was a big hit this morning, and you can catch it again Saturday morning.

For the younger set, reindeer puppets to make, and paper angels will amuse. We are waiting for some more paper snowflakes to hang up in the children’s room, too, so come make a few for us.

For the adults, we offer conversation, cookies, and coffee. Visit, and you never know who you might run into… old friends, your neighbors, it could be anyone!
