Just When You Thought Barnes and Nobles was out of the Tablet Business!

Barnes and Noble has partnered with Samsung to create the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet. What's great about this table is it uses the Google Play Store and comes with the Nook app built in. The Galaxy Tab closest in scale to the average book so it makes reading on it easy.
Instead of overlaying the bookstore like the Nook Color and Nook HD tablets had, you access all Barnes and Nobles items through a collection of Nook-branded apps:
  • Highlights – the catchall for your notes and highlights from your reading
  • Library – All of your titles, from books to magazines.
  • Search – Search your titles or the shop.
  • Shop – Books, magazines, movies, TV, Apps, and more!
  • Settings – access the nuts and bolts of your Nook account, and change the way the reading software behaves.
  • Today – Recommendations based on your shopping and reading activity in the Nook apps.
  • Apps – A handy place to find apps for your Nook (including the OverDrive Media Console App).
So if you are looking to buy a tablet this holiday for yourself or as a gift, take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet (Retails for $179.99 ) and get free eBooks, eAudio books, magazines and movies from the library.
To learn more about how to buy a tablet or reader this holiday season by visiting one of the seven libraries which will be hosting the Virtual Library Petting Zoo.  Come in and meet Virtual Library staff and learn which device is right for you and how to get free library content on a tablet or eReader.

Halloween Favorites

Addams Family Season 1 - Halloween with the Addams Family
(scroll down to episode 7)
A pair of bank robbers are welcomed as Halloween trick-or-treaters by Morticia and Gomez. The creepy atmosphere of the house, Morticia's smoldering holiday punch and Lurch's ominous presence impel the crooks to abandon their plans to add Addams money and jewelry to their bank loot.

Elosie's Rawther Unusual Halloween
Every Halloween, the ghost of The Plaza's most legendary and outrageous inhabitant of old, Diamond Jim Johnson, returns to haunt the halls. But when the hotel's most famous 6 year-old girl, Eloise, encounters this frightening phantom, nobody believes her story of old-time spooks with larger than life appetites.

The Dog Who Saved Halloween
Zeus & the Bannisters have moved into a new house, just in time for Halloween!  Everything seems to be going well until they notice strange lights and sounds coming from neighbor Eli's (Lance Henriksen of ALIENS) house.  When George (Gary Valentine of TV's KING OF QUEENS) takes it upon himself to find out what is going on, he enlists the help of a very unlikely pair (lead by Dean Cain of TV's LOIS & CLARK), and a surprising partnership forms.  After the trio and George's wife Belinda (Elisa Donovan of CLUELESS), get trapped in the spooky house, only Zeus is left to save Halloween!

 By the Light of the Halloween Moon
Join the fun as a brave young girl, who would rather play a trick than be gobbled up as a treat, is the star of this spirited romp under an old wooden bridge by the light of the spooky Halloween moon. Narrated by Sherry Stringfield with music by John Jennings.
