Music, Movie, TV and Magazine Downloads
Pierce County Library customers can now download popular magazines, music albums, movies and television shows through two new services—free with a Pierce County Library card. Hoopla is an innovative new product that partners with public libraries to offer customers thousands of movies, television shows, and songs for free. Zinio is the world’s largest newsstand and was voted one of USA Today’s top apps for 2013.
Library Legislative Day
On Jan. 24, library staff participated in Washington Library Association’s annual Legislative Day. Managers traveled to Olympia to carry the library’s message to legislators. They met with nine senators and representatives and six legislative assistants, and dropped off packets and met informally with eight other congressional staff. They will follow up with elected officials once the session is over to invite them to events at their local library, and look for other ways to connect with them throughout the year.
