How Copyright Protects Creators

World Book and Copyright Day

World Book and Copyright Day is more than just a symbolic date, it’s a reminder. We love being the champion of books and reading and all the benefits a lifelong love of learning can bring. However, as a Library, we must also uphold and honor the copyright laws that project the creators of that work. As information moves from the printed page into digital formats, things like access and fair use become bigger concerns. But what does that mean to the average reader? Should everything just be “open access”? Answers to these questions and more can be found in today's blog!

Books To Read During Classical Music Month

September is Classical Music Month and to celebrate we've put together a list of book and music titles for those that enjoy listening to Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Bach, or any one of the masters whose music lives on today. Whether you’re a classical music aficionado or just looking to expand your musical palette, we have plenty of resources to help you enjoy Classical Music Month. Below you will find a list of books and music and if you want even more resources, check out this additional list we created in our Overdrive Collection.
