If you have been using our Digital Magazines you may have noticed a new feature…back issues!
Until last week the only issues available to be checked out were current ones. Now you have the option to check out previous issues too.
While you are browsing our digital magazines collection you will see a new ‘Back Issues Available’ option for all of our magazines. That option will show you all previous issues of that magazine you can check out.
There are aren’t many back issues available right now (we’ve only been offering digital magazines for a few months) but the collection will grow. We are very happy to be able to offer this option to you. Hope you like it!
If you haven’t tried out our digital magazines and would like to learn more go here for more information.
Starting next week, we will be celebrating Fire Safety Month with our friends from Henrico County Fire Department.
Firefighters will visit some of our libraries to discuss fire safety with preschoolers and their families. A fire truck may be available for a close-up look if it isn’t called to duty.

Finding a good app can be a daunting task.
Finding high-quality apps that kids want to play repeatedly is an even more daunting task.
After all, the App Store and Google Play both have more than one million apps available to download.
What qualities make an app worthwhile, and how do you find these apps? How much should you pay for an app? How do you turn off in-app purchases?
Get the answers to these questions and others at Appy Hour, at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3 in the storytime room at the Tuckahoe Area Library. The presentation will also include an app recommendation section, which will highlight a number of apps for Apple and Android devices.
Feel free to bring your app-enabled device to the program and let us know about your favorite apps.
While the apps being recommended at this program are geared toward children, the program is for adults only.
