All require a more-or-less up-to-date version of flash and an Internet connection. They work just as well on Linux computers/pads as they do on Windows and Macs.

The Friends of the Takoma Park Library has given us these 1 year test subscriptions as a gift. Thank you to:

— Everyone who donated books for the book sales, or came and bought them.

— Everyone who gave donations directly to the Friends of the Library.

— Everyone who played golf at the Morrisey Tournament or joined in the evening party. The Morrisey Tournament has been our biggest fund-raiser.
