These books include popular authors like Jane Austen, Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, and Walt Whitman. Because these ebooks do not contain the same copyright restrictions that commercially available ebooks do, they can be viewed on a wider range of e-readers and mobile devices. "

Rochester Public Library’s Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches will be holding a Book fair at the Barnes & Noble store in Pittsford (3349 Monroe Ave.) on Friday, December 5, 2014 from 9 am to 10 pm.  

Thinking of buying books, DVDs, music or children’s games or even a Nook for a holiday gift? Why not do it and contribute to a worthy cause?  If you make your purchases at Barnes & Noble on December 5th and mention you’re there to support Monroe, Highland or Winton Branch at the checkout, a percentage of your purchase will be donated to the libraries!  This percentage will be used to purchase new materials for each of the branches. There will be a full day of programming at the store to make your shopping trip even more fun—see the attached flyer for details.   If you can’t make it to the store on the 5th, you can still support Monroe, Highland and Winton Branches by purchasing online with Barnes & Noble December 5th to 10th. Just enter Bookfair ID 11444023 at checkout.  The more sales that are made in the libraries’ name, the bigger percentage we will receive back from Barnes & Noble, so please consider purchasing something on our behalf. Every little bit helps!
