BIG E-BOOK NEWS
axis 360 IS OUT
Sora IS IN!
As you oldsters know, for the past two years, Blake has enjoyed checking out free books through our Commonwealth e-Book membership. But, as often happens in life, all good things must eventually come to an end. Actually, the only thing ending is the way we take the books out, which can be summed up as follows:
AXIS 360 (the OK old system) - NO LONGER WORKING
SORA (the unbelievably awesome new system) - WILL SOON BE WORKING
"Hey, wait a minute" you may be thinking. "That means I can't check any e-Books out." Your deduction would be correct. For the next couple of weeks, Blake reading will be old school, but it's still a pretty good school. Please come by the LMC to satisfy most all of your 3-D reading desires.
Medfield's IT team is working, as you read this, behind the scenes to implement all of the technical changes and authorizations necessary to enact this big change. When completed, we'll be in touch to let you know how to activate the magic that is Sora!
