Infamous Insider - what's hot this week @ Sno-Isle

Welcome to Infamous Insider - the weekly feature that gives you tips about what's going on at the library - new items in the collection, indispensable online resources, or fun events you won't want to miss.

The Scar Boys : a novel: Written as a college admission essay, eighteen-year-old Harry Jones recounts a childhood defined by the hideous scars he hid behind, and how forming a band brought self-confidence, friendship, and his first kiss...

Not only does this look like a great book, there's a Spotify playlist so you can listen to the songs each chapter is named for.

Learn more about The Scar Boys at author Len Vlahos' website.

While we're on the subject of music, we have exciting news about Freegal, our music downloading service.  Not only can you continue to download three songs a week (and keep them!), you can now listen to streaming music for up to three hours a day.  You can even create playlists of your favorites.  But wait - there's more!  Freegal now offers video downloads too - one video counts as two songs toward your weekly limit.

I don't know about you, but I like free music!
