More Ways to Find the Book

If you miss the Sept. 26 event, any remaining free copies of the book will be available at the Adult and Children's Reference Desks. If you didn't get one, or prefer a different format, you can always borrow from the Library. Copies are available to borrow, including the e-book and digital audiobook versions in our digital platform, Libby. Link to Libby for desktop here or the Libby app here. If you can't attend our screening of the documentary film, William and the Windmill, it is available to Nanuet cardholders through a streaming service called Kanopy.
