Cassidy, Queen's Square | September 1, 2021
The early days of September tend to feel like a fresh start. The summer is winding down, a new school year is beginning, and images of day trips begin to shift from beaches to apple orchards as we start to settle into a new season.
At Idea Exchange, we love fresh starts. We are always looking for new stories, fun programs, and incredible technology to share, and we want all of Cambridge to enjoy them with us. To help make that happen, we’ve joined other libraries across North America and permanently eliminated all overdue fines on late materials and removed all existing overdue fines.
Whether you’re new to Idea Exchange, or it’s been a little while, here’s a refresher on what your free Idea Exchange membership card opens doors to:
- Thousands of books for every audience
- A growing collection of online resources, including ebooks, eaudiobooks, movies, magazines, music, online learning and more, brought directly to your device, wherever you are
