Word nerds and bird nerds unite! Try this month's brainteaser from the Puzzlemaster Deck eBook series by NPR's puzzlemaster, Will Shortz (available on Hoopla). Answers are found at the end of the newsletter.
Start with a word meaning 'on fire', add the letter O at the end, and you'll get the name of a bird.
What bird is it?
Does Libby/OverDrive have fewer items now?
We’re no longer sharing materials with Black Gold libraries, so the catalog is smaller. We are working hard to add patron suggestions and new titles, and we'll be adding more titles in the coming months. Please let us know if there's something you'd like that we don't have. We also suggest trying our other download and streaming services, Hoopla and cloudLibrary. The apps are available at your favorite app store.
How do I remove Black Gold from my Libby/OverDrive?
If you have anything currently borrowed from Black Gold on Libby, it will stay there until you've returned the book. Black Gold should automatically disappear when you've added your County of SLO Public Libraries card and viewed your account or checked something out. We don't recommend uninstalling/reinstalling the app—That might erase certain tags, lists, or histories.
You can also remove the Black Gold card by selecting it, then selecting Actions (ACTIONS is written on the card).
