I would love to try a nook. I have been on the fence about getting one. What a great idea. I am closest to the Philadelphia City Institute, just let me know how to go about picking it up. Thank you so much.

Hi, Joanne: Just stop by Philadelphia City Institute and let the librarian know that you're interested in checking out a Nook. He or she will help you get everything set up and squared away!
