Chamber staff were still calculating the final total at press time. More than 500 people turned out for the cook-off, where they were able to buy brisket, ribs, chicken and sausage at the food tent — and participate in live and silent auctions and other activities (e.g., a jail where people could have their friends locked up). Daytime entertainment included presentations by Elvis impersonator Rob Carter, the Solid Gold Dancers, the Canyon Lake Celtic Dancers, and the Red-Hot Chili Peppers dance group. Then, live “Original Texas Music” by the band 277 South and a dance kicked off at 7 p.m. and went on until nearly midnight, after which parties continued at many of the campsites.

New Braunfels Heraldf^eitung TVE PRESTON MEMORIAL LiBRARY Free access to books now just a tap away By Linda C. Jacobson Special to the Herald-Zeitung Not long ago, the idea of using a phone to check out and then read or listen to a book from the library wasn’t even a consideration. Then along came those smart phones and other devices that end in words like “Pod,” “Pad” and “Reader.” And then came something called apps, short for applications, that you can download and easily access from your mobile device with just a tap on the screen. This technology has revolutionized the way many of us get our information these days. And now there’s even an app that lets you check out a library book by usingyourTye Preston Memorial Library card. TPML is one of eight libraries that joined a growing consortium called Lone Star Digital Library about four months ago with the purpose of sharing in the technology to bring library materials, including audiobooks and eBooks, to patron’s smart phones or other mobile devices. More than 700 titles are available. Other libraries in the consortium include New Braunfels Public Library, Schertz Public Library, and Seguin-Guadalupe County Public Library. Lone Star Digital Library is powered by OverDrive, a full-service distributor of eBooks, audiobooks, music and video. Checking out the materials is free but you will need to download and install software, which is also free, library director Roxanna Deane added. Since the titles are on loan, just like they would be from any library, they wiU expire at the end of the lending period. However, that happens automatically so there are never any late fees. Different apps are needed for different products. For audiobooks, music, and video, you’ll download the OverDrive Media Console. To read eBooks, users will need AdobeDigital Editions. Titles can be enjoyed immediately or transferred to a variety of devices, including iPod, Sony Reader, and many others. Some audio titles can also be burned to CD to listen on-the-go. To access the Lone Star Digital Library, first go to www.tpml.org and log into your account. You will need your TPML library card number and your telephone number. If you don’t have a TPML library card you can get one, for free, by visiting the library, completing a short form and presenting a valid photo ID.
