Library Navigation Tips


Search Entire Book: When you click on a book title scroll down to the bottom of the page. You will notice “Search Entire Book” on the left side of the column. Near that click “Launch Book”, after the book loads, hold down the control key and press “F” to search the book for a word or phrases. Copy and use whatever you like. You can also read the book using this window.

Title Column:  Click on the book title to Read or Listen to our Audio books. We have given you the option of copying all or part of our books from the read selection. Most on line book publishers do not give you this option.

Title Column:  When a book title appears twice, there are two types of essay contests for this book (which have a 100 to 1 chance of winning).

Description Column: Some descriptions are very short, others may be several pages. They give you some information about what you may find in the book and how the book may relate to other books and events. They are a good source for understanding Theodore Roosevelt’s planned approach for improving government.

Description Column: These are public access you do not need to be a member to read them. Item  “25 Book Descriptions” is completely public access including the audio version. If you would like different audio voices, there is a way but you will need to purchase, TextAloud software, a $30 program for $20 through our advertising department $10 off coupon. Sorry, I would make it free if I could but we cannot distribute other voices to the public because they have copyright protection. I personally like Microsoft Sam which has been made available for all of our audio books.

Description Column: Book descriptions are color coded so that you know which descriptions are included in 25 Book Descriptions Part One

Description Column: Color code green indicates that this individual description is included in the 25 Book Descriptions Part One.

Description Column: Color code red indicates that there is not a book description written. Perhaps you can be the Author.
