While You're Waiting.....

Libraries are great except for one thing.  You can't always get what you want when you want it.  We know it is frustrating to wait for a long time for Fifty Shades or anything by James Patterson.  However, there is no need to go bookless!  Here are some new titles that you may enjoy while you are waiting.

Better Than Google

LearningExpress Library is one of the most valuable databases we have.  In my opinion, it is an undiscovered treasure that every patron should know about and use often.  You will find it on our business database page, and also on the students page, and sign in with your New City library card.
  Whether you are a fourth grader who needs extra help in math, a college graduate preparing for the GRE, or looking to acquire or refresh computer skills, LearningExpress is the place to go.  The database is made up of e-books, courses, and practice tests.  In the comfort of your own home, or the library, you can learn new skills, and polish up old ones.

Better Than Google

Sources of information come and go in the library.  Reliable print sources are replaced by their on-line versions.  Less and less is available in print.  In fact, users of Morningstar will be sad to learn that by the end of the year, it will no longer be available in print in its award winning (yes, there really are awards for binders) binder.

"The world of libraries is changing, and we have to change with it." Anthony W. Marx, President of the New York Public Library

Remember when in order to do a paper for school, you had to come into the library for the information?  Remember running in before the library closed on Sunday night (yes, we used to be open until 8:00 on Sundays during the school year) and feverishly photocopying from the reference books?  As a librarian for many years, I helped many a panic-stricken student who was desperately trying to piece together enough information to complete the assignment while the angry parent hissed "I told you not to wait until the last minute..." Well, they did and we helped them the best we could.
