Rosy and Bright

Herrnhuter Stern in OlbernhauToday may be black (at least for those of you braving the shopping malls), but the forecast for romance this holiday season is rosy and bright!  Your favorite authors have been hard at work this year penning new seasonal romances for you to enjoy, and they're flying off our shelves faster than snowflakes-- everything from Amish sweets to romantic suspense (even an LGBT holiday title!).

Text Messages

Last month Circulation Services highlighted the advantages of receiving due date reminders, pick dates for holds and overdue notices by E-mail. It is a cost saving measure for our patrons and the library. You can now register online for this service on this very website. Click on the 'Find an Item' tab above, then 'My Account' and select 'Switch to E-mail Notification.' Fill in the requested information and submit. 

Another service that might be of interest is Text Messaging, which is specifically for sending a pick up by date when a hold is available at the library.  While not as comprehensive, the message says you have 5 days to pick up your hold, those who keep a cell phone nearby might appreciate a text.  Sign up for this service at the Circulation Desk the next time you are in the library.  The best scenario is to give us your E-mail address and a mobile number.  You get the best of both worlds, a text and an E-mail.  

New DVD Releases for November 25th

We have five new releases for Tuesday, November 25th.  They are:

Expendables 3, The (Drama - Sylvester Stallone)

Giver, The (Drama - Meryl Streep)

Madea Christmas, A (Tyler Perry - Comedy)

November Man (Drama - Pierce Brosnan)

What If (Comedy - Daniel Radcliffe)


I should have brought along that audiobook......

Read-along book and CD kits are also great for those car trips!  We have a broad selection of picture book and beginner reader sets which often include music and sound effects.  Our extensive collection of books on CD for children includes all the latest hits -- and some old favorites the whole family will enjoy.  The stories range in length and content, so come on in and we'll help you choose some -- like Lemony Snicket?  Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus? Boxcar Children mysteries? James Patterson's Middle School Series? Junie B Jones? Dork Diaries? 39 Clues? Magic Tree House?  Well - you get the idea.  Stop in before you hit the road.

Director's Report November 2014

Director’s Report
November 2014

1.    Roof Project

By the time of the Board meeting the balance of the roof work should be completed.  The metal capping that comprises the perimeter of the library will have been replaced.  All of the loose bricks that affected the capping will have been pointed.  And the drain from the roof will have been installed successfully.  The drain was necessitated because water collected on the roof from rain storms.  The new roof drain required work by both the roofer and a plumber. 

It was a major project.  Kudos are extended to Shibu Abraham, Finance and Facility Manager, for his management of the project—from beginning to end.  Contrary to prior concerns the library never closed during the duration of the project. 

2.    Long Range Plan
