New DVD Releases for January 26th

Downton Abbey: Season 6

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten?!?!?!?!

Yes! New City Library joins many other libraries throughout the country to promote family reading through this initiative. But...1,000 Books!! Impressive, you say? Too hard, you think? Well - in this program, if you read just three books a day to your young ones, you will have read over 1,000 in just one year! Do that for two years, or three years...you get the picture. Each child listening to the story can count that book. What child doesn't love to hear the same book over and over before bed? Well - each time that book is read, it counts! Not so formidable a task, now, is it? Just stop by the children's reference desk to pick up your first reading log and we'll tell you all about it. But..does this really impact a child's development? Studies have shown that children as young as infancy benefit from hearing stories and language, as reasearch shows that during the first year infants' brains are developing the neural connections they will use for language and high cognitive functions through the rest of their lives.

Better Than Google

We have a new addition to our database collection and it comes courtesy of the Ramapo Catskill Library System.  It is called Glassdoor Jobs and Recruitment Site, and will be a boon to all those job seekers out there.  Due to its unusual content, you can search for a job title, but more than that, you can explore the corporate culture of an employer. Glassdoor holds a growing database of more than 8 million company reviewss, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, benefits reviews, office photos and more. Unlike other jobs sites, all of this information is entirely shared by those who know a company best — the employees. Add to that millions of the latest jobs — no other site allows you to see which employers are hiring, what it's really like to work or interview there according to employees, and how much you could earn.
