10 Things you May not Know about the Library’s Website
Our old website served us well, but it was time to move on to a new format. We’ve created a list of 10 great features of our new website.
- Mobile Ready
Take us with you on your smartphone. Our new responsive site now adjusts to your screen size and looks good on any device.
- App Page
Our app page goes great with our responsive site. Download one or all of our apps to access free content including ebooks, magazines, music, video and more. We have links to iOS and Android.
- Wynk, a Blynk and a Nod to Books
Two of our wonderful children’s librarians with many years’ experience are writing a monthly blog feature new and classic children’s books. If you love children’s books check out their latest blog Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! for books all about winter and snowy days.
- Help with eBooks
New to ebooks? Click on the eMedia link from the homepage and you’ll find red question marks next to the most popular eMedia collections. If you’re just beginning you can find out how to get started and if you’re a pro you can find out details about the services including how many items you can check out for the different services.
- Educator Collection
We love our teachers! Did you know that teachers can have their own special Library card. A teacher can request special collections of books for their classroom and get additional lending privileges.
- Book Club Kits
Do you and your friends meet monthly to discuss a book? Be your book club’s hero when you tell them that they no longer have to buy their own copy. You can check out a book club kit that has 12-15 copies of the book.
- New Item Lists
We know that you all love our new items lists! You can sign up to receive the email list in your inbox, use your RSS reader or just check the site for updates.
Use our site as a gateway to all of the latest music. You can check out our new CD list that I mentioned to find out what we’ve recently ordered. If you can’t wait head over to Hoopla or Freegal and get instant access. Hoopla allows 8 downloads per month and you can keep the full album for 7 days. On Freegal you get three songs per week and they are yours to keep.

Our new calendar gets social too. You can post our events to Facebook and Twitter or forward it to your friends using email. If you want you can also signup for email reminders or add it to your calendar.
