If you are currently using Universal Class, Transparent Language, RBDigital magazines, or any EBSCO Host library services, please be aware that policy changes are happening July 1, 2018 that may require you to re-enroll in RBDigital’s services. For Universal Class, Zinio magazines, and Transparent Language you may still use the same credentials (user names and passwords) but the new app environments and database changes require signing up all over again. In the case of Transparent Language, you will be required to re-enroll and your history will be lost. We apologize for any inconvenience. On the bright side, we will be adding ACORN TV (the best of British broadcasting) and access to the different databases will be from one convenient location.
Just in time for the royal wedding, we have dropped Recorded Books’ “Indie Flix” in favor of “Access on Demand.” This new video service will offer a wider variety of educational films that support grades K to 12 education and adult life-long learning. Check out their 48-minute documentary on Prince Harry before the big wedding tomorrow.

In addition to their annual membership drive, the Friends of NAPL are also accepting donations of gently used books for their fall book sale. Please check the condition of your donated books and make sure they are in best condition for re-sale. Every year we send many books off to recycling, creating lots of work for our city maintenance crew, the staff and the Friends. Among the things we cannot sell; encyclopedias, text books, Reader’s Digest Condensed books, musty or damaged books. Than you for your support and consideration. Looking forward to the September sale, the NAPL Staff.
