Want something to read but can’t get to the library? Have an iPad, Kindle, Nook, Kobo or other reader? The children’s digital catalog is now available. Just select your book and download to your device. Remember that older readers need to synch with a computer and your library card number needs to be current with under $10 in fines. You may also have to “hold” the digital copy the same way you would request a hard copy of the book. If you run into any trouble just ask us to walk you through it. Here’s the link, check it out http://digitalbooks.cwmars.org/829516FF-95F4-472F-BD36-CD250ACBA3E5/10/45/en/default.htm

Please, no personal cell phone conversations in the library. If must use your cell phone, the stairwell between the second and third floor near the Reference Dept. is available. Exceptions may be made for emergencies. Texting and web apps like Facebook are allowed.
Patrons may use SKYPE in the smaller front room on the main floor, if conversations are held at a reasonable level. If you are having an interview or require privacy, please inquire about the possibility of using the third floor meeting area if staffing is available.
Cell phone use is not permitted in the Children’s Department unless it is an emergency.
We’re starting a new program, a “brown bag” lunch in the small meeting room on the 3rd floor of the library every Tuesday with a showing of a selected TED Talks streamed through the Internet. “TED Talks ……ideas worth spreading” are short (12 to 60-minute) videos that explore the world of far-ranging ideas. Our focus for the series will be inspirational people, community, and health care concerns. Bring a brown bag lunch, pull up a chair and watch a televised TED Talk. These 12 to 20-minute inspirational talks cover every subject under the sun.
So pack a snack and join us at the “Mansion” for some great ideas and “Lunch with TED”.
