Spring is coming and the Friends are starting to collect gently used books for their annual fall sale. We ask that you donate books, DVDs, and CDs in good condition that would be suitable for resale. Please no textbooks, condensed books, or moldy books. Puzzles and games in good condition are fine but we are no longer selling VHS or cassette tapes. Thank you for supporting your local library with donations.
If you haven’t experienced “Access On Demand” look under E-Resources and sign up with your valid library card for a host of informational films designed for inquiring minds. Featured this month —ten engineering projects that changed the course of American history. Or ace your “Women’s History Month” term paper by discovering some truly unique American ladies.
Beginning February 6, MassHire will be holding office hours in the library’s cafe on the first floor from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays. We are pleased to partner with MassHire and hope their presence here will support our patrons and residents who may be looking for work, polishing their resumes, or looking for other employment support. Library patrons are still welcome to read the local papers or select magazines from the cafe but we politely request that you do not use the room for family visits, lengthy phone calls or other types of meetings on that day. You are welcome to take magazines and newspapers into other areas of the library.
NAPL seeks submissions for new library card
Are you an aspiring artist? Do you know one? The North Adams Public Library is looking for a new library card design. We would like your rendering of an iconic Northern Berkshire scene or artistic design of anything related to the library to be considered for the face of our new card. We are looking for submissions of original art from children, teens, and adults. Your photos or original artwork must be executed in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Paint, or Adobe PDF and need to be high resolution for our 3 3/8” x 2 1/8” cards. Oh, and printable in CYMK color range. We can help you with these requirements.
Winners of first place choice and runners-up will be announced by late spring. There will be a small honorarium and the lasting fame of your artwork on our card. Please bring you submissions, carefully documented with your name, address, and phone number to Mindy, Kim, or Sara at the North Adams Public Library.
