Library now offers “Access on Demand”

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.

Access on Demand

 

Memorial Day weekend hours

The library will be closed Saturday, May 26 to Tuesday, May 28 for the Memorial Day weekend. Please do not leave books or donations out in the weather. We will back-date all materials to reflect the closure so no fines will accrue. Remember we have a host of electronic materials available including e-books, e-audio, and magazines available with your library card. Happy summer!

Remote users look for changes

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 that may require you to re-enroll in the service. 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.

Friends are now accepting books

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.

Music in the Mansion

Great concert with Stephanie and Robin last night. Almost 30 people enjoyed an hour of fabulous music. It’s a rare treat to see such talented performers up close and personal. Robin gave us an insider’s view of a pro struggling with some sound equipment issues but her voice intertwined with Stefanie’s remarkable footwork and powerful harmonizing created an intimate evening of music with friends. Thank you, Two White Girls and the Backbeat for a wonderful time.robin
