Did You Know?

Not So Small Services @ your library
Our services certainly include the obvious; that is, we buy materials using your tax dollars and you borrow them. What we have learned, however, is some of our services fly slightly lower on your radar. Here's a few...

Deposit Collections
Our staff selects collections for delivery as deposit collections located at Chatham Acres and Bellwood Court senior housing centers. Collections are rotated every 4-6 weeks and consist of a hand-picked selection specific to each site. For additional information, contact Beverly Simmons, Older Adult Service Librarian, at 267-6621 or click Contact Us.

Art Prints to Go
Did you know you can check out art prints from the Library? Come browse the collection and borrow any of nearly 30 pieces for up to 8 weeks. A limit of 2 prints may be checked out at one time and may not be renewed. The collection is funded by the Friends of Library. Home staging anyone?

Speed Reads
With Speed Reads, you don't have to wait to read that latest bestseller from our 14-day loan collection. No requests or holds - if it's there, it's yours to check out for 7 days. Read with speed; the fine for a late speed read return is $1 per day.

Value Line
Value Line, an investment advisory service that rates hundreds of stocks as to safety, timeliness and projected price performance, is available in our print reference collection. It's best known for the Value Line Investment Survey, a comprehensive source of information and advice on approximately 1,700 stocks, more than 90 industries, the stock market, and the economy.
