H-Irene and Your Library

Rube Goldberg Meets Library
The library was without electrical power and the Internet service we would have used to conduct business during all of its open hours from Monday, August 29th through Thursday, September 1st.

On Thursday, the library borrowed a car battery from Public Works. Using the battery and a power inverter, a laptop and a broadband wireless air card, we connected to our online library business system.  From there we tackled the backlog of materials returned to our book and video drops while the library was closed. Interesting experience using different tools to do what seems so easy on a regular day... 

Please note no overdue fines will be charged for materials due on any of the four days the library was closed to the public.
