LIBRARY NOTES – March 2011

By Barbara Mellon

With all the snow, ice and frigid temperatures, you might think that business would be slow here at the Andes Public Library. Not the case, though. What better way to spend a cold winter night than to snuggle up with a warm cup of tea and a good book, or relax with family while watching a movie. We have plenty of both to satisfy a wide range of tastes. Even during the nastiest of weather, our patrons show up, bundled against the elements, in order to browse our shelves and racks.

Our four public access computers have been seeing a lot of use lately. The library staff was able to help one young woman from overseas reconnect with her family through Facebook and taught her how to upload photographs to share with them. And with tax season looming before us, patrons have been browsing for and printing the forms that, as a cost-saving means, our state and federal governments are no longer mailing out en masse. 

Attention Audiobook lovers! It’s that time again; we’ve just received a new shipment of audio titles as part of the Four County Library System Audio Circuit program. In addition, a local resident has just donated over 20 volumes from his own collection. And don’t forget; our participation in the new Download Zone program enables patrons to download a selection of audio titles to computers, MP3 players and other devices.

Your public library has many services to offer. We’re open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 1 pm – 6 pm, Wednesdays from 11 am until 4 pm, Thursdays 5 pm – 8 pm and Fridays from 1 pm until 5 pm. On Saturdays we have a wonderful group of volunteers who keep the doors open from 10 am until noon. Stop in to see us next time you’re in town.

Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
