Cook Park Drive-Up Book Drop Update!
This Friday, December 2nd, a small ramp of concrete, built to curb height, will be installed by the Cook Park Drive-Up Book Drops to allow for easier access by smaller vehicles. While the concrete ramp is being installed, there will be a temporary book return in the parking lot, and the entrance from Brainerd Avenue will still be open for use.Add a comment
Here's this week's question from the library survey comments:
How can I find out about bestsellers on the library’s web site?
Right on the front page (http://www.cooklib.org) you will see covers of current fiction and nonfiction bestsellers. You can click on any cover to see the entire list with links to our catalog. You can also subscribe to receive the list each week in your email or as an RSS feed if you choose.
To find out about future fiction bestsellers, go to our Readers’ Services page and click on the Bestseller Preview link. You will see a list of books by bestselling authors that will be published in the next four months. They have been ordered by the library and you can go ahead and place holds on them.
You Ask, We Answer!

The comments submitted revealed that people have questions about some aspects of our facilities, web site, catalog and collections. The purpose of this blog is to answer one or more of those questions in each post. Have additional questions? Ask us and we'll answer!
Several comments in the survey mentioned frustration with the large yellow posts in front of the Book/AV return at Cook Park. Here's an update from Library Directory Stephen Kershner:
"The Cook Park Library has recently made changes to the drive up Book/AV Return to provide easier access when returning materials to the library. Smaller posts have been installed closer to the curb permitting drivers to reach the return chutes more easily. Pulling in the driver’s side outside rearview mirror permits an even closer approach. When weather permits, an asphalt pad will be installed at the return to raise the road level, permitting returnees in smaller cars to reach the chutes more easily. Your patience, cooperation and understanding during this construction period is much appreciated."
