To provide more convenience for patrons who desire flexibility regarding computer usage,  we are making the following changes as of Wednesday, July 11:

Each library cardholder who logs in to one of our computers will have 3 hours of computer usage that day.  This can be divided into any number of sessions, as long as the total time doesn't exceed 3 hours. There will no longer be 15 minute extensions, since those are built into the three hour total.

Non-cardholders can obtain one visitor pass per day at the Adult Reference Desk. The pass is good for one hour of computer time, which can be used all at once or divided into shorter sessions.

Have you visited the lower level of our Cook Park Library since the children’s department moved upstairs last year? Every week we still encounter patrons who are pleasantly surprised when they take the stairs (or elevator) downstairs to explore the adult materials now housed in the former children’s room. When you pay our lower level a visit you will find a wide variety of materials, including many new releases, in these categories:

  • Music CDs and Scores
  • Mysteries
  • Science Fiction
  • Paperbacks
  • Book Club Selections
  • Oversize “coffee table” books
  • Genealogy and Local History, including microfilm
  • Plays and Poetry
  • Special Collections, including Exam Prep, Career, English Language Learning, Foreign Language (Spanish, Russian, Chinese, French), Automotive Repair, and Great Courses.

You will also find tables for studying, and a librarian who will be happy to answer your questions. Pay us a visit!
