Fall Festival Photos

Thank you to everyone who helped out and came to the Friends Fall Festival on Saturday, October 17th! It was a bit chilly but the children enjoyed our crafts, ring toss and even ices from the Kona Ice Truck. Wonderful treats were purchased from the baked sale and pumpkins went to new homes.

New Library Catalog and sign in for Overdrive!

We now have a new library catalog system – you can click on it from this website – on right hand side side. We hope you find it very user friendly!

Here is what will be different:

You can sign in to your own account using your library card number (ask us!) and the password is your telephone number without area code. Now you can renew your own books, see what you have checked out and send us suggestions. If you don’t get the online library newsletter, you can sign up for that also.

If you use Overdrive to download books and audios – the way to sign in has changed:

Your account number is still your four-digit library card number but without the 4272 in front of it. Your password/pin is your telephone number without area code and as 7 digits all together. Please let us know if you have any trouble – send us an email to newpl@comcast.net or give us a call at 778-8169.

You will be receiving automatic emails to reminder you when materials are due.
