Read-along book and CD kits are also great for those car trips!  We have a broad selection of picture book and beginner reader sets which often include music and sound effects.  Our extensive collection of books on CD for children includes all the latest hits -- and some old favorites the whole family will enjoy.  The stories range in length and content, so come on in and we'll help you choose some -- like Lemony Snicket?  Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus? Boxcar Children mysteries? James Patterson's Middle School Series? Junie B Jones? Dork Diaries? 39 Clues? Magic Tree House?  Well - you get the idea.  Stop in before you hit the road.

Director's Report November 2014

Director’s Report
November 2014

1.    Roof Project

By the time of the Board meeting the balance of the roof work should be completed.  The metal capping that comprises the perimeter of the library will have been replaced.  All of the loose bricks that affected the capping will have been pointed.  And the drain from the roof will have been installed successfully.  The drain was necessitated because water collected on the roof from rain storms.  The new roof drain required work by both the roofer and a plumber. 

It was a major project.  Kudos are extended to Shibu Abraham, Finance and Facility Manager, for his management of the project—from beginning to end.  Contrary to prior concerns the library never closed during the duration of the project.

Better Than Google

Are you getting ready to sell your old clunker?  Are you buying a new car?  If so, how do you know what is a fair price to ask or pay? 
For years, patrons would come to the reference desk for the little yellow books (the National Association of Auto Dealers, otherwise known as NADA) or the little Kelley Blue Books to check prices on new and used cars, including trade-in values. No longer must they come to the library, because you can access this information from home.  You can either log-on to the New City Library database page,and click on these listings, or, skip that step and log-on directly to kbb.org or nadaguides.com.
Kelley Blue Books is a free site and does accept automobile advertising--no surprise there.  However, it is very easy to find prices on new and used cars, customized to your specifications and zip codes.  In addition, it is a trusted source that librarians have used for years.
