Better Than Google

Last summer, the dreaded Ebola virus was featured heavily in the news. Everyone was worried about the spread of this disease and the alarming death rate in Africa. How did it compare to the Black Death that ravaged medieval Europe?  What would have it been like to be a victim of that plague that decimated the population of Europe by more than a third? The prescribed remedies suggested at the time were designed to get rid of bad odors which they believed carried diseases.  Unfortunately, this medieval aromatherapy, while probably not doing much harm, didn't do any good. Medicine has come a very long way since then, and we can be thankful to live in these times, as the database Daily Life Through History proves.

A YEAR FOR RENEWAL

It sounds like a New Years resolution but I'm talking library cards.  This year adult library cards will be up for review to ensure your contact information is accurate.  Updating will require you to visit the library and present proof of a qualifying address and a picture ID.  A driver's license is preferred, but a passport along with a utility or similiar bill is fine as well.  It is not necessary to replace your existing card, once renewed you can continue to use the same card and ID number.  

You may only update your own card.  Accounts must be in good standing with balances below $10.  You can renew your card before it expires on your next visit to the library; once expired you won't be able to checkout, renew, place holds or download eBooks.  Thank you for understanding, bring your ID and leave the library renewed!
