Playing and Planning with Words

The New City Library is beginning the process of writing a five- year plan of service.   One important element is to look at the Library’s Mission and Vision Statements.   The Library’s current mission statement is five paragraphs long and contrary to current business practice of having something concise and easily known. In working with the staff of the New City Library, the new mission statement being proposed is:   ”The mission of the New City Library is to inspire ideas, enrich lives and create community”.   I would like to hear from you on this matter and would be interested in your opinion.

New DVD Releases For March 30th

We have three new DVDs for Tuesday, March 30th.  They are:

Wonderful World (Matthew Broderick)


THE FLOWER OF CHIVALRY: MEDIEVAL ROMANCES

Codex Manesse, Bergner von HorheimIf a lover of romantic historical fiction were to search our catalog for "medieval romance," she might get a bit confused.  You see, she'd find medieval romance... but she'd also find medieval romance!  (See what I mean by "confused"?)  The same term-- "medieval romance"-- gets used to describe two very different bodies of literature.  

NEW SERVICES - SUCCESS!

We are amazed and gratified at the resounding acceptance of our new circulation desk and new hold system, the self- checkout machines and in-house book return.  Staff has been available to introduce the new features and will continue to work with you.  Now that you've gotten the hang of checking out there are other features on the self checkout, including renewing and the ability to review your account.  The next time you visit take note of the video display that was installed today. 

Library usage is increasing and staff members are busier than ever working to meet your needs.  Thanks for your patience and support.
