Last Call! All Aboard Storytime! Toot! Toot!

Tuesday December 20 is the last storytime at the Congers Train Station this year.  Be sure to hop on board at 10 am and bring along your floor mat and a grown up!   Appropriate for 3 - 5 year olds.

The New Catalog

The new catalog is throwing us all (staff and customers) a few curves, but as with any large data migration and change in software, these "hiccups" can be expected.   The Ramapo Catskill Library System administrator is updating us frequently on the changes and updates they need to perform in order to make things run smoothly.  You may notice temporary loss of access when they make such changes.

DVD title searching can be done by first searching the title.  On the results page, under Media Type in the left-hand column entitled Limit Search Results, check off Physical Video Media and click on Include.  Give it a moment, and the DVD results will be culled out of the original results.  Using the Advanced Search to do this is a bit problematic right now, so we don't suggest that route. For new releases, use a keyword search such as "debt dvd" for the new release "The Debt."  See comments below for further explanation.

New Wrappers

The first phase for reserve notification is in place.  New City card holders are receiving pickup dates either by email or an automated phone message.  You will notice that wrappers are printed in a new format; the first 3 letters of your last name and the last four digits of your library barcode.  Having your library card in hand will facilitate finding your reserve.  Last names can start with the same three letters, so it wil be faster and more accurate to identify your material by the last 4 digits of your barcode. Names are shelved in alphabetical order, then we'll shelve according to numerical order.  For example, MAR 2486 will be shelved before MAR 9128.  If picking up items for family members it will be helpful to have their cards.  The self-checkout machines prevent errors by only allowing checkouts on the account that placed the reserve.  Your library card is the safest and most accurate way to protect your account and we encourage you to bring it with you every visit.

Winter Bird Count Under Way!

 

 

  Our year-round Backyard Nature program continues by participating in Project FeederWatch with The Cornell (University) Lab of Ornithology.  They collect information from birdwatchers throughout the USA and Canada to keep track of bird populations and increase scientific knowledge of changes in bird migration patterns.  Now our Winter children's garden is a haven for local birds!  Please take a moment to watch for birds in the garden when you next visit us!  Maybe you'll be lucky and see the Hairy Woodpecker who has been visiting our feeders recently.  We have many books to help you learn about and identify our local birds - come on over and check them out!

In January, there will be four Backyard Nature workshops - open to children from Clarkstown in grades 3 - 6.
