Need for quiet

There needs to be a chat room for people who congregate and talk non-stop in groups.  This way they don't disturb people trying to read.  This is a very noisy library.  At Nyack Library you can hear a pin drop.

Today's public library is a center of the community, a place where neighbors, friends, and students meet whether by chance or appointment. The staff will enforce the patron code of conduct policy if conversation reaches a volume or duration that proves disruptive to fellow patrons, but we will not shush. 

We are one of the more busy libraries in the county.  Our patrons and staff are engaged, educated, and vibrant people who thrive on social interaction.  We'd hate to squash that.

Better Than Google

Remember the Rolodex? If you're no longer in the first flush of youth, you probably do.  It was a handy little tool for keeping track of what you needed to know, such as contact information, handy facts (e.g. the longitude and latitude of New City) and other things you needed to have at your finger tips. Of course, it was a useful little place for librarians to jot down and keep those important bits and pieces of miscellanea for ourselves and our colleagues.  Naturally, it had to be updated for currency.  One year, due to my neat handwriting, I was chosen for this important task.  While New City remains at the same location, other information had to be checked to make sure it was still correct.  I regret to say that I never finished my task and that was partly due to the arrival of the Internet.
