Online NY Death Records +

I recently saw an email that reminded me of a great site, New York Death Records, Indexes and Obituaries. It is listed as a Genealogy Records Guide for New York City and State. If you look at the web site, www.deathindexes.com/newyork, you will find New York counties with those records that are digitized. Records and indexes are submitted so the county listings may be spotty. For instance, Rockland County shows cemetery records and funeral homes from the collection of the Genealogy Society of Rockland County. Despite the disparity in listed records, it may be worth your while to check it out. You never know, you may find a lost relative!

Staff Member to Retire

Sally Pellegrini, Local History and Community Relations Head, has decided it is time to retire. Her departing day will be October 24. Sally has made many wonderful library friends through her years at New City Library. She is throwing a reception on October 19, 1:30 to 3 PM. Please stop by to wish her adieu and allow her to thank people for their support and patronage.

A change is coming soon ........

Within the next few weeks, the Internet-access computers in the Children's Library will be updated with a new log-in procedure.  All young internet users will need a library card to use them.  Users will be able to load money on their account for printing and the time limit will be automatic.  This Envisionware product is already successfully in use on the adult computers.  Please note that the Children's Library serves those patrons up to age 12 and people 13 and older will have to use the nternet computers for teens/adults.

Hidden Gems - Check it out

No, I'm not writing about a new video game.  'Hidden Gems' refers to the Library's magazine collection located on the lower level reachable by stairs or elevator.  Next time you're at the library take a moment to see over 100 titles on display.  The wide variety of subjects informs, entertains and hopefully expands your knowledge or perks your interest to learn something new.  Magazines in binders do not circulate, please read them at the library, but lift the display shelf to find current issues and a year of back issues.  Topics include art, architecture, cooking, crafts, decorating, economics, entertainment, parenting, health, hobbies, home, news events, senior living, travel, woodworking and so much more.   Magazines are shelved alphabetically and can be reserved. Find titles for the younger set and their parents in the Children's library.  If you think the only place that has magazines is your doctor's office be prepared to be amazed.  Our collection dazzles.  Take a look, make your selection and check them out at the main level circulation desk.  Circulating magazines have a 2-week loan period.
