The Midnight Hour

The library is closed for the day and you realize you forgot to return your books and DVD's that are due.  You're looking at those 'late' items wondering what options there are to avoid late charges.  You can return your material in the parking lot book drops before we open for the next business day to take advantage of our grace period.  The first book drop of the day uses the previous day's date.  You will not incur a fine for material due the day before.  Most items can go in the drop, only museum passes and Nooks need to be returned at the Circulation desk.  Renewing online is another option.  The system renews items by date, so all material due that day can be renewed before 11:59pm without a late fee.  If you wait until the midnight hour, 12am, a fine is generated.  Choose the option that best fits your schedule.

Dear New City Library Cardholders,

I thought it would be good to share with you some of my observations about the New City Library and its staff.  Following is my first Director's Report as Interim Director to the Board of Trustees of the New City Library; it addresses these topics. 

I welcome your comments, suggestions, and concerns on what follows or on any other library matter of interest to you.

Website of the Month

JUNE'S WEBSITE

Clarkstown Central School District

As the school year comes to end, families are excited about relaxing, sleeping in, camp, and vacations away from home.  But before you get too caught up in those lazy days, you should think about summer reading.  Research has shown that      

“… the best predictor of summer loss or summer gain is whether or not a child reads during the summer." 

Dig Into Mysteries

DetectiveWANTED!

Young detectives needed to find clues, discover evidence and solve crimes. No experience necessary.  Mondays, July 8, 15, 22 at 7pm.  Must be entering Grades 3 or 4.  Registration begins on June 24th.

 

Better Than Google

You may have noticed that our magazine and database listing looks quite different.  It has now been put on a libguide (a customized guide created with specialized software) featuring our magazines, databases, and web sites that wll enhance your research experience. It was created by the Ramapo Catskill Library System and handed off to each library to maintain. What does this mean for you?  Since we no longer have to go through a third party (over-worked Jerry at RCLS), changes can be implemented, and problems can be solved much more quickly.

In addition, not only are our subscriptions listed, but Jerry had added some great websites as well, such as Census 2010 Local Data, NADA and Kelley Blue Book car price guides and other helpful aids. An added bonus is that our databases are getting used more often! It is convenient to have all our offerings on one page, and the subject headings will take you right to your area of interest. It really is better (and more reliable) than Google.
