Welcome Family Researchers

Are you one of those who has decided to make a January resolution to research your family? You are not alone! The library is offering several genealogy how-to workshops during the cold months of January and February. The first was held January 8 and was a general overview to genealogy. But it's not too late to attend the others. Lecturer and genealogist, Tony Laurino will take the reins for the next three. On January 22 at 10AM ,Tony will review the use of primary records such as surnames. There are many issues using surname records, and Tony will help to clear up some of the misconceptions. During the next class, February 19, he will review secondary records such as military and census. The series ends February 26 with a look at the best web genealogy sites. If you are new to genealogy, mark these dates and attend. It will be a good investment at a good price! To register, call 634-4997 ext 139.

EBooks...Get Your EBooks Here!

A friend was asking me last week about what eReader to buy.  When I talked about the various formats and what the library supplies, she was surprised.  “You mean I can get ebooks from the library” she asked.  The New City Library has supplied downloadable audio books for many years and ebooks in the last few.

In anticipation of many people getting readers for the holidays, we just purchased a large number of new titles.  The various formats are still fighting it out for their share of the market place, but we ordered predominantly in the e-pub format which seems to be compatible with most readers.  This order was predominantly romance and mysteries, but we made certain we would have items currently on the New York Times Bestseller list.

We purchase copies that are only available to New City Library customers in addition to titles available to everyone in the region.  To get access to our titles, you need to log in with your library card and PIN.   You can go there directly by clicking HERE.
