Greenwich Library Is Open Today, Sunday, November 16th

| No Comments


We're open 1-5 today.  If any student needs help with a school assignment or anybody else with something they need, I'll be on the first floor reference desk during those hours.

Here's another reminder (the last one was over a year ago) that Greenwich Library currently offers an email service for patrons who can't come into the building to ask a reference question (or help in general). We set up this service so patrons, especially those with disabilities, as well as working professionals and others "on the run", could get in touch with the library without any hassle. 

To access this service, click here

The Student Leaders and I will be overseeing the MakerBot demo at Greenwich Library on Saturday, July 19th at 2:00pm in the second floor meeting room.  Full details here

Greenwich Library now has a new digital library catalog called  BiblioCommons.  Learn all about it by clicking here.

And starting this week, every Wednesday until June,  the library's Technology Training Center will have a hands-on training session to show the public how to use the catalog. Click here for more info.

ADAPAGETODAY.pngIn our continuing efforts to provide better service to patrons with disabilities, my colleagues (thanks gang!) and I have slightly tweaked the library's ADA Page (click here to access it).  Now the name, phone number and email link of the ADA Librarian (um,me) can be found on top of that page (see above picture) so nobody has to scroll all the way down to the bottom. Especially if they're in a hurry.

I can also be emailed here as well. So if you need any kind of assistance or want to suggest or comment on anything here at the library that affects you or someone you know with a  disability, let me know.  (And yeah, we're working on texting.)  Thanks.

(Follow me on Twitter.  Yes, I know I've been slow updating it, but stuff happens...)

The awful storms that ravaged at least six states in the south have resulted in over 300 dead, thousands more injured or homeless and lots of property damage.  CNN has posted a list of organizations that are helping out the survivors down there.  If you'd like to contribute money, blood or time, find out how by clicking here to CNN's website

Also, the American Red Cross has more than 30 emergency response vehicles en route to provide food and to hand out cleanup and comfort kits.  You can text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation, give blood or volunteer.  More details here at their website. 


In honor of National Library Week (April 10-16), my colleagues and I have put together a short video on all the great stuff Greenwich Library offers.  Without further ado, here's the video (and special thanks to CT, JY, DS, DW & WG!):
