The Greenwich Library is open for regular hours today - 9 AM to 9 PM.  Our branches will keep regular hours as well, with Byram Shubert open 9AM to 5PM and our Cos Cob branch 12PM to 8 PM.   Please see the Town of Greenwich website for local information regarding the aftermath of Hurricane Irene http://www.greenwichct.org/Home/default.asp and the State of Connecticut website for additional information ct.gov/irene 

Greenwich Library will be closed on Sunday, August 28 because of the impending hurricane that is expected to impact the area.

All fines and fees will be waived for the day.

Elimination of Print Overdue Notices

| No Comments
On September 1, 2011, Greenwich Library will cease mailing circulation notices for overdue items. Posters, flyers and bookmarks advising patrons of the change have been placed throughout all three library locations. Currently, patrons with email addresses receive Courtesy Notices, Holds Notices as well as Overdue Notices by Email. We will continue to send out all of these notices. Circ Notices-Poster  Flyer.jpg Patrons without email addresses may ask the circulation desk staff for assistance with their library account. Information Desk staff will also assist patrons with viewing their records, and renewing or reserving items. Additionally, for patrons who would like to set up an email address, the Technology Training Center offers Drop-in Labs every Thursday at 3:00PM. There is also an Email Basics class that is offered regularly. Patrons with new email accounts may refer to Manage Your Account bookmarks for instructions on viewing or updating their records online. Instructions for viewing accounts online are also available on our Website.

Where's Netlibrary?

| No Comments

Due to circumstances beyond our control, NetLibrary is no longer functioning as an eAudiobook and eBook provider. If you're looking for the link on our downloadable Library page, you won't find it. In the near future, Greenwich Library will be adding two new downloadable services to take it's place.

Many of the titles that were in our Netlibrary collection will soon be available via a downloadable eBook and eAudiobook platform from EBSCO. We are in the process of testing the service for functionality. The service is designed to support research and contains scholarly materials. Once we are confident with how it operates, we will make the service available to our patrons.

A new downloadable eAudiobook service called OneClick Digital from Recorded books will also soon be available. This will feature a wide variety of popular fiction and non-fiction titles. We hope to have both of these services up and running shortly.

Please note that neither of these changes affect our Overdrive eBook and eAudiobook collections
