Gift A BooK for Christmas!

Gift A Book for Christmas

This is a new event that I would like to do for our partrons this year.  It is FREE and anyone is welcome!! The idea is to take new books we have in the library that are not on the shelf and give them as a gift to someone we love.  One book for everyone, and gift wrapping materials wil be provided by us.  You can come in, pick out a book, wrap it, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and some Christmas cheer and then take the gift with you to give to someone yuo love. I am super excited about this opportunity for the patrons,!!! Again this is for everyone, ALL AGES!!!! Please come in !

Hope to see you all here!

If you can not make it on this day, during this time, you may still come in during open hours after the event to pick out a book  and wrap it for a loved one.

I will have a sign in sheet for those who participate.  You do not have to put down who the gift is for.

Please help with the 2nd floor renovation of Bodman Memorial Library!  In 2014 we are applying for another New York State Construction Grant to renovate the 2nd floor of the library.  Renovations include new electrical wiring, installing electric baseboard heat, insulation for external walls, new sheetrock and flooring throughout.  Upon completion there will be an adult reading room, community center, and a private room for meetings/tutoring.  The burden of a 25-50% match falls upon the library and we need your support.  There is no amount to small!   We are accepting donations online through paypal for your convenience.  Please include your name and phone number with your donation for a chance to win a home made quilt by Lynn Waite.  Drawing for the quilt will be on February 1st.

Good News for patrons!

Do you often ask yourself "Have I read this before?"  or maybe even asked library staff "Can you see if I've checked this out before?" 

Great news!  Patrons now have the option to see a list of items they have checked out in the past.  When you log in to Enterprise (the online catalog) you can then opt to have the system keep track of the books that you check out.  This request has been a long time coming for those avid readers who cannot always remember if they've read every title to a series or get hooked on particular authors that have published over 10, 20, or 30 titles and you loose track of which ones you have read. All you have to do is log in with your library card number and PIN- last 4 digits of your phone number, click on my account

Under the Personal Information tab click on preferences and place a check in the box next to Keep my checkout history and click update.

Updates to our Computer and Wireless Policy

Currently we are in the processing of updating and reviewing our Computer Use and Wireless Policy.  One major change is  children under the age of 12 are not allowed to use the computer without the supervision of an adult (over the age of 18) who is validated to use the computer.  This goes in hand with our patron behavior policy which states:

¨      Children under 12 years of age are not to be left unattended in the building or on Library property. Parents or legal guardians are responsible for behavior of minor children. (Under 12)
