New and Improved!

As bookstores are having to constantly change their formats to keep up with the changing needs of customers, libraries have to do the same. Long gone are the dusty card catalogs, replaced by shiny new tablets with searchable catalogs.

And what about cramped, outdated computers to do your work or log onto social media? Sleek desks with tiny computer footprints make it easier for patrons to get their work–or surfing–done. That even includes a height-adjustable desk for patrons who might be in a wheelchair.

And for older patrons, the task of looking for large print books can be unappealing. But large print covers are now bright and fun, and facing them out bookstore style, should help make selections easier. Maybe patrons will even find some new favourite authors!

If you’re seeing changes at our library, while they might cause a bit of confusion, they’re also exciting and forward-thinking. Take a few minutes to see what’s new at our library!
