Inspiring ideas, enriching lives, and
Summer may be over but not the fun and excitement at the library! Here's what's new:
New Research and Learning Databases:
Find helpful library resources and links to vetted outside sources to learn a new skill, complete a research project and get the help you need. The databases are simple to use and provide information from reference books, magazines, relevant images, and videos. Some of our new research tools include health, legal matters, science and technology, DIY Auto Repair, and reference materials for elementary, middle school and high school students. The databases are listed on the catalog under
" and on the website under
"research and learning". If you are using them from home, all you need is your library card number to access them. In the library they will all automatically be logged in. The online references are available for use 24/7.
$3000 Grant for Audiobooks!
We received a grant from the State Library to purchase audiobooks. I'm in the process of ordering the new materials and if you have a specific request, please let us know.
We now have a kid's catalog interface available! From the main catalog webpage, you can click on the kids catalog icon (located at the bottom). This will open a new page with the kids catalog interface. The kids catalog allows people to search using simple subject icons (i.e. "friendship" or "dogs"). Any Juvenile books or media will automatically be searchable using this interface.
September is National
Get a Library Card Month. I have scheduled meetings with the local schools to help students get signed up for library cards and to help them understand the many resources available to them through the library including the new research databases.
We have signed many families up for library cards and will soon reach 1000 members! We also helped them become aware of the programs available through the library at the Family Fun Fest events.
The Friends of the Loomis Library will have a booth at the
Eggplant Festival in October, to continue our outreach. They will be selling books to support new materials and programs. We hope to see you there!
Programing for Loomis Elementary short days and Holidays:
- We are scheduling activities for kids after school on 1/2 days and on those no school days that fall on a Friday. Please check out the library
often to find out what's new.
Our members are pleased with the availability of new books on the shelves. We are adding to the collection weekly and have a healthy list of best sellers in all genres and for all ages.
