National Library Lovers' Month

February is Library Lovers' Month. Libraries offer something for everyone and we know you will love Bonus Borrows from hoopla! Get titles instantly without affecting your monthly limit. Plus you can still access hoopla's collection of over 950,000 ebooks, audiobooks, movies, and TV shows.


Your library provides free access to Tutor.com, which supports students learning from home! Just login with your library card number or Student PLAY Account to find free tutoring for homework, feedback on a paper, or practice tests to get ready for the SAT, APs, and other exams.

PINES Upgrades

You may have noticed that the PINES catalog is more user-friendly after last month's upgrades. Features now have greater accessibility on a variety of devices. And don't forget you can get the PINES App through Google Play or Apple Store!

Connecting Communities

The Library recently provided a virtual orientation for Memorial Health Pediatric Residents. One resident noted, "Public libraries are doing so much, particularly during this pandemic... as they provide a hub for information and resources for families.”
