IN THE KNOW

Library AccessIt’s amazing how patrons love the books and resources we have here at Northwest Branch. Just the other day a customer spoke with me at the Reference Desk. I was helping her locate some information she needed. In the process of this she shared how much she learned about business using our books and doing research on our computers. She mentioned, "I’ve come here every day and spent hours sitting at the table searching the different books on how to start a business, different types of businesses, getting capital and grants. From the information I’ve gained, I am more confident in what I am doing and how to proceed to have the business I want." The library is truly the place to get "in the know".

"4" is the Magic Number for New Books

Every month new books are caringly put on display by Ms. Gwendolyn, one of our great NW librarians!  Each book has a sticker with a number telling us what month it arrived.  Since it is April, that means that the newest books will have a number "4" on the spine!  Check out the new book display this month and find something new to read!
