Get an Email, Save a Tree

Let's face it, times are tough for just about everyone right now, and the library system is no exception. While budget cutcomputer with mailbox flags can be somewhat painful, they also provide the opportunity to change for the better.
Starting in 2011, to save money and paper, the library system will no longer print and mail paper notices for requested holds, renewals, or overdue items. You will still receive an alert as long as the library has your correct email address or telephone number listed in your library account. If you have an email address on file, that is how you will receive your notices. If not, you will get a phone message. Either way, rest assured, you will still receive library messages and you will only be contacted about li

Time to Fall Back

clock on the word Fall

Ah, the end of Daylight Savings Time.  Well lit mornings, dark evenings.  For me this always marks the beginning of the holiday season.  I'm going to give it 72 hours before someone has holiday lights up on their house. 

Now, we officially change back to Standard Time on Sunday, November 7, at 2:00am, but I wouldn't rush to set the alarm clock or anything.  Just set your clocks back one hour Saturday evening, so everything is correct the next morning.  For example, if your clock says 10:00pm, you change it to 9:00pm.  Remember, many electronic devices may reset themselves, so check the time before changing it.

Enjoy your extra hour of sleep!
