To the Editor:
The Mooers Free Library is looking forward to a move in the not too distant future to a new facility complete with a Community Room for anyone interested in holding a meeting or a class for the general public. Although plans are still incomplete pending the approval of the location site, the excitement of improving the library facility is growing.
It is no secret that libraries are changing their focus to keep their doors open. Many libraries have increased their offerings beyond the traditional shelves of books. Mooers Library is proud to be able to promote a large book collection and also many other services to patrons. The library has a large collection of movies and music; large print books along with books on tape and CDs. The building offers WIFI for research on your computer or computer access in a comfortable environment. Many services are available through the CEF Library System. The popular method of ordering books from libraries for delivery via van makes it possible to read your favorite new book or view a video at home. Then return your book or video to your hometown library and the rest is done for the patron.
Along with many programs for children, the library offers e-books for patrons to download. Soon many of the magazines will be available as e-editions. It is important for the future to keep up with all new developments and services available for all. Stop by your library and get acquainted with all the new services for everyone. Talk with your librarian about the services and ask about tax forms that can be downloaded and research for jobs or help with resumes. Libraries are evolving with the times — stop by and be part of this exciting time at your local free public library. Don’t forget to use the WII and make use of the movies that can be shown to all.
