Coupons

Coupon pictureThe idea of coupons started in 1887 when the Coca-Cola Company decided to try different advertising techniques.  Asa Chandler, a partner, encouraged employees and sales representatives to give out coupons for free drinks.  The coupons were also mailed to costumers and placed in magazines.  Coupon use became more widespread in 1909 when C.W. Post distributed coupons to help sell breakfast cereals and other products.  In September 1997, the U.S.  celebrated the first National Coupon Month.

Today customers can get coupons from various sources, including newspapers, the internet, web sites.  Mobile phone coupons are becoming more widely popular, especially since 2010 when Target became the first national chain to put out mobile coupons.  But maybe some have missed one of the sources of coupons—East Morgan County Library.

At East Morgan County Library we subscribe to an assortment of newspapers and magazines.  In the newspapers and magazines is usually a generous supply of coupons.  Instead of throwing them away, we pull them out and put them by the front desk.  Anyone can come in and take any of the coupons.  You don’t have to wait for National Library Month in September, feel free to come check out our coupons anytime we are open.

Still Moving Around

002We have done some more moving around in the library. (I know, I know, enough already) We are getting to the end of our rearranging. Yeah! The Young Adult section is very similar, except for a change that I am excited about. We have put the audio books next to the book on the shelf. For example the audio version of 39 clues Beyond the Grave is next to the book on the shelf. So, whether you are looking for the book or the audio they are together.

The juvenile section has changed slightly as well. The Juvenile non-fiction begins on the shelves under the windows and continues along the back wall. The Juvenile series are located on the new shelves in the Juvenile section. The audio books are located next to the books in that section as well. (Cool, huh?)

As always, if you need help, we are willing to help you find those items you need or want.

 

Christmas time is coming

I can’t ChristmasOpenHouse2012_PPCLTHEJbelieve how quickly the month of November went by.  I hope everyone had a great holiday with family and friends.  I know I did.

As the month of December quickly descends upon us, I wanted to let you know about our Open House on Thursday, December 11th from 1:00-7:00 pm.  We want to show how much we appreciate our patrons by having cookies, drinks and fellowship in the Activity Room.  There are town activities that day as well and Santa and the Christmas tree lighting will be held at the library around 6:45 pm.  If you want to know more details about the activities in Brush that day, you can check out the Brush Chamber of Commerce  website at www.brushchamber.org

Have a safe holiday season.
