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.

Adult Programming

Survey-Small1The staff at East Morgan County Library would like to start offering regularly scheduled adult programs.  As we start planning for this change we would like patron input regarding best day of the week, best time of day and program ideas.  Please let us know of any programs or events you would like to see @ your library.  There is a survey to complete, either on our website , by clicking the survey icon, or at the front desk of the library.  We look forward to seeing your ideas.

Change is a good thing

 You know how you get cabin fever and just have to move things around?  Well, if you have been to East Morgan County Library lately, you will see that we have moved things around.   Starting in February of this year we began putting “tags” in all of our items in preparation for our self-checkout machine.   We ordered shelving in anticipation of moving the young adult section and the juvenile section around to make more room for the books, audio books, movies and games.

Finally, we have completed our job of tagging, our shelving has arrived and our self-checkout machine is installed (we did have some issues with the shelving and the shipping care, so it isn’t completely done yet).  So, things have changed and I wanted to tell you about them.  First, the young adult items are in the same general location.  The book bins have been placed in a “u” shape with the board books with the LEGOS inside the “u”.  The roost and puppets have been moved back toward the windows and the level reader books and puzzles are back by the window as well.  Juvenile non-fiction is now on the back wall in the juvenile section and the juvenile series are on the spinning shelves.  (They might not stay there.)  All new items, except for movies and games, are at the beginning of their location.  Science fiction has moved to the other side of the library and genealogy, Colorado collection and reference have moved to the beginning of the adult non-fiction area.  If you need any help, we are always happy to help you find what you are looking for.

The self-checkout machine is now here as well.  All you need is your library card and your 4 digit pin number.  Don’t know your 4 digit pin number?  Well no fear, we librarians are here.  We can set that up easily for you.  If you still like the old way of checking out, we are more than happy to check out your items for you.
Stop by and have checking out the new changes.
