Through the NOVEL databases the library makes
available newspapers from around the state. The number of
newspapers available continue to grow.
We have two BIG EYEs available for loan. These are high
intensity lights with a 5-inch magnifying glass attached. This light/magnifier can be
an excellent tool for anyone who needs help seeing those small projects, or tiny parts.
Stop in and ask the staff about checking one out on loan.
Anyone living in New York State can get a borrowers
card from the New York Public Library. This will allow you to borrow
books if you happen to be down in the City, but best of all you can access
the databases purchased by NYPL.
Just go to: http://www.nypl.org
This wonderful generosity by NYPL is due to their getting state funds
to help pay for the databases.
We publish a newsletter periodically to inform the public of new services, upcoming events,
and changes we are making in the library. Stop in for your copy or click onto the link on

associations and organizations, publications, and other tips on obtaining information
on the particular career. There is a list of the pamphlets attached to the end shelf
in the periodical section of the Adult Library.
