Another Year and More Changes

As I posted last year, Virginia Morgan, Assistant Director, applied for a Rasmuson Foundation Grant to replace the falling down railroad ties that provided a retaining wall as well as getting funding to bring us into the 21st Century by putting our catalog on-line, bar coding our media, and replacing the existing paper library cards with up-to-date plastic cards with our logo. So far, Jon James Construction and KF Construction have replaced the retaining wall with landscape blocks and the look is beautiful. Be sure to check out the photos of the new wall on the photos page. We have contracted with a company called Biblionix that provides the on-line catalog services to smaller, rural libraries. Virginia has been steady scanning books and bar coding them throughout the summer and fall. We have asked various artists to submit designs for a logo and hope to have that design selected very soon. Next to order those new library cards with the logo on them

Library Fundraiser

It's that time of year again and we're selling tickets to the 18th Annual Library Fundraiser. Last year's event was very successful, the food was great, and the company delightful. We're going to hold the fundraiser at the Sunrise Inn again on November 4, 2017 from 6 PM. Tickets are still $110 and admit two people for an evening of food and fun. Tickets are available at the library or from any of the many volunteers who donate their share of 1,092 hours a year to keeping our library alive, alert, and very enthusiastic. Ticket sales will end on November 3. The fundraiser is our way of giving to the community a fun-filled evening and the community's way of helping us secure the required $7,000 in matching funds to the State Library grant that helps keep us afloat.

Driving Tests

Cooper Landing Community Library is announcing a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free DMV practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests, written specifically based on the state DMV materials, and is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that allow users to hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask sections of the screen for greater visibility on driving practice tests.
