Posted by amy in Announcements

Some of our most loved children's books are looking a little rough around the edges. Many need to be replaced. The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library have generously agreed to contribute $500 to help offset the cost of replacing them. The Friends have asked Banner Bank to contribute to the project and they have awarded $200 to help replace some of our well-loved and worn children's books. 

The Columbia County Rural Library District would like to thank Banner Bank and the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library for their generous contributions!

Fiber Coming Soon!

Posted by heather in Announcements

Fiber to the library is coming soon!  The Library Board of Trustees, director and staff’s desired outcome of providing a faster more efficient Internet connection to the library’s computers is almost realized.  NoaNet is nearer to their completion date.  Bringing the library’s existing network up-to-date required an upgrade for gigabit speeds to the library’s computers, which was completed in July.  The library’s broadband fiber connectivity will soon be at 10 Mbps up and down, an increase from its current Cable network speed of 1.5 Mbps down and 768 Kbps up.  The faster bandwidth will help the library’s patrons and the library’s wireless customers search for jobs, do homework and research, run their home business from the library’s computers, play games, use FaceBook, Twitter, watch YouTube, use the library’s databases, download eBooks and eAudiobooks.  The library will have the fastest free Internet connection in town.

The Columbia County Rural Library District is participating in the ARRA/BTOP Round One/Two awarded grants utilizing NoaNet fiber.  Fiber has been installed at the library building.  Connectivity to the fiber is still a couple months away.

The 2012 Broadband Grant in the amount of $958 was awarded to the Columbia County Rural Library District and is being supported with Library Services and Technology Act funding provided by the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State.

Rural libraries to circulate eBook readers, thanks to grant!

Posted by heather in Announcements

Thanks to a recent grant award, library users in many southeastern Washington communities soon will be able to bring home books on a lightweight eBook reader.

The grant is named “eREADS in eWA”: Encourage Reading, Expanding Access and Device Sharing in Eastern Washington.

The Asotin County Library, Columbia County Rural Library District, Denny Ashby Library (Pomeroy), Neill Public Library (Pullman), Walla Walla Rural Library District and Whitman County Library are partnering to purchase NOOK eReaders, which will be preloaded with the popular content and then made available in those communities beginning October 15th. 

Two shared Nooks will be at each library at any one time and will be rotated every two months.  eReaders will be loaded with titles specific to the genres of biography, Christian fiction, classics, fantasy, general or literay fiction, historical fiction, readable non-fiction, mystery, science fiction, thrillers and horror, and young adult fiction.  There are twelve Nooks between the six libraries.

One of the reasons the partners are offering eReaders to the public is to familiarize patrons with a new electronic format of library material.  In addition, it offers patrons the opportunity to discover and understand how an eReader can be used as an individual device for personal use.  Staff-chosen material will be downloaded on the devices so patrons can fully experience the eReader.  Patrons 18 and over will sign a user borrowing agreement before checking out an eReader.  Patrons under 18 will need to co-sign with their parent or guardian.

The six libraries were awarded grants through Connecting Libraries through Resource Sharing, a federal program that encourages cooperation among public libraries in counties where interlocal agreements to share materials do not exist. 

“The grant’s purpose is to encourage rural libraries to make better use of taxpayers’ dollars by rotating and sharing their materials with each other,” said Carolyn Petersen, the State Library’s assistant program manager for library development. “That benefits the libraries involved and their patrons. This latest grant lets patrons realize that their libraries, while rural, are still technologically up to date.”   

The Nook Simple Touch is a LSTA grant-funded device courtesy of the Washington State Library and Institute of Museum and Library Services.
