Laptops for the Library!

Posted by heather in Library News

So you head into the library to check your email; it's a short errand and will only take you five minutes...

...But as you walk in the door you see that all the patron-use stations are full.

What do you do? It would just be a short email check, and the clerk at the counter tells you it would be ten minutes before the next computer is available...

We know wait lists for our patron Internet computers have been increasing. And at last, we have a solution!

The Library is proud to offer four Internet-access laptops for use by patrons! These new, Windows 8 machines are Internet-ready will check out for one hour to help offset those waitlist lag times.

Requirements are:

  • An account in good standing, defined as no fines, fees, or overdues on the account.
  • Patron must be over 18, and have a valid driver's license or state-issued ID.
  • Computers must be used within the library, and be returned to the Front Desk when the checkout period is up.
  • More in our Laptop Policy

Please inquire at the front desk!

Latest Addition...

Posted by heather in Library News

We admit we have been rather lax lately in getting the new book lists up.

However, we have found a way for you to still see what we're adding to the collection, when we're adding it!

You will now see on the main library page, a section in the lower right-hand corner titled "Latest Additions..." In it we have created a RSS feed of our new books -- which means that listing is updated at the same time as we update our catalog!

Also: everything that shows up in the "Latest Additions" box is a link that takes you directly to the catalog record for that item, so you can read more about it or place a hold if you like.

Questions? Let us know! :)

Columbia County Rural Library District received funds from Banner Bank and The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library to replace old and worn children’s books.  Many of the well-loved books, classics, and favorite authors, like Dr. Seuss, are in need of being replaced.  The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library submitted a grant to Banner Bank to help CCRLD purchase replacement titles of worn books.  Banner Bank generously awarded the Friends with $200.  In addition the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library agreed to donate an additional $500 to CCRLD.   CCRLD will be able to purchase about 60 new library-bound replacement books with the funds of $700.
