Booking Meeting Spaces

Posted by heather in Interesting Tidbits

As you may know, the library offers a lovely meeting space for private bookings called the Delany Room:

The Delany Room is available for non-commercial purposes simply by calling us to schedule a day, however, we are seeing so many bookings that we are now having to ask patrons to book the room at least three (3!) months in advance.

So what are some other options if you cannot schedule a day in Delany?

You can try:

  • The Youth Building or Pavilion at the Columbia County Fairgrounds (call Public Works at 382-2534)
  • The basement at Banner Bank (382-4714)
  • The Seneca Activity Center (382-8318)
  • The General Store (382-1042)
  • The conference room at Best Western (382-4790)
  • The conference room at the Port of Columbia (382-2577)

Please keep in mind these spaces may or may not be free, and are subject to the rules and policies of the managing entity.

Good luck!

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! :)

WA-List Library Card Gallery

Posted by heather in Interesting Tidbits

The WA-List website has done something very, very cool -- they've put together a mosaic map of the state of Washington using images of library cards from around the state.

http://www.wa-list.com/?p=418

"We contacted every public library in Washington and asked them to contribute a card (real or digital image) to our project.  The first card arrived within ten minutes... In the end we collected 99 cards from 49 different library systems... (FYI: There are 58 library systems in Washington that use cards and two that don’t.  Only nine libraries did not submit cards to the project.)"

And guess what? Our library card is on the map! :)
