Yachats Public Library
By Janet Rackleff
The library's card catalog is now online! You can search for books in our collection, see if a book is available or checked out, and even reserve a book by email. Just go to the library website at www.ci.yachats.or.us click on the Library tab and below the pictures of the library you'll find the catalog link. Or bookmark it directly at http://catalog.ourlibraryonline.com/start.php?a=YACHATS
Reserves will be processed three times a week and you'll receive a call when your reserved material is ready for pick-up at the library.
We have been purchasing more Oregon authors' works through the Trust Management Grant. Some new titles and authors you might be interested in reading include Brian Doyle: Martin Marten, mysteries by Richard Riegel: Bad Woman, Good Woman or Ann Simas: Dressed to Die and many non-fiction titles. The Oregon author books have a green dot on the spine and are on the middle shelf of our new non-fiction reads.
There is a new shelf in the children's room too with Spanish and Bilingual books. Look for it next to the tiger on the wall!
And from Marion Godfrey, library volunteer and commissioner: Yachats Library would like some help from our patrons. The library may be able to access digital material through Library2Go. This is a service where patrons may download eBooks and audiobooks to their computer or mobile devices (iPad, kindle etc.) using their library card.
Alas, this is not a free service, so we will be surveying our patrons with a simple yes/no question about usage of such a service. We need to know if there is sufficient interest in digital library availability at Yachats Library before the subject is pursued further. So when you visit the library over the next few months we will be asking your opinion on the idea.
If you are interested in more information about the system, check out their website at Library2Go.lib.overdrive.com where you can browse the site without having to sign in. Of course, you will be able to ask our library volunteers too.
Happy Thanksgiving to all, and remember we have cookbooks too!
