Yachats Public Library
By Janet Rackleff
October at the Library
New at the library is an adult reader section showcasing local Northwest authors -- both fiction and non-fiction. These books are located on the shelf below the new non-fiction books in the front room. Recommendations for Oregon/NW authors are welcome.
In the children's back room we have started a shelf of Spanish and Bilingual books for our youngest kids, mostly in paperback. As the year progresses we will be adding hardcover and non-fiction books for a wider age range of children.
Last month's mystery recommendations were brought to you my Maggie Marshall, her name was left off of the article.
Finally Happy Halloween to all, come in and find a spooky read!
The Yachats Library has joined other libraries around the state in a new program called the Oregon Library Passport Program. This program will allow Yachats library cardholders to have access, without charge, to other participating libraries across the state. Newport, Waldport and Florence are part of this program. Materials borrowed from participating libraries must be returned to that library. Learn more at www.librariesoforegon.org/passport or stop by the library for more information.
We are pleased to announce we again have 4 functioning patron computers! The two new ones are running Window 8. We know many of you will be happy to hear that all computers have WORD installed. The new printer/copier also has scanning capabilities, another function patrons have been requesting. The touch screens on the Windows 8 computers are fun to use. Come give it a try! We will be glad to help you if you are new to touch screens.
The Yachats Public Library was established by Ordinance 36 in November 1973 stating "The City of Yachats does hereby establish a public library to be known as the 'Yachats Public Library' to be operated and funded by the said city and to be used for the educational and cultural benefit by the citizens of the said city in accordance with the rules and regulations of the said library."
