Archive for the “News & Events” Category

We’ve been working on redesigning our website. We hope it will be easier for you to find what you’re looking for.  We’ve moved a few things around, provided quick links to social media and added some sections that represent what you’ve said you use the library internet computers to do.

In the menu bar, you’ll find About the Library which gives you more information about supporting the library and what, how, and why we do the things we do here.  Departments lists the various library departments.  Directions provides directions to the library while News & Weather lists links to local forecasts and news sources.  There are a couple of different ways for you to find the CCFLS eStacks, our ebooks from Overdrive.  Either follow the link in the menu or under Ebooks or click on the icon just below the menu bar on the upper left of the page.  New Items gives you a direct link to lists of items added to our collection each month.  You can find other county libraries under CCFLS Libraries.  Lastly, we have the Ebooks menu item that lists links to different sources we have available for library patrons to access ebooks.

New Website Design

 

Further down the page you’ll find our usual news and reminders, links to our electronic resources, and a way to log into your library account or search the catalog.  Under the I’m interested in: section are a number of pages that direct you to more information on various subjects.  Look around.  If you can’t something, you can use the search function in the menu bar (click on the magnifying glass).  If you need to ask us a question, scroll down to the bottom of the page and fill out the form.  There you’ll also find the calendar, our hours and our contact information.
