If you regularly visit or just occasionally stop in at the Carlyle Library, you will be seeing changes. The library is going to have a renovation coming this spring, which will see a new layout, a reconfiguration of technology and new flooring.
A library is important to a community and is a goal-orientated service, which requires ongoing planning and programs to keep it successful.
The renovations with the renewed floor plan will make it easier for patrons to find books and items and streamline all services it provides.
The goal this year, which is vital to providinga quality experience for those using the library, is to reach 6,000 checkouts of items available at the library. These items include books, DVD’s, E-books, audios, kits and video games.
The importance of this goal is the library functions under a process that determines its resources by how many items are borrowed. If an item does not get loaned out over a period of time then it is removed from the libraries collection.
If you are at the library checking out a certain topic, take the time to see what else is of interest to you and borrow whatever you would like more information on.
Library cards are free, as well there is no charge to borrow, the more items you borrow the more resource materials the library is provided. This practice if adopted by those using the service will help out immensely. Again the more items accessed the more items the library is allotted. This practice will keep resources in the collection as well as provide more services.
The library is a key service to any community, those that do not have Internet at home, are able to stay connected and informed. Reaching this goal keeps books on the shelves.
The library welcomes donations of new books and can accept up to 100 each year, which will be added to the shelves.
If you are home and making use of the internet to pass time, surfing cyber space, collecting information you find of interest, taking a trip to the library can also keep you occupied and can fill up your day with worthwhile research. As well, you may come across other information or topics you may find of interest and not only will you enlighten yourself, you will help your local library branch grow its collection.
The library has numerous programs it provides weekly as well as special events on the schedule it hosts each month. You can check online for times and programs or stop in during regular hours.
The library needs progression and by making a trip there, you will be participating in making your community stronger and more attractive to growth.
