Moore Library is so happy to offer a larger quantity of new items arriving daily: new books, large print books, dvd's, audio books, just to name a few categories. Due to an increased budget this year, an emphasis will be on increasing the library's collection on every level. More "sizzlers" are available for checkout and the library is extending the checkout time for sizzler books to three weeks per item. This new policy will give more customers a chance to checkout the latest, hot-off-the-press items. During the months of January and February, weather pemitting, the library's "roof" construction will be entering its final phases. Again, we want to thank you, our customers, for patience and understanding during this time.
New programs on the horizon include the Second Annual Gospel Brunch, slated for the end of February in celebration of Black History Month. The Adult Services Department will participate in another Big Read Event, featuring this year's classic book selection of To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Also, Moore Library is proud to be part of the MetLife Grant program, Fit for Life, in which several programs, events, and speakers will focus on the importance of mental health: keeping the brain active and healthy. The Children's Department will conclude Melody Hounds music classes and continue to offer StoryTimes, Movers and Shakers, and Make 'n' Takes. For teens, Game On, highlighted by Guitar Hero II, Wii, and video games, takes front stage.
During this time when the national economic conditions are in a crunch, the Moore Library is proud to be seen as a viable resource for the community, offering: free computer access, free wi-fi service, the latest movie dvd's for checkout, a family facility open with extended hours of service, confortable reading and research areas. We hope your visit to the Moore Library is an enjoyable one, and we look forward to seeing you here.
