New Library Databases

PLS has taken on two new databases that should definitely be explored!

ConsumerReports.org

The Consumer Reports database assists consumers in making better purchasing decisions on whatever they may be shopping for. Consumers can search and browse through information about cars, appliances, electronics, home & gardening supplies, products for babies & kids, shopping, health, and money. The database also provides ratings for the items that people are interested in. If you are thinking about making a purchase anytime soon, browse this database to get the most bang for your buck!

Fold3 History & Genealogy Archives

The Fold3 database offers a vast collection of original historical documents and personal histories from the past. These valuable documents can help people expand their knowledge of their own ancestry. With a travelling genealogy program going around PLS for Summer Reading 2013, this database could help you get started on exploring an interesting personal history.

Cards for Oklahoma

Students from Michelle McDaniel's class at Polo Road Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, heard about the multiple tornadoes that came through our state in May and sympathized with the Oklahomans affected.

To show their support, they wrote cards expressing their well wishes, safety tips, and positivity about the future. The photo to the left is just an example of one of the many thoughtful cards written by the Polo Road Elementary School children.

If you would like to view the full collection, check out the Flickr set called Cards for Oklahoma or you can also stop by the Moore Library and see them on display.

 

Ian Fleming Birth Anniversary

Ian Fleming's birth anniversary is May 28th. This English journalist and novelist created the James Bond series, beginning with Casino Royale in 1953.

He also penned the children's classic Chiddy Chiddy Bang Bang.

To celebrate Ian Fleming, stop by your hometown library and check out some of the following titles. Don't forget to look at materials on OverDrive as well! This is a great time to explore the inspiration for the numerous James Bond movies.

Casino Royale: A James Bond Novel by Ian Fleming

In the first James Bond novel, originally published in 1953, 007 takes on Le Chiffre, a French communist and paymaster of the Soviet murder organization SMERSH, as the suave agent becomes involved in a high-stakes game of baccarat, enjoys a fiery love affair with a sexy female spy, and endures torture at the hands of a master sadist.

5/21 A Message from PLS Director Anne Masters

We watched in terror as the tornado made its way along the path one mile south of the Southwest Oklahoma City Library and about a block south of the Moore Public Library where 54 people were sheltering from the storm.  We were so relieved when they were passed, but others were not so fortunate.
 
In addition, our friend and Board Member Steve Eddy is City Manager of the City of Moore and our hearts break for him and for his wife who is Director of the Red Cross as we think of all they are seeing and dealing with.
 
At this time I don’t know how we can help, but I will keep you informed as we learn more.  Late last night the power was out in Blanchard, SOKC and Moore libraries.  Those staff members should check with their supervisors as we determine plans for them and  their libraries.   All other libraries should be open and staff reporting normally.  I’m sure many customers will need our services.
 
If you have information about other Pioneer staff members affected by the tornado, please let me know.  We recognize that many of our customers were affected, also, and will want to know how we can help.
