New checkout limits for digital downloads!

As of this week, patrons are allowed to check out up to seven items from the digital books site (http://digitalcatalog.cwmars.org). The items may be any combination of audiobooks, Adobe Reader e-books, and downloadable videos; however, patrons are allowed to check out no more than two videos at a time. This new limit replaces the previous five item limit.

The only items that patrons may return early are the Adobe Reader e-books. Therefore, patrons placing items on their waiting list should not check out the maximum number of items. This is so that they are able to check out the waitlisted title when it becomes available.

If you haven't been to this site yet and you have a vacation coming up, check it out!

Summer Movies

Summer Movies start on July 11!

Are you a fan of fantasy? This summer the GPL will show the Lord of the Rings (LOTR to real fans) trilogy Friday nights starting on July 11. Are hobbits not really your thing? Do you prefer Harry Potter? Well, what a coincidence; we're showing the 5 Harry Potter movies Friday nights in August!

The library's back door opens at 6:45 and movies start promptly at 7:00. Escape the humidity and thunderstorms and visit another world for an evening.

Thanks to the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library for sponsoring this free event.

This fabulous site offers FREE pictorial tutorials (say that 10 times fast) so you can see what you need to do in the program. Check it out.

Closed for July 4!

Just a reminder that the library is closed for Independence Day! We will be open Saturday, July 5.
