Library News

3/9/18        Books that are on the return shelf need to remain there until the desk clerk has checked them back in.  If you see a book want there, just fill out a reserve for it, and we’ll tell you when it’s available.     

We are receiving donations of good quality paperbacks that should be of general interest.  Although we have shelves for paperbacks already, for the next few weeks, we will place some of the recently donated paperbacks on the “Staff Recommendations” shelf next to the New Books section.  These paperbacks are not catalogued so you can just borrow them and return them to the “Return Books” shelf when you’ve read them .  

2/10/18    We have several new residents and the Library Committee welcomes everyone to our library. We put out eight new books per month.  These  books on the New Book Shelf can be checked out for no more than three  weeks to give others a chance to read them, too.  Each week the desk is covered by a library volunteer whose nameplate will be on the desk in the library.  If you have a question please contact that week’s desk person, or Mary Jones or me, this year’s Library Committee co-chairs.  Any of us would be happy to give you a short walk through  our collection and check out procedures.  These procedures are listed on the top of the bookshelf facing the  checkout desk. We try to order books that are of current interest.  You are welcome to suggest books to order.  We also consider donations.  If you have a relatively current book you’d like to donate please call to see if we would like it in our library.  Please do not just leave a group of books for us to consider on the library desk!   Our shelf space is limited.          Mary Jones(ext. 149) and Pat Clarke (ext. 297), 2018 Library Co-Chairs

Guidelines for use

Check Out Proceedures.  We have noticed several books are missing from our shelves and haven’t been checked out—just taken.  If you are using our library for the first time, PLEASE read the instructions easily visible on the New Book Shelf.  Do not take home a book from the shelf without filling out the check-out card and  placing it in the box on the library desk.

Need an Orientation?  Contact the person whose name is on the placard on the library desk, (each week we have an “on duty” Library Committee member), or contact Mary Jones (ext.149) or Pat (ext.297) the Library Committee Co-chairs.

Possible Book Donations.  We seldom accept hard-cover donated books.  We only consider recently published, well-reviewed selections.  Contact Pat (#297) or Mary (#149) if you have a book or two in that category for our consideration.  If you have a paperback (which won’t need to be cataloged, so is easier to accept) you may leave it on the desk and Celia (223) will determine whether we can use it.  

Please don’t leave books on the library desk unless you’ve called us first.

Recently acquired books

Thank you to River House Books

River House Books, where we purchase the new books for the Regular Print Library, is now offering the Library a 10% discount on our book purchases.  This will be very important to the Library, as book prices continue to rise.  River House Books, located in the Crossroads, Carmel, is an excellent bookstore; they give good service and have a fine collection of books in stock.  Residents are urged to explore River House Books for their personal book needs.

Video library

SPECIAL NOTE:  The Master List in the Video Library is being updated.  A number of films are missing. Please check your shelves to help find these and  get them back in circulation for all to enjoy.  It is VERY Important to check out all films on the sheet provided in the video library in the Canterbury Room.

All residents are encouragd to review the free Video Library behind the white sliding doors in the Canterbury Room.  There is a large variety of DVDs, including a section with videos for Children and the Young at Heart; also, Christmas videos.  Please check these out on the clipboard provided.  Cross off your name when returned, and place film in the Return Box.

VHS Tapes of general interest may be found in the first long brown cabinet on the shelves below the drawers.  No checkout is needed for VHS tapes.  Place in Return Box when finished viewing.

Master Video List

This list may be found next to the Video Library Return Box along with the latest movie addition slips.  The Master List is also available for viewing here.

You can also view recent additions to the video library here.  This list is updated frequently.

Donations

Video donations are appreciated (original copyrighted movies) and may be placed in the Video Library Return Box.  Due to limited space, librarians do make the judgment calls as to what materials are accepted for the library.  Let the librarians know if movies not accepted should be returned to the donor.

Questions - Call Isabel Gray on ext. 181 or Grace Beigle on ext. 139.

Great Courses

A number of Great Courses DVDs, owned by residents, are available for loan to other residents.  For more information about these courses, or to negotiate a loan, consult the resident owner personally.  (Please note that this lending program is between residents and is not associated with the Library.)
