New services

Recently Hartshorne Library has implemeted "PC Reservation". This is a computer managment system. It requires the patron to log in using their library card. It also has built in time limits that frees the staff for more important tasks. We have had it for about a month and besides the first week we are very pleased with the response from the public. We encourage any comments.
We also have a new scanner, printer and fax combination machine. The staff is extremely pleased with this despite a few gliches in the fax capabilities.
The Library System is looking into providing downloadable audio books. This will allow you to "borrow" an audio to download onto an ipod or any other Mp3 device. We are now in the process of selecting the titles to offer. We hope for a very positive response to this. Again, we encourage any comments.
