Fayette library has new web address 7.28.10

Written by David Green.

Fayette’s Normal Memorial Library has a new website address (http://www.fayette-nml.org ) along with an updated look.

The library’s electronic catalogue is located on the left side of the page, near the top. A book search shows which libraries around the state own the book. A large green check mark after the title shows the book is owned by Normal Memorial, but titles can be borrowed from other libraries and ordering can be accomplished from a patron’s home computer.

The website currently lists a selection of new novels. Click on the New Books link  at the top and you’re taken to a list of Normal Memorial’s recent acquisitions. Most of them have a link that offers short reviews and on-line ordering from other libraries. If the volume is owned by Fayette, patrons can request that it be placed on hold.

Under the Services link, patrons will find a list of the current DVDs available for loan. A new batch of 40 movies arrives three times a year.

Research links, located along the left side of the web page, includes links for a variety of information, from tree identification to Learning Express Library—a compendium of practice tests for a variety of skills and situations.

Other services include the NoveList reading advisory service, the Know It Now connection to a librarian and the Ohio Web Library for research.

    THE MAYOR—Cecil Schoonover poses with a collection of garden gnomes that mysteriously arrive and disappear from his property. Along with the gnomes, someone created the sign stating that he is the Mayor of Gnomesville. He hasn’t yet tracked down the people involved in the prank, but he’s having a good time with the mystery.
