TumbleBooks (& more)

Experiencing increasingly peculiar dreams during dramatic times is completely normal. Last night we were called to do a librarian transfer (’cause that’s a real thing) with London, England (a natural coupling with Thorold, Ontario). Not sure if you know this, but their common area is just a field of uncut grass, so we finished the shift less jealous than expected.

Ran this through the old dream interpreter and apparently this means that we are afraid you don’t know that our TumbleBooks database also includes graphic novels, videos, language learning, puzzles & games. Well it does. Check it out under the E-Resources tab on our site. The Thorold one. Apparently we’ve transferred back.

Important Note Re: Notices

This morning we’ve been working on snags with email notifications and due date alterations. You should no longer receive due soon (or due, or overdue) notices. Yes, some did go out in error. Remember, you DO NOT owe fines on ANYTHING due during this time – whether you received a notice or not. Just ignore it. No need to contact us. We got ya. Yesterday we read an article about how to communicate with your library community during the closure and it showed a sample letter that read “Dear beloved patrons”. But we’re just going to keep things non-strange. If that’s cool with everyone.

Today’s #tbt photo is a children’s art exhibit from 1974, organized under the direction of Miss Gertrude Syrotuik. According to our archives, these works were on display in the Adult Department in November, then moved to the Children’s Department in December. Nothing in the record on whether anyone noticed it was just the same thing in a slightly different location. So that secret was safe for a good 40 years.

More shocking revelations to come.  Happy !

THOROLD PUBLIC LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL MONDAY, APRIL 6TH.  ALL PROGRAMS DURING THIS TIME ARE CANCELLED.  CHECK OUR WEBSITE AND/OR SOCIAL MEDIA FOR FURTHER UPDATES.
