Would you like a library card that works everywhere in the state?

   Wednesday, February 27th, 2013 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Massachusetts Board of Library CommissionersThe Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners is researching whether or not a state-wide library card (a single card that would work in every library in the state) would be of interested to residents of Massachusetts.

In order to gauge interest, and expectations, of a state-wide library card, the MBLC is asking that everyone please fill out a short survey and let them know what you think:

Survey Link: http://mblc.state.ma.us/cardsurvey
Due By: Friday, March 1st

The idea of a state-wide library card grew out of the MBLC's Resource Sharing Committee, which is trying to identify ways to improve library services and better allocate budget funds to best benefit Massachusetts library patrons. Your input will definitely help in their efforts. Thanks!

Check Out The Online Newsstand

   Saturday, February 25th, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

The library is now offering easy access to the latest articles in popular magazines!

For years patrons have had access to these same magazines, but they've been sort of buried in our subscription databases. Now, there's an "Online Newsstand" that displays magazine covers that lets you click right into that magazine.

Online Newsstand
Click a magazine cover to read the latest featured articles & more.

This is available both on our main website and also on our mobile website - that way, you can have easy access to read magazines while you're on the go. New articles are added as the magazine is published, and you can also scroll to see past issues. There will also be more magazines added soon, too!

If you have any questions about accessing these magazines or any of our databases, please contact the Reference Desk.
