Finally, your favorite author has published a new book, and you can’t wait to read it. It’s 9:30 PM though - how are you going to place a request? Or maybe you’re a student working on a paper late at night, and you just need a few more sources. Or perhaps you’re just interested in finding out more about an author, or researching local services for a project, but if the library is closed, where will you go for the information?
The truth is, many of the services you receive in person or over the phone from a librarian are available to you from home using a computer that’s connected to the internet. You can perform catalog searches, place requests, create book lists, or check due dates.
In addition to the electronic library catalog, many robust and powerful databases are at your disposal 24/7.

Come see how your library never closes by attending one of two upcoming tech talk sessions:

The dress designs are very Grace Kelley or Audrey Hepburn and pay a beautiful a tribute to a man ahead of his time. Even if you are not a graphic novel fan, this book is fun just to look through for the illustrations.
