The online catalog the library uses for ebooks and downloadable audiobooks, called Overdrive, updated its website with a new look this weekend. If you haven't already, please check it out at http://mvlc.lib.overdrive.com.
There is an online guide that introduces all the new features, and new printed guidelines will be ready soon. A few important changes to note are:
The new look only applies to the website - people using the mobile app will not notice any change. If you use Internet Explorer 7 you will need to download the Google Chrome plug-in to display the page correctly, as that version of the browser does not support all the features of the new layout. Alternatively you could update to the latest version of the browser.
If anyone has any questions please contact the Reference Desk.

The 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:
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!

The program from last year that funded one-on-one computer instruction at the library has been extended, and we're happy to offer this service again! Sessions start on February 19th and will run for about nine months.
Sessions are being scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday mornings (10am and 11am) and evenings (6pm and 7pm) - contact the Reference Desk at 978-256-5521 x211 to schedule an appointment. Any technology topic is fair game - using a computer, downloading ebooks, getting an email account, learning software like Excel, installing software, or even just a quick refresher.
These instructional sessions are made possible through the BTOP program at UMass-Lowell, focused on improving digital literacy.
For more information, contact the Reference Desk at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.
