Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

Here are just some of the things you can do with a library card:

1. Download, read or listen to over 2,500 ebooks and audiobooks for free.

2. Gain free admission for you and your family to a number of local museums and attractions.

3. Borrow books, DVDs, magazines, and audiobooks from over 28,000 items in our physical collections.

4. Borrow a board game for a fun night with friends or family.

5. Meet local authors, and attend readings and lectures.

6. Gain free online access to thousands of magazines and journals all from the comfort of your home.

So sign up today!

 

And if the above was not enough reason to get a library card, we'll give you another. All patrons who sign up for a library card in the month of September will be automatically entered into a raffle to win a free gift certificate to Desserts by Design, one of our lovely local bakeries.

 

So stop by today for your free card, and don't forget to bring proof of Audubon residency (a driver's license, or photo id in conjunction with official mail).


Speaker Preference Survey

We Want to Hear from You!

           

In our continuing effort to provide quality adult programing, we would like to invite a speaker from Rutgers University
to the Library.


But we need your help in determining the topics you’re most interested in.


So, the next time you are in the Library, please take a moment to fill out a Speaker Topic Preference Slip (located at the front desk), and we’ll do our best to arrange a talk for some time in early December. Details will be announced on our website, Facebook page, and posted in the Library.

Possible Topics:
Astronomy ● Homeland Security ● Memory/Memory & Aging

Recommendations will be accepted until September 30, 2017


Attention Parents & Guardians - Important Policy Change Coming to the Library on October 1st, 2017

***Important Policy Change***

Effective October 1st, 2017


Guarantor lending privileges will be affected by the fines on guarantee accounts

If you have signed the Library Card Application for any juvenile account, and thereby assumed responsibility for it, please note that fines accumulated on
the juvenile account may affect your adult lending privileges.

Specifically, if fines totaling more than $5.00 exist on any or all juvenile accounts for which you are responsible, your lending privileges will be suspended until the fines are brought below the $5.00 threshold.

Please note that the $5.00 threshold is cumulative of all juvenile accounts for which you are responsible. For example, if you have signed for two juvenile accounts, and each of these accounts has $2.50 in fines, a total of $5.00, your adult lending privileges will be suspended.


To avoid fines, please return or renew your material on or before the due date. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask Library staff.
