Weekly Newsletter ~ July 18, 2012

Heyworth Public Library would like to welcome a new and upcoming artist, Emily Jones of Heyworth, IL. She will be a junior at Heyworth High School. She has brought in four pieces of her artwork, all in different mediums, as she has many talents. Please stop by and view her exhibit in our front entry display case.

  We welcome and seek out local artists and hobbyist to display their works in the library. If you know of someone with such talent please let us know of them and their contact information.

Summer reading programs continue through August for children, teens and adults.  Reading for prizes will come to an end in July.  Children age 3 – 6th grade can still read 10 books for prizes.  All children’s book logs must be turned in before or on July 28.  All new prizes are available for July for our Teens and Adults! 

In last week’s edition of the Buzz we explained what the RSA Cat is on our webpage: heyworthlibrary.com.  This online “card” catalog is so much more than a virtual card catalog.  When you open the link RSA Cat you will see that on the top right it asks for your library card number, and pin number.  When you enter that information you can then select a choice on the tool bar “My Account” and view all the materials you have checked out.  Also you can view material you are waiting on hold for, or you can renew your materials from this online tool as well.  However, if the material you wish to renew is denied, that means that others are waiting for the materials.  The materials will need to returned on or before the due date.  Using the “My Account” tool will allow you to always know what materials you have and their due dates from any computer or device with an internet connection.  If you have children’s accounts that you need to check, you will need their library card number and pin number to access the information.

A free BookMyne app has been created to connect our library users to the online catalog, so you can have instant access to your Heyworth library on your phone or any other device that uses apps.  It puts all your library information within a few clicks of a keyboard.

Stop by the library if you have any questions or would like further instruction to use these free services.
