Quebec Public Library Week, from October 15 to 22
To celebrate Quebec Public Library Week, we will be cancelling all fines for late books brought back during the week.
We also wish to encourage our members to participate in the concours Ma Biblio which invites them to complete the statement: "Ma bibliothèque, pour moi, c'est....", (or in English: "For me, my library is...") on-line, at: http://semainedesbibliotheques.ca/concours.php,
by publishing a photo or a text on Facebook accompanied by the hashtag MaBiblio, or by taking a drawing based on this theme to the library. Participants will have an opportunity to win one of three $300 cheques offered by the Association des libraires du Québec.
On November 11, the historical drama, La Reine Garçon, will be presented at 8 p.m. in its original Swedish version with French sub-titles.
On December 9, an animated film will be shown, Tout en haut du monde, the first prize winner at the Festival du Film d’Animation de Annecy in 2015. As an exception, this film for the entire family will be screened at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children 12 years old or under.
All information concerning the Cine-Club will be presented on the library's website at www.pbv-lgl.org or on the Ciné-Cinema's Facebook page.
We are pleased to announce our next art exhibition featuring pastels by Judith Stockwell Taylor and Céline Lemieux. Both artists have lived in our region for many decades and art has been a constant in their lives. Céline Lemieux worked as an elementary school teacher for the Commission Scolaire des Grandes Seigneuries until her retirement 12 years ago, while Judith Taylor worked for the Gleaner and as the Adult Education Coordinator for the Chateauguay Valley Regional School Board until her retirement in 2003. Both of these talented artists are pupils of Pat Walsh.
New Web OPAC (Online Catalogue)
The New Books and Online Catalogue have merged into one. We have upgraded our Web OPAC to be more up to date, dynamic and free flowing where you can not only see the New Books that we have added to your library but all new items, Books, CDs, DVDs, audio books, etc. With a new robust search engine and multiple query options you can narrow your search down to exactly what you are looking for. If you have one of our hand-outs with a map of the library and all locations within, you can even search a given location for your items.
NEW to the web OPAC is a member area. By logging in with your library card number as your USERNAME and your given PIN for your PASSWORD, you can have access to a list of items you currently have checked out, a list of your fines and payments, and your circulation history (a list of all items you have ever checked out).
Having access to your member area also allows you to create a future list of books to read by putting them into your BOOK BIN which you can email or print a hard copy at any time.
You must log in to your member area not only to reserve books as you have on the old Web search system, but now you can also renew your currently checked out items right from your member area. There will be new features added in the future to make this great new web OPAC an even greater experience for you.
We hope you enjoy the added functionality that this new web OPAC brings and we thank the volunteers who spent many hours to bring this to you so that you, the members, can have a much richer web experience associated with your Little Green Library!
