Take the Plunge and "Click Around"
August 13, 2010
I am really excited about the new MCPL Website. It truly is a virtual library. Besides the new eye-catching look, the home page offers links to lots of exciting and useful things. It's fun to just "click around" and see where you end up. For example, under "Books, Movies, Music" you can find the most recent additions to the library's catalog, as well as upcoming additions. There is even a list of this week's most popular titles. All of the titles have links to the catalog so you can request them quickly.
"Events" will take you to a list of all the upcoming events in the system, or you can limit the list by Branch, Date, or Event type with the "events advanced search." You can even sign up online or ask to be notified when new events are posted.
The "Teens" page offers Events, Homework Help, Recommended Reads, and weekly polls, as well as Teen Blogs and featured works by teens.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, so take the plunge and "click around". You never know where you'll end up.
