You're Going To Need a Bigger Boat....
February 07, 2011
You may have noticed lately how deep your friendly neighborhood library system has ventured into deep, technological waters.
Maybe, you friended your local branch on Facebook, and you now keep tabs on our most recent programs and displays in a paper free format.
Or perhaps, you discovered that you could load your Mid-Continent Public Library card onto your smart phone using a free app called Cardstar, and you have never been caught without your card again.
It’s even possible, you downloaded an ebook onto the new device you received as a gift, and since you used our Overdrive database, it didn’t cost you a dime.
It could also have happened that you read a blog talking about all the new ways the Mid-Continent Public Library is venturing into deep, technological waters.
Whatever way you advance, we want you to know that we are advancing right along with you. And, we welcome any ideas you may have on how we can advance further.
So whether you add us on Facebook, or your link us through your smart phone, or use our databases, or put books on hold from the comforts of home, know that we are with you 24 hours a day.
I think even Chief Brody would find that comforting.
