calendarBooks from our main collection circulate for 30 days, 60 days, or for a semester, depending on the patron.  Some can be renewed, fines are sometimes assessed, and recalls or holds can be placed, depending on the material type. What would you suggest we do to improve our policies? Is there something you would have us change?

The news about Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson has the world talking about how popular culture has changed and how it has changed us over the years. Did an artist, musician, or actor have an impact on your life?

Feedback Friday: Do we speak your language?

no_shoes_sign_in_farsi

Knowing other languages empowers one to travel, to study abroad, or to interact more readily with people from other countries. Should we add new titles that would introduce you to the sight or sound of other languages? Or do we already have what you need?

Feedback Friday: Would you rather curl up with a Kindle, Sony e-reader, or a good book?

There’s quite a buzz about the new technology that allows people to download (and read) books and newspaper subscriptions on an electronic device no bigger than a composition book. Some are embracing the electronic book with open arms. Some aren’t. Where do you stand on the use of e-readers?

Feedback Friday: Change is good.

iced_teaIf you could change one thing about Falvey Library, what would you change? Over the years we’ve added a coffee shop, started a laptop loan program, and opened a 24-hour lounge. What else can we do to improve the library?

Feedback Friday: Have you seen any good movies lately?

santa_monica_theater1It’s summertime and the living is easy (or easier than it was a few weeks ago). New movies are coming out all the time, many of which are based on books (Coraline, Angels & Demons, and Slumdog Millionaire). Have you seen any good movies lately? Did you read the book first? How do they compare?
