Fallon County Library news

Librarian National Library Week was a smashing success with over 178 adults and 191 juveniles coming to the Fallon County Library. We also had ten patrons sign up for new library cards. In celebration of this week, we gave out coffee mugs to the adults, flash drives to the teens, and book bags to the youngsters. Cookies were enjoyed by all.

Wednesday was “Meet the New Director” day. Patrons were able to come in and meet Stacey Moore. Some of the changes that are happening are that we’re in the process of placing Accelerated Reader stickers and ranges in and on the books to make it easier for our young patrons to choose books in the AR ranges. This will be helpful to the school aged children and their parents. If you have a book and it doesn’t have AR information, you can look it up by going to www.arbookfind. com.

Some other tools that can be found at your local library are the public access computers, wifi, and a huge selection of databases. Some of the databases you can access are HeritageQuest Online, Ancestry Library Edition, Discover IT!, EBSCOhost Research Databases, and HomeworkMT.

You can access these from your local library, and some are also available on your home computer.

Remember Summer Reading Program sign-ups will be June 3 and then Tuesdays and Thursdays through the month of June. This year’s theme will be “Every Hero Has a Story”.

Winners of our drawings were: adult – Dorothy Arnoldt, young adult – Chantel Tronstad, juvenile – Zander Rost, Sheridan Beach, Noah Arnold, and Nate Abrahamson, new library card – Mia Hastig.
