The Coffee County Manchester Public Library has joined the nationwide “Geek the Library” campaign as of January 1, 2014. The Geek the Library campaign uses the word “geek” as a verb meaning to love, enjoy or have a passion for something.
By joining this campaign, the Library hopes to raise awareness and change public perceptions about libraries. The premise is that no matter what a person “geeks” they will be able to find books or other information about that topic at their local public library. It helps show the library is still relevant and useful today
This nationwide campaign is sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to share knowledge about what libraries offer, their funding sources and to help fundraise to help libraries.
The new Overdrive Media Console launches today.
If you have iOS6 or Android OS 4 update your OverDriveLibs app today to get the update.
Learn more about the changes with a quick video tutorial for the new Overdrive Media Console 3.0
We are happy to announce that you can now create temporary lists or permanent lists in eLibrary.
A temporary list is only available while you’re logged into eLibrary. Once you log out the list is deleted.
A permanent list remains on your account even after you log out of eLibrary.
To create either list you must log into eLibrary by using your barcode and PIN number (if you do not have your PIN you must ask for it at the circulation desk).
For the temporary list browse the catalog and find the titles you want and select the checkbox next to the title called Keep. You can see all the titles you have selected by clicking on the menu choice called Kept.
To create a permanent list you must first create a list by selected the menu choice called permanent list. You can create multiple lists but only one list can be active at a time. Once you have an active list you can browse the catalog and select titles by clicking in the checkbox called +MyList
You can then view your lists by clicking on Permanent Lists in the menu.
