Library Lovers Month

February is Library Lovers Month, and we’re holding our annual Hearts Campaign to raise money for 2018’s Summer Learning program.

Summer Learning continues to get bigger and better – last year over a hundred adults and 296 kids & teens participated.  Support from the community is what allows us to make Summer Learning such a fun and popular program.

Throughout the month, you can buy a heart at the library’s main desk for $1, $5, or $10.  Your donation will go directly toward this year’s Summer Learning program.

New Light Therapy Lamp Brightens the Library

Are you looking for a little more light in your life?  Try the library’s new light therapy lamp!

The relative lack of sunlight during winter months is thought to negatively affect mood for some people.  Exposure to bright light may help alleviate these “winter blues.”

Our new lamp generates illuminance of up to 10,000 lux.  You’ll find it in the library’s Reading Room.  Library patrons are welcome to come and sit under the lamp anytime.

We hope our lamp helps you have a happy, brighter winter!

Niche Academy: Learn to Use Digital Library Services

At the library, we think we have a lot of great online services: OverDrive e-books & audiobooks; RBdigital magazines; Freegal music; Hoopla movies, TV series, comics... the list goes on!

However, we know that figuring out how to use these services can sometimes be a challenge.  That’s why we’re excited to offer tutorials for these services through Niche Academy.

Banned Books Week 2017

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.  Throughout the week we celebrate libraries as a place where people can freely access materials of all sorts, even books that have been banned or challenged at certain times and places.

Library Card Sign-up Month 2017

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Pulaski County Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure community members have the most important card of all – a free library card!

We all know that a library card lets you check out books, magazines, DVDs, and more, in-person at the library.  But did you know that a library card also gets you access to digital services anytime, anywhere?
