We admit we have been rather lax lately in getting the new book lists up.
However, we have found a way for you to still see what we're adding to the collection, when we're adding it!
You will now see on the main library page, a section in the lower right-hand corner titled "Latest Additions..." In it we have created a RSS feed of our new books -- which means that listing is updated at the same time as we update our catalog!
Also: everything that shows up in the "Latest Additions" box is a link that takes you directly to the catalog record for that item, so you can read more about it or place a hold if you like.
Questions? Let us know! :)
Columbia County Rural Library District received funds from Banner Bank and The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library to replace old and worn children’s books. Many of the well-loved books, classics, and favorite authors, like Dr. Seuss, are in need of being replaced. The Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library submitted a grant to Banner Bank to help CCRLD purchase replacement titles of worn books. Banner Bank generously awarded the Friends with $200. In addition the Friends of the Dayton Memorial Library agreed to donate an additional $500 to CCRLD. CCRLD will be able to purchase about 60 new library-bound replacement books with the funds of $700.
