Baldwin Boettcher

Holds at the Library!!

Does Baldwin Boettcher not have the book you are looking for?  Is this book at one of our other locations?  Did you know you may place a hold on that item using your library barcode and pin number?  Then what happens?  Everyday the libraries are searching for a list of books that need to be pulled from the shelves to fill your requests.  If the item is requested by one of our Baldwin Boettcher customers, the item stays here.  If the item is requested by a customer from another branch then the item goes to the other branch.

What's a Flash Drive?

Come to the library on September 5th and find out what a flash drive is, what it does and just how to use it.  It may also be known as a jump drive, memory stick, or a usb drive.  At 3 pm, in our meeting room we will have a computer class to tell you just how to use it.  Trying to send an attachment from your e-mail to someone else but need to make changes first?  This class will tell you all about that.

Check Out the Moon...

The Moon

Because it will be full tonight, Thursday, June 12!  So take a moment to go outside and look for it in the southeastern sky.  Last night’s moon was high in the sky at dusk, and it had an almost delicate appearance, like fine glass.  What sort of beauty will our moon give us tonight?

As part of our Adult Summer Reading Program at Baldwin Boettcher, we will display books about the moon all summer long.  Science and astronomy, space exploration and the astronauts, folklore, photography, and maybe even a favorite book from your childhood – all will be on hand and available for check-out through August 9.
