We are still waiting on the 1040A Booklets.
We have all the other forms for the Federal, Pennsylvania State Forms and booklets as well as the York Adams Forms and the PA 1000 Rent Rebate Booklets.
The staff at the New Oxford Area Library, a branch of the
Adams County Library System, have been
taking classes and practicing to read on a Nook or Kindle with the library’s
eBook collection. Personally, I do prefer reading an old fashioned book to an
eBook, but I did read a book on my laptop.It was nice not having to hold a heavy book of about 400 pages, and the
fact that I could adjust the font to a larger or smaller size as needed was
great. I read a lot of different kinds of books so I did not have any trouble
finding a book to download and read. I have had staff and patrons show me their
Nooks or Kindles and they love the eBooks at the library.
also learning and teaching many of our patrons how to use their new laptops. I
really like the “Dummies” books for computers, they are so easy to use and the screenshots
found within are so helpful.
With more of the world becoming so tech-oriented, communication
is very important for the library.We
have just started a Facebook page for the New Oxford Area Library, and several
summers ago we started our first blog. I am getting better at posting and I am
excited about the new ways to share our program information. I continue to
print flyers and handouts but now I send a note to both the Blog and the
Facebook accounts and it is reaching more people. Feel free to respond and let
me know how I am doing with my posts.
we’re promoting programs online, writing a newspaper article is my first way to
talk about the library.Word of mouth
also never goes out of style.Here are a
