National Library Week- The Inner Workings of the LPL Part V

National Library Week- The Inner Workings of the LPL Part V

To check out items, you need to bring your library card. There are two ways you can do this. One is using a physical card and the other is using a digital card. There is an app you can download called the Westchester Library System where you can add your card digitally. Most of the time everyone has their phones so this is a great alternative if you forgot your physical card at home. If you don’t have your card or the app, we can use a photo ID to check items out to you but the preferred method is of course your library card.Read More Read More

Most of our books are ordered through Baker & Taylor. When these books arrive, our library staff David R., George C., Laura P., Linnea M. or Veronica B. empty the box and make sure everything that is in the box is on the packing slip. The staff member then enters the invoice number of the packing slip into the computer to let the computer know that the order arrived.Read More Read More
