The Rodman Public Library Children’s Department is embarking on a new adventure... our first blog! Join Janet Metzger, Head of the Children’s Department and fellow Children’s Librarian, Stacy Digianantonio, as they share with you their love of children’s books, reading and libraries. The goal is to keep everyone (kids, parents, caregivers, and teachers) in the know about current materials, services and events available through the Children’s Department. We invite you to share with us any of your thoughts or questions through this new offering.
Rodman Library offers interactive, instructor-led courses that can be taken entirely online. It’s through a program called Gale Courses that supports lifelong learning and continuing education. This program is free, with unlimited usage to library patrons, and can be found as a link on the library’s career page at www.rodmanlibrary.com/career_testing.
You can take the library with you wherever you go through the use of Library Anywhere, a mobile application that lets you use the library on your smart phone or other web-capable device. With this application, users can search the library catalog, place holds on items, and have access to library databases. Users can also find library hours and locations, including bookmobile stops, send questions to library staff members, and find information about events happening at the library. You can now have access to all of this right from your phone.
Library Anywhere has a special application for iPhones (iPads,etc.) and Androids, and a universal version for Blackberry and all other web-enabled devices. Search Rodman Library's catalog, place holds, renew items, and more, from your phone. Simply search for Library Anywhere in the app store (or equivalent) on your phone and download the application for free. Those not using iPhones or Android phones can find the app by visiting http://www.libanywhere.com/m/286.
