Notes from Our Director: 

As we head into a new year, it's a great time to discover -- or rediscover -- the resources available at your library. Last month's newsletter mentioned some library services you might not be aware of. Here are a few more: 
  • We recently added access to the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) to our resources. GVRL is a collection of specialized and up-to-date resources on a number of topics, including test prep, career and job search resources, computers and technology, finances, cooking, and more, available 24/7 with no checkout! Titles can be browsed, searched and downloaded at any time from any internet-connected device. Need help? Our staff can answer your questions and connect you with the resources you need. 
  • Starting February 9, we are pleased to be able to offer a legal clinic on a monthly basis, the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:00 pm. Get a free, private, and confidential consultation with an experienced attorney. This service is made available through The Legal Project. Appointments are required; contact Jennifer Latte at 518-435-1770 or email jguillot@legalproject.org
  • Did you know that the library offers fax services? You can send or receive a fax for just $1.00 per page, any time that the library is open.
  • Do you love audiobooks? In addition to our collection of audiobooks, we also host a rotating collection of audiobooks from Upper Hudson Library System. The rotating collection of 20-30 titles changes every two months. Stop in and see what's available! Remember, you can also request any titles available in the Upper Hudson Library System Catalog.   
We always welcome your suggestions and comments! Stop in, give us a call at 518-732-0879, or send an email to director@castletonpubliclibrary.org.

All of us at Castleton Public Library look forward to serving you in 2016!

Best, 

Melissa Tacke, Library Director
