What’s in Your Wallet?

By Lynn Rosato, Library Director
January/February 2015

Your Bethel Library card may be the most valuable card in your wallet, and I invite you to stop by, take a look at our webpage, and check out the calendar of events to find out all that it can do for you!

Take a class and learn how to use Facebook, Photoshop Elements, Word, Excel, or Mail Merge. Get tips on doing family history research or bring your child to one of the many programs we have for kids ages 2 to 18. Come to a presentation on completing the FAFSA financial aid forms for college bound students, or how to use Linkedin for business. Enjoy movie screenings, participate in one of the many book discussion series, or download e-books, audiobooks, movies and TV through Hoopla and Overdrive.

Log into one of the several online databases from home or at the Library and learn a new language with Mango Languages, take a practice exam for school or a new career with Learning Express, fix your car using Automobile Repair Reference Center, or research your investments with Morningstar Investment Research Center. Download the boopsie app and have the Library’s catalog at your fingertips, access your record, or use the locator in any store to see if the library owns the book so you can try before you buy.

And, of course, we have over 120,000 physical books, audiobooks, DVDs, and magazines that you may borrow, with new materials being added every week. So come and explore. Make 2015 the year you discover the most valuable card in your wallet!
