New policies, features at the Sanibel Public Library

By Staff | Oct 19, 2009

The Sanibel Public Library welcomes all of our patrons returning from their summer away and invites new visitors as well. While you were away, we have been thinking of ways to make your wonderful library even better!

We have extended the loan policy. You may now take out a total of 30 items:

10 current new books

10 magazines

10 videos (any format)

10 audios (any format)

All materials may be checked out for two weeks. All videos (any format) may be checked out for one week.

Also, you may place up to 10 items on hold at any time.

The Large Type Book Collection has been expanded, with an addition of about 100 new books to the collection. Featured authors include Louis L’Amour, Fern Michaels, JD Robb, David Baldacci and Iris Johansen.

The Computer Area has expanded printing capabilities. A wireless print station has been added for our laptop users. We also have implemented the capability to print for our Mac users. Photo printing is now available for a nominal fee of $1 per page, for photo printing on photo paper right from your memory stick or USB. We are also offering hands-on computer workshops this season, so watch the local papers for more details.

In addition, the Children’s Area has expanded the Early Literacy Station, which now has two interactive stations available for the kids. Be sure to check out the newly remodeled dollhouse – courtesy of Joelene Black – while you are there.

We can’t wait to see you!
