With an entrance on Route 96, patrons can easily access the safer parking area once it’s complete. More details coming soon!

Libby, by Overdrive
Libby allows tablet, smartphone and kindle users to easily access ebooks and audiobooks using your library card. With an improved interface, this is one of the easiest ways to access digital media while you’re away from the library.

Your login is your library card number and your pin is the last 4 digits of your phone number on file with the library.

If you’re stuck inside and trying to use this time to tackle some family genealogy research, Heritage Quest is a great resource. It’s an online database of records with broad searchability. Created by ancestory.com, users can access the database for free thru the library system.
Step 1: Go to flls.org and select the FOR THE PUBLIC drop down menu. Click on HeritageQuest. Users will be redirected to the main search page of HeritageQuest.

Something to keep in mind – if you’re searching for a specific person in a specific place, remember that town names changes, county lines move, and misspellings did occur. Keep searches to within a date range, and search criteria broad enough not to exclude results that may be helpful.
