Proper Viewing of the Solar Eclipse

Weather permitting. The library will have a limited number of free eclipse viewing glasses along with safe viewing instructions that can be picked up from the Reference Desk starting at 10am on August 21 (first-come, first served, one per person). Since there has been a huge demand for glasses, it is a good idea to call ahead first to make sure that we have eclipse glasses still available before visiting. MORE

Library Renovations ~ Update

Construction of two additional study rooms is underway on the main level. One room will be a little larger to accommodate 4-6 people comfortably. The existing study rooms will have some soundproofing installed.

Blueprint "Under Construction"-copyright marinv/Fotolia.comThrough the duration of construction, this area is off limits to staff and public. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the lack of access to the existing study rooms. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Library Director Barbara Bailey, by phone at 860-652-7717 or by email.

New RBdigital App

RBdigital LogoIf you have been using the mobile app OneClickdigital for audiobooks and eBooks and Zinio for Libraries to read magazines online, these apps have now merged into one app called RBdigital. You can now browse and check out items right in the app! Your user name and password remain the same, and all of your existing titles are still checked out; however, you will need to download the titles again.

Other new RBdigital enhancements include:

• Improved navigation
• Enhanced searching
• In-app previews
• Expanded help pages

On Thursday, September 14, our Recorded Books representative will be here to present a one-hour lecture and demonstration on "Free eBooks, Mags and Flicks with RBdigital." For information about this program, click here.
