Email reminder system

Question: A reminder system that automatically emails a reminder that books will be due soon would be great. They do that at Mount Laurel Library. You probably would get your books back on time more often.

Answer:
We agree with you that an email reminder system for due dates would be
useful. We do currently generate email notices for overdues, and hold
pick-up availability, but our current budget prevents us from adding the
software necessary for email due-date reminders. Thank you for the suggestion.

Children's CD-ROM software

Question: Could the children's department acquire some educational children's CD-ROM software for loan?

Our answer:

Thank you for your excellent suggestion. The library has acquired a small
collection of children's CD-ROMs through donation and purchase, and we are
currently working on repackaging and cataloging these items to get them
ready for loan. Look for our new collection sometime after the holidays.
