screenshot of Nassau Public Libraries Mobile appThe Nassau public libraries have launched a new mobile application, which is compatible with Apple and Android devices. Library users are now able to get access to many library services in the palm of their hands. The Nassau Public Libraries Mobile app is available for download free of charge.

Users of this new app have the ability to search for materials, view events and programs, and find additional information. After a user chooses a home library, the remaining menus will change based on that library’s offerings and will remain set to the home library for future use. Patrons can search for movies, books, and more. Audio and eBooks can be downloaded directly to a mobile device for instant access.

According to Garden City Public Library Director Lisa Paulo, “The Nassau Public Libraries Mobile app provides a user-friendly interface for patrons to take advantage of all that the Garden City Public Library offers through their personal smartphone or tablet. This new service will enhance the overall library experience for our patrons.”

Through the Museum Passes portal, patrons can visit the Library webpage to view a list of available museum passes. Another key component, the Research button, sends users to online resources and homework help. Patrons have the ability to view their checked-out items and holds. Users can choose to receive notifications about their account status.

Garden City library users are invited to explore this dynamic application and connect to the services, programs, and activities at their library. Visit the App Store or Google Play and search for “Nassau Public Libraries Mobile.”

Art educator Karen Morea will instruct young adults in how to decorate tote bags with fabric paint on Wednesday, August 5, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. By using stencils, the bags can reflect the summer theme of superheroes, but artists can also create any design they want.

Register online on Eventkeeper beginning July 20 for this program, which is limited to 20 young adults.

Funding this program is provided by the Friends of the Garden City Public Library.

 

Beanie Babies® Exhibit

Helen Anderson of West Hempstead will share her collection of Beanie Babies®, showcased at the Library from August 1-30. Enjoy viewing 24 Ty Beanie Babies® including: Chocolate the Moose, Cutie the Doll, Adorable Annie the Doll, Fuzz the Bear, Niles the Camel, Ivan the Bear, Fleecie the Lamb, Polka Dot the Dog, Katrine the Cat, and more.

Beanie Babies® were invented by H. Ty Warner during 1993 with nine affordably priced toy animals. Each cute animal has a matching cute name. They are stuffed with plastic beans (thus, Beanie) making them less stiff and more lifelike. These appealing toys could be purchased and collected for less than five dollars a piece. Ty Warner is a generous philanthropist with millions of dollars donated to underprivileged children.

School Supply Drive for Homeless

E-mail Print

The Garden City Public Library is hosting a school-supply drive for the homeless now through August 10. The Library needs your help to collect new school supplies for homeless children on Long Island. The "Supply Our Students Drive" is sponsored by the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless (LICH). Each year, they pack thousands of backpacks with the school supplies they collect through this drive. The backpacks are distributed through their network of homeless shelters in late August. Last summer, they distributed over 4,000 back packs to kids in need on Long Island.

With your help, we can help LICH distribute more backpacks this year than ever before. Every child deserves to start their school year with the tools they need to succeed. A collection box is stationed in the vestibule of the Library now through August 10.

The Long Island Coalition for the Homeless is a 501c3, non-profit organization based in Amityville, NY. Their mission is to eliminate homelessness on Long Island and improve the lives of Long Islanders who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
