What's New at the Garden City Public Library

New Catalog Interface

E-mail Print

Please note our new search box in the banner area at the top of our web page.  Just enter some keywords and click on the "Go" button to search the Garden City collection.  To broaden the search to other participating libraries, click on the drop-down menu and select "All Nassau Libraries" before hitting "Go."

The link in the Main Menu on the left side of the page has been changed from "Catalog/My Account" to "Cardholder Account" and will  take the user directly to the login page.  Once logged in, patrons can see which books they have out, renew books that are coming due, and set up notifications.

The classic ALIScat catalog will soon be supplanted by the new Encore interface.  We have updated the Main Menu link on the left sidebar to point to the Encore version.  Although the two currently coexist and library patrons can use either one, we recommend easing into the new look while there is still a fallback position.  Use the Encore catalog to search for books and other materials in the collection of the Garden City Public Library and other members of the Nassau Library System.

Teens & Tots Storytime Training

E-mail Print

The Young Adult Department, in cooperation with the Garden City Recreation Department, conducts a storytime every Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon in July and the first week of August in the picnic area of the Garden City Pool.

To be a volunteer in this program, you must attend a training session at the Library. Required training will be available for any young adult in 5th grade and up who wishes to participate in the storytime program for the first time this summer. You will learn the skills of book selection, read-aloud techniques, how to engage a young audience, and how to prepare and teach crafts safely.

Contact Young Adult Librarian Marge Kelly at 516-742-8405, ext. 242 to arrange to attend a training session. This program is a community service, and participants earn credit.
