The Library System is pleased to add several new popular titles to our Zinio Downloadable Magazines collection. Over 20 titles have been added, including Allure, The Atlantic, GQ, the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and many others.

If you are already a Zinio patron, go to your Library Zinio account to check out the new titles. If you are a library patron and you are not yet taking advantage of this service, which allows patrons to instantly download full digital versions of over 100 magazines with no waiting and no returns ever necessary, this is a great time to try it for the first time!

New Electronic Resource

The Library System is pleased to announce a new online language-learning product. Pronunciator offers self-paced courses for 80 different languages. Patrons can choose different levels of language mastery, from basic phrases for travel up to serious language study. And patrons are not restricted to using English as their first language—users can pick from 50 different languages to learn in, meaning that Pronunciator is also an excellent ESOL tool.

New Community Libraries

​Construction continues for the new Montclair Community Library and the new Gainesville Community Library.​ On Sunday, November 2, 2014, the Barnes Historic House was relocated to the Montclair Community Library Site.
