- New Two-Way Translation Device from TranslateLive:
The Instant Language Assistant (ILA) provides real-time translation so that any two people can have a conversation no matter what language they speak. It supports over 120 languages and users can speak, spell out, or type to convey their message. The device is simple to use and library staff is always happy to help. Stop by the circulation desk to try it out!
- New Teen Room:
Our new teen room is coming along nicely! We are excited to be able to offer teens a space of their own. The space will feature high-top tables and chairs, a lounge area, the entire Young Adult book collection, and three individual study rooms. Here is a sneak peek of the new room so far:
- VOX Books: COMING SOON!
VOX Books are audio books that are attached to print books! We are working on adding a number of these to our children’s collection and are excited for children (and parents) to try these out. They are fully portable and can be used with or without headphones. Available in Picture Books, Easy Readers, Chapter Books, and Nonfiction!
- Wall Street Journal Online:
Main Library Alliance is excited to announce that The Wall Street Journal will now be available digitally to all library cardholders. Patrons will have access to unlimited 3-day “checkouts”, unlimited articles, E-Replica of that day’s paper, more than 30 newsletters & alerts, and more!
- New Self-Checkout Kiosk:
You now have another option for checking out your items! Our second self-checkout kiosk can be found just outside of the Children’s Room.
