Library Corner – Week of November 26, 2018
Bridge Closing – Home Access Available
Just a reminder that we do have several electronic resources available to Library Patrons; so if you have a library membership or would like one, please give us a call (204-345-2653) or stop by and we will set you up with “at home access.” You will need a 14-digit barcode style membership number for most of these services. Besides being able to browse our Library Catalogue, you can place Holds for pickup when you are in Town, and renew your books. You can search other libraries in Manitoba using fILL and place your requests from home. There are ebooks, audiobooks and emagazines available online through eLibraries Manitoba and RB Digital; as well as Ebscohost (a reference database featuring automotive, small engine repairs, home maintenance, etc.) and Global Road Warrior – a very powerful travel database – all free to members of the Lac du Bonnet Library. Our staff would be happy to help you get started.
