New Service – Children’s Book Bundles

Posted by lclemons on

Not sure what books to choose for your child?

Check out a new service at the library called Children’s Book Bundles!

Complete the form below and our children’s librarian will select 3-5 books, place them on hold for you, and let you know when they are ready for pick up.

Adults are encouraged to preview the book selections. While we will try our best, we cannot guarantee every book will be the right fit. If you don’t like it, simply bring it back and we will be happy to try again!

Support Your Library TODAY! #GivingTuesday

Posted by lclemons on

Kick off the giving season today! #GIVINGTUESDAY

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This day (December 1, 2020) is an opportunity to use your individual power of generosity to make an impact.

This year has been filled with challenges, but the Crown Point Community Library has reimagined and expanded traditional library services to meet the interests and needs of our community:

    • Offered contactless curbside service at both locations.
    • Offered one-on-one reference assistance by phone.
    • Extended free WiFi access to the parking lot areas at both locations.
    • Facilitated an online system to process new library cards, updated expired cards, or assigned pin numbers for community members.
    • Expanded online access for all digital resources. 
    • Created an eLearning Resource guide to assist schools and teachers.
    • Produced virtual programming videos, for all ages, including curbside take & make activity bags.
    • Offered curbside computer carts equipped with internet access, printing, scanning, and copying capabilities.
    • Acquired new digital resources: Creativebug, TumbleMath, TeenBook Cloud, and AudioBookCloud.
    • Provided outreach materials to senior living centers.

In addition, our Friends of the Library would like to thank the community for supporting their organization throughout the year and attending their recent book sales.  As a special benefit, they have extended the membership, for their current members,  through 2021.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in these unusual times. 

Please support your Library by participating in #GivingTuesday!

services to improve the quality of lives and create a stronger community.
