Hunger Games Book Discussion

Join us on July 16 from 7:00-8:30 PM for a discussion of:

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins — In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games," a fight to the death on live TV. Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she is forced to represent her district in the Games. The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed.

Metro Detroit magazine

The October issue of Metro Detroit magazine has a Lover's Lane ad on the back, and is displayed so the images are clearly visible, and are not appropriate for all ages. Please find another way to display.

Farewell, Miss Kristen

It is with greatly mixed emotions that we bid a fond farewell to our Children's, Tween & Teen Services Program Specialist, Kristen Kostielney. Kristen will be leaving us in September to take a position as a head start teacher with the Campagna Center in Alexandria, Virginia. Please join us in celebrating the nearly 21 years Kristen has spent with CPL and wishing her all the best with a farewell reception on Thursday, September 15 from 5:00-6:30PM in the Purple Room.

Kristen's departure opens up a position here at the library and we are currently accepting applications for the Children's, Tween & Teen Services Program Specialist position.

Improvement Suggestions

1. Add cushions to the computer chairs. I apply for jobs daily and sit for hours. The wood chairs are very hard and uncomfortable. 2. Add lockers w/combinations, like the fitness area at the Summit. When I am here hours applying for jobs online, I must gather all my belongings and take them to the restroom or outside when answering/making a phone call, as phone call reception is poor to non-existent in the building. 3. Consider adding restrooms inside the main building. Again, when using the computers, it is cumbersome to gather belongings, check out materials and then use the restroom; only to bring all back into the building when done using the restroom.

Returned book at Wayne Public Library - Not showing up in Patrol Record (yet)

Hello I returned a book at Wayne Libray yesterday (8/17) evening. It is still showing up as checked out in Patrol Record. Can you tell me how long would it take for it to reflect as being returned? As this book is due today (8/18), I am worried if I will be charged late fee.


Will there be Storytime in the fall? Looking at the calendar, it looks like there's just a playgroup available.

Clash of the Titans

I placed DVD Clash of the Titans (2010) on hold thinking this was the recent remake. It turns out this is the original from 1981 which was apparently reissued in 2010. There are 61 holds on this so I am guessing that other people made the same mistake. Is the library planning on ordering the remake of Clash of the Titans? Thank you.


Is there not any way I can review on line what I have borrowed in the past? I've listened to quite a few and am starting to have a hard time picking what I have not already listened to by certain authors. Kindly respond. Thank you

Online Access: Music Collection

Why not allow online access to the entire music collection? Benefits:

  1. It would be a more efficient way for patrons to search and use the entire catalog. Multiple Patrons could access the same material at once. Easier to place music on a MP3 player
  2. It would reduce damage, scratches, lost material, etc
  3. Other Libraries could share their collections (interlibrary loan) - increasing the size of both collections at a minimal cost

As a service project the Cubscouts/Boyscouts could use the computer room to move all of the CDs to a digital repository. (Many hands make light heavy work)
