Colour-blindess

My husband is red/green colour-blind. With the current check out system, he can't tell when an item has been checked out (yellow --> green). This is a significant barrier for visual users. I'm surprised that "colour blindness" was not addressed when looking at usability. 40-45% of male pop has this colour-blindness issue. You could fix with changing from yellow to blue. Thanks.

public restrooms

While in the restroom there is no shelf to put library materials (books etc.) on.

A Note About Mindfulness and Language

I wanted to put a reminder out there to all, since It's easy for us all to forget, that this forum is a public one on a very public site, so that means people of all ages, from the very, very young to the very old can read it. As such be respectful of others, and be careful about choices of language in swearing. It's good to be yourself, and I'm no fan of censorship, but for the sake of any 8 year old who stumbles upon this forum, I ask that you just be mindful and respectful with your choice of language. Or at least creative with "---'s". I'm not worried. I trust you guys with this.

Not getting email notification for any overdue Books or DVD

Hi, I never get email notification on my email ID for some reason for any overdue books or DVDs or Games. So due to that I end up paying fines as I am not updated. My Wifes always sends her email notification for everything. I wanted to know why it is my account is acting like this. I have updated my email address couple of time and it has never worked. I was charged over due fines today for the Games I had. I would like to request to take $ 4.00 fine which was charged on my account and try to find out why my account is not working. Regards

Storytime

I've been very disappointed by the lack of storytime options lately. There used to be so many times available and now there are so few I can't take either of my kids anymore. They are 16 months and 4 yrs and go to bed at 7:00 PM. If nothing else I'd like to take my little guy but I have to pick up my eldest from preschool at 10:45. It would be nice if the "Walking To Not Yet Two" classes had more time slots or was just 30 minutes earlier. I really miss our library time!

We never received our state income tax forms for the 2009 tax year. Do you have these available? Where do I go to get them? Thank you.

It's National Pancake Week!

This week, from February 14-20, happens to be National Pancake Week! I don't know about you, but pancakes are one of my all-time favorites. If you're a pancake lover too, celebrate this week by reading some pancake books, trying out some pancake recipes, and of course, eating pancakes. Maybe one night this week you can have pancakes for dinner - that's always a fun thing to do! Enjoy those flapjacks this week, everyone!

Copy Room

Janine(?) in the copy room went out of her way to help me print from a jump drive that would not register on several computers. Pleasant, helpful, confidential. Please recognize her for her commitment to patrons.

Chairs Too Small

Why are the chairs in the chilrens area all too small to work the computers? There are 3 or 4 adult chairs (that the children use). To type you have to either sit on your feet, stand or type with your arms at a very uncomfortable angle. Why offer computers and then place them on table to high?
 

P-90x

Good Morning. I was wondering why I could not request P-90x thru inter-library loan. It is available at Kent District Library, but the following message came up, "not avail. for inter net loan - please contact your library." If it is not available thru inter-loan, would you please put it on request to purchase. The P-90x system was discussed on the Oprah Winfrey show last week with Pink - once it's on Oprah...I would love to see it at CPL! Thank You!

smileys

We've got some new smileys! laugh -which you might recognize from the old forum. More new ones are on the way too, so stay tuned. We've also got images along the side of the forum, so if you want to post some art it'll show up on the front page too for people to see.
till later - byebye

research class

I notice the Northville library offers a research class called REAL research (realiable. expert. accurate. legitimate). It helps students avoid the free web and use sources that really matter in the library, including free databases. Do you offer something like this. I am particularly interested in the class for my homeschooled high schoolers (2). Thanks, Debbie Crocker
