Apologies if this comment is unrelated. Had an inexplicable incident with the Reference Desk this Saturday, 7/22/2012 ~11AM. Requested assistance from one of the Reference Librarians regarding a "Script Error" message I obtained on TWO of the CPL Web computers - which caused the computers to stop or slow down to the point of being unresponsive. The librarian told me (in essence) it was not of their/your responsibility. She told me that the computer was going to continue to be unresponsive.
When the creative writing class let out (about 11:30AM) I was able to log on to Lab 06 terminal. I tried to re-create the "Script Error" message I obtained on the two Web computers using the same computer program. I was unable to create the error and the Lab 06 terminal appears to be running normally.
Sorry to report this, but why was there bit of confusion involved with the Reference librarian? I do not think I was the cause nor at fault.
Thank you for time and kind consideration.
I would like to get on the list of books that you hold for someone
I am not very good on computers so dont know how to go about it
any help will be greatly appreciated
where on your website does it inform library card holders of passes to use to visit musuems?
A friend told me about a music service offered though his library in Rochester Hills called Freegal. This service allows him to download up to 3 songs per week (or something like that). I was wondering if Canton is looking into subscribing to this service.
Please tell me the steps to request renewing books online.
What do I click on etc.
The library should have a rack where patrons can leave magazines that other patrons can take away, in other words donated magazines that others can find and take if they like. Other libraries in the West do this, in Montana, Utah, etc.
I am a HUGE fan of this library. In fact one of the swaying factors in my decision to move back to canton was because of how amazing I think the library is. That being said, I think that the adult section could maybe use a bit of reorganization. It seems that there are only four real genres that the books are sectioned into: Science Fiction, Mystery, Romance, and General Fiction. What about Fantasy, Steampunk, Chick-Lit, Literary Fiction, -and the ever increasing- Paranormal genres? It might be a little easier to find something that I'm interested in if there was a bit more diversity in the genre labeling. For example, I never know where to look for a book if its a mystery series that has romance in it.
I get really confused sometimes because a lot of series/authors bridge multiple gaps in genres, and one of their series might be in the mystery section and another might be in the science fiction even though they deal with similar subjects.
i love how all the books are organized! they are very neet!
I would like to suggest that the Canton "Connection" have a Printer Friendly tab on the front. That way, we can print out a page or an event should we want to.
I personally would like to be able to print the front page. When I tried to do so, only a small portion came out on print.
Or am I missing the "printer friend" tab?
Do you charge for library cards for out of town guest, and if so how much.
I live in Clinton and our library is very small. My husband works at Willow Run so I thought this would be close to him, and I have a friend that says your library is very nice, with a large selection of books.
Thank you so much.
When was the literary founded?
i think that people shouldn't be able to us their last years badges for this year.
As much as I appreciate the library, one thing constantly seems to be my undoing. Whenever I need to use the printer/scanner, I need cash to reload my card. I use plastic everywhere, at all times, and while it may be smart to carry around a few singles, I can never manage to do it. Are there any credit card capable machines (either for the printer or the card loading service) on the market? And if so, would the library consider investing in them? Obviously long term thinking here but I would much appreciate you guys considering it.
I really love Canton Library, the staff are so welcoming. I feel like I am at home. I would pick this library over any other. My daughter loves the kid's place, too. Thanks again.
Have some books that I no longer want or need.
Would the library have any interest in these.
I know there isn't any room available for volunteers at the moment, so should I just wait for an email from the library to know when to start coming to the library to volunteer? I've already turned in my form.
I have about 3 boxes of books I would like to donate to the library.
Do you accept donated books?
If so, how do I bring them to you.
How can i find a list of books that you offer on CD?
One of the librarians is helping a very senior citizen. She even offered her some water! #UncommonKindness at my library. :) (I don't have the name of the librarian, working the reference desk today, Thursday, 4/5/2012, 1:15pm.)
If you put something on hold, how long can will the library hold the items for you?
