Author Alerts is a new digital service allowing you to sign up to be notified immediately, by email or text message, when books by your favorite authors, audiobooks read by your favorite narrators, and DVDs by your favorite actors and directors are added into any MVLC member library’s collection. Simply follow the link above to create a profile with either an email address or cell phone number.Then, they add your favorite authors or performers to that profile. When any of the MVLC member libraries order new titles by that author or performer, you will automatically receive an alert via email or text message. Alerts include a link to the item in the catalog so you can place a request immediately if you so choose.
Our Library of Things is a collection of non-traditional items available to patrons to check out. The collection supports lifelong learning and creativity by providing the physical tools necessary to explore new areas of interest and learn new skills. The Newbury Town Library has always been a place where you can come to learn anything you are curious about – now we are offering you the tools to satisfy and encourage that curiosity. Early additions to the collection include: a volleyball set, decorative cake pans, a crochet kit, a children’s Dot robotics kit, a SAD daylight lamp, paper quilling kits, an electricity monitor, and wifi hotspots.
