A new look for the Library Newsletter
We are trying a different layout for the email newsletter. The goal is still to deliver a month's worth of program listings, pictures, and articles about goings-on and services at the Library to your inbox. To make that package smaller and easier to scroll through, links to comprehensive lists and details have been added.
We would like to know what you think of it. You can leave a basic rating of the changes in the scale below. 10 means this is a move of unparalleled brilliance, 1 means it's the worst thing since the arctic air came to stay. Your more detailed comments are even more welcome. Please follow this link
to give us written feedback about these changes and the newsletter in general. Thank you!
