You may have noticed a change…

Posted by Kristi on June 7, 2010

…in what you can access on the Internet on the computers in the library.  That’s right, effective this month, you can now visit your favorite social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, and video and picture sites like YouTube and Flickr, RIGHT HERE at the Normal Public Libary!  You asked for it, and we’ve delivered!

Now, if you’re under the age of 18 and you’ve tried recently to use your library card to get online here at NPL, you may have had some difficulties.  This is because, along with our new, open Internet policy, we’ve also made a few changes in how we register users’ library cards.  Children and teens under 18 do need to have a parent’s approval to be able to access the Internet and check out DVDs and CDs.  So if you get a chance sometime soon, bring your parent along with you to the library and we’ll update your card so you can enjoy all of the new websites you can visit.  Meanwhile, let’s celebrate our new policy with a video.  Here’s one of my favorites, featuring the band OK Go and the crew of Synn Labs and their creation of a massive Rube Goldberg machine to illustrate their song “This Too Shall Pass.”  Enjoy!

    This is the BEST!! Tucker is now searching for objects to convert our entire house into a bigger mess than it already is! (I am currently hiding the paint!)
    Thanks 😉
