Letter to the members - February 2021- CORRECTION – Cost of the membership card - Hinchinbrooke

The library is opening its doors again

Good news! The partial lifting of public health measures now allows our members to enter The Little Green Library again, while respecting safety measures such as wearing a mask, social distancing and disinfecting hands on entering. Children must be supervised by their parents at all times.

Members can continue using the catalogue and reserving books on line or by telephone but, as of February 16, they can also come to the library to select their books themselves.

As of February 16, the Library will be open at the following times:

Day Opening hours
Tuesday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thursday 2 p.m to 4:30 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 

The Little Green Library offers its members a large collection that is continually being renewed, with over 25,000 novels, reference books, biographies, magazines, graphic novels, books for children and teens, audio books, large-print books and DVDs, all in both English and French.

As a member you also have access to the vast collection of the Bibliothèques et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) free of charge.

Visit our site at www.pbv-lgl.org or our Facebook page https://fr-ca.facebook.com/PetiteBibliothequeVerteLittleGreenLibrary

Among other things you will find a list of our new books.

 

Returning borrowed books

Please return your books by placing them in the book chute beside the main entrance. Books are placed in quarantine for 48 hours before being replaced on the shelves.

Cost of the membership card for 2021

The cost of a membership card is $20/family. The rate for children 16 years of age or younger who would like to have an individual card is $5.

Please note that the contribution of the municipalities to the Library allows us to offer the membership card free of charge to residents of the municipalities of Dundee, Franklin, Hinchinbrooke and Huntingdon.

 

Used book boutique

Second hand books are on sale in a space set aside for this purpose. The income from these sales helps to fund our services.

Every Saturday, you can purchase a bag of books for $2. At other times, prices vary from 50 cents to $1 per book.

In order to respect social distancing measures, only one person can enter the boutique at a time.

Identification of the book sections

During your next visit to the Library, you will note that identification of the sections has been improved. For example, a special section has been set aside for graphic novels.

As a member, are you satisfied with the services offered at the Library and would like to talk about it?

The management team is preparing a professional video to present and highlight the services offered at The Little Green Library. We are looking for members who would be interested in talking about their experience as a user. Filming will take place at the end of February, naturally, respecting all sanitary measures.

The team of volunteers at The Little Green Library

 

Borrowing e-books

The Little Green Library currently has some 100 e-books in its collection, most of which are in French.

Until now, these books have rarely been borrowed, although they can be downloaded easily with the following conditions:

You must:

  • Be a member of the library with a valid membership card;
  • Have access to the Internet;
  • Have an Adobe identification (Adobe ID);
  • Install and authorize (with your Adobe ID) Aldiko Book Reader on your tablet or reader or Adobe Digital Editions on your computer;
  • Use Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer 9 or a more recent version as navigator.

Would you like the library to increase its collection of e-books? If so, let us know your interests This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Returning borrowed books

A book chute is available at the library's main entrance where you can return your borrowed books. Do not hesitate to use it; it is accessible at any time. (No late fines will be applied during the shutdown)!

 

Recruitment of volunteers

As previously mentioned, the management and operation of The Little Green Library is taken care of solely by persons who volunteer to offer their time.

It is essential for our organization that we recruit new volunteers to maintain and even develop our service offer.

Our volunteers who are most often seen are those who work at the loan counter, but there are also people who work at purchasing, cataloguing and classifying the books, not to mention organizing fund raising activities, art exhibits, promoting our activities, delivering books to day-care centres and seniors' residences, etc.

If you would like to contribute to the services provided by the library, or if you know someone who might be interested, please contact us at 450 264-4872 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Naturally, at the moment, training new volunteers has temporarily been suspended, but the needs are real, so don't hesitate to join our team!

 

 

Members will be kept informed of any developments regarding the reopening of the Library.
