April 2022 Library news

Return of the card catalog!

April 1, 2022

Do you have fond memories of looking through the card catalog, following those “See Also” references and browsing the Dewey Decimal divisions to find more resources? Well, you’re in luck! Today we’re welcoming back our card catalog! Gone are the days of instant search results and carpal tunnel syndrome from all that typing, and back are the days of paper cuts, heavy drawers, and hours and hours and hours of staff time alphabetizing and filing cards! Stop by to check out our author catalog, and keep an eye out for title and subject catalogs returning soon.*

In other (true) news, we’re delighted to announce that Mercer Public Library cardholders now have access to Kanopy, a streaming video service offering quality films, series, documentaries, children’s programming, and The Great Courses. More details are below.

Wishing everyone a warm and happy April!

*And by soon, I mean maybe after the zombie apocalypse destroys the power grid. Happy April Fool’s Day!
