Go Direct - Electronic Federal Benefit Payments

Are you getting Social Security, VA or other federal benefits by paper check? You are required by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to switch to electronic payments by March 1, 2013. You can choose to get your payments by direct deposit to a bank or credit union account or to a Direct Express® Debit MasterCard® card account.

If you do not choose an electronic payment option by March 1, 2013, you will receive your payments via the Direct Express® card so you will not experience any interruption in payment.

It’s fast, easy and free to make the switch online at www.GoDirect.org or by calling the U.S. Treasury Electronic Solution Center at (800) 333-1795. For direct deposit, you can also sign up at their bank or credit union. 

 

Stuffed Animal Sleepover 2012

Stuffed Animal Sleepover

On Monday, July 23rd, the library hosted its first stuffed animal sleepover.  Children brought their favorite stuffed animal and  left them to have their own sleepover at the library. When they came to pick up their animals the next day, the children were able to take home pictures of what their critters had been up to in the night!

Design with Books

Hello Booklovers: We have added a new title BOOKSHELF to our collection of design books. Here are some of our newer titles on living with books:

 

Books as design objects are in demand by interior designers, high-end builders, hotel developers and architects. Multimillion dollar homes have to come with libraries: spaces with built-in shelves and lots of books. And there are people who specialize in furnishing these libraries with books: 2,000 books wrapped in white or in cream colored leather? 4,000 books wrapped in black? No problem! Will they be read? That is another question!
