ADAMS COUNTY LIBRARY NEWS

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month and you celebrate with the Adams County Public Library by visiting your local library to sign up for a card. A new library card is always free, and gives you access to borrow thousands of new books, DVDs, audio books, magazines, and more. Borrow unlimited books, and up to five DVDs at a time. Use your card to download eBooks and audio books to your tablet or smart phone, or use it to access online databases the library subscribes to for your use, including genealogy research site Heritage Quest, and auto-repair database Chilton.

To apply for a new library card, simply bring your photo ID and proof of address, such as a bill or insurance card mailed to your address. Children under 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present to receive a new card. If you’ve lost track of your card, stop by to replace it. The fee for a replacement card is $1, and library cards come with a duplicate keychain card. The library offers many other services, including public Internet computers and free WiFi, printing, copying, scanning, and faxing, free appointments for one-on-one computer help, and weekly Story Time for young children. If you have questions, just ask. We’re glad to help you find the answer. Stop by your local library to discover why your library card might become the favorite card in your wallet.

The West Union Public Library is saying goodbye to two special employees who are moving on this week. Brenda Ballinger is the Collection Development Specialist for all four Adams County Public Libraries, and has made a difference working at the West Union and Manchester Libraries for 34 years. Sarahanna Akers is a Library Clerk who has been a familiar face at the West Union Library’s service desk since 2014. The Adams County Public Library staff and Board of Trustees will miss them, and we wish them both all the best in their future endeavors.

Have you heard spooky sounds in the woods at night? Is there a Bigfoot in Ohio? Plan to join us at the West Union Library on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 1 p.m., when The Ohio Nightstalkers present a program about their investigation and encounters with Bigfoot in Ohio. See footprint castings, hear audio recordings and firsthand accounts of encounters, and share your own experiences with Bigfoot. The Ohio Nightstalkers will show the 1967 Patterson Gimlin film uncut, and also play an audio recording made by The Ohio Nightstalkers in October of 2014 near Lynx in Adams County.

New patrons and returning patrons who sign up for a library card or replacement card at the North Adams Library during September will be entered in a drawing to win a surprise prize. Show off your new card by posing for a picture with your card in the library, and we’ll feature you on our Facebook page.

The Adams County Public Library is open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Visit us online at adamscolibrary.org, or follow us on Facebook to keep up the latest news and events.
