Krayon Kiosk at Big Flats Library August 26, 2015

Krayon KioskTechnology is forever changing, tablets get smaller and phones are getting bigger again, but the thing is technology is everywhere. Almost everyone has a smart phone, a tablet or a laptop that you can take with you to access the internet wherever you are and libraries are no different. In fact, we are offering technology to very young patrons who seem to grasp the idea very eagerly.

Last April, the Big Flats Library was lucky enough to be able to purchase a Krayon Kiosk that houses 4 iPads for elementary aged children. Each tablet is pre-loaded with 52 educational apps geared for children 2-9 years old. These apps teach math, science, art, etc., all with the goal of having our young patrons learn as they have fun. This kiosk has proved very popular and the children who come in, run to sit on one of the bright chairs and settle in for a morning or afternoon of fun. While the young ones are playing on the tablet, mom has a chance to choose the books they will be taking home with no interruptions.

We are finding that children know how to use these devices since most have them in their home and are used to navigating the screens to get to the game. No instruction at all is needed to get them started. Yes, technology is here to stay, and this is just one more way your public library is staying on track with the latest innovations.

We invite you to come to the Big Flats Library and see for yourself how much fun our kiosk is. Come early, it fills up fast with our young patrons.

New to the Genealogy & Local History collection: 1931 Church directory and the Soundex cards on microfilm August 17, 2015

New to our collections: A member directory from 1931 of the South Presbyterian Church in Elmira on the corner of Pennsylvania Ave and Southport Streets.  In 1931, they were already over 100 years old.  Today, the church is gone.  It burned down in 2004.  (Here’s the story: http://www.joycetice.com/church/2004fire.htm). Below please find a picture of the church in 1931 from the directory, and a Google earth shot of the same lot today.

Also new at the library, and of interest to genealogical researchers: We now have Soundex index cards available on microfilm.  This groups phonetically similar surnames together.  This is useful in case your family’s surname was misspelled in the census or the census index.  Sometimes, it is the only way to find a family in the census.  Feel free to come in and look at them yourselves!
