Win a Kindle Fire during National Library Week April 9, 2012Posted by CCLD in District News.

As part of the celebration of National Library Week and to help promote the district’s expanding eBook collection and library card sign-up, the Chemung County Library District is offering library cardholders a chance to win a Kindle Fire.
Library patrons can enter for a chance to win between April 9th and 14th, when they check out materials at any branch.
“The district has a growing eBook collection and we want to make sure residents know about them, while at the same time encouraging library card sign-up.” District Director Ronald Shaw said. “We have started a test program through our Horseheads Branch where patrons can check out a Sony Reader, Nook, or Kindle Touch. Once we have a chance to evaluate the program we may expand it to the other branches.”
The library’s eBook collection contains everything from current bestsellers to the classics. The eBooks are available through the library website.
District patrons can receive a drawing ticket each time they check out materials. Only one entry per day is permitted. Library district residents who don’t have a library card can sign up for a free one by bringing in proof of residency to the library.
“Since we’ve started offering eBook downloads through our website, the questions we’ve fielded about eBook readers have increased tremendously. We are also looking into downloadable music for our patrons. One service available, Freegal, would allow cardholders to download songs from the Sony Music catalog of artists. The best part, after downloading, users keep the music.”
Kids Can Read Down Their Fines! April 2, 2011Posted by poppendeckc in Youth Services.

In celebration of National Library Week, CCLD will be offering the opportunity for patrons under the age of 15 to read down their fines.
This means for every 15 minutes they spend reading in their local library (Big Flats, Horseheads, West Elmira, Steele, or Van Etten), they can deduct $0.50 from the total of their fines. This will apply only to their own library card; they may not read down fines for family members or friends.
This is a great chance for kids who have chalked up fines of any amount to lower or eliminate fines preventing them from borrowing materials.
The dates will be April 11 – 16.
Mark down the dates, and come in to the library and read down those fines!
