Ever since the Vietnam War, a WHITE TABLE has been set across America in mess halls and at military events to honor America’s Armed Forces, especially those missing in action and held prisoner of war. Each of the items on the table signify different things. Over the years, the “table” has evolved and there are some slight differentiations that exist between the tables set by each branch of the military. The general principle, and most of the setting, is similar. Here’s our version of the #WhiteTable. We’ll have it on display for the next couple of weeks.
As a result of the survey we sent out this summer,
the library will host a Toddler Time in October, February, and June.
The 45-minute sessions will be from 6:30-7:15 PM, starting October 30 with a Zoo Animal Costume Party. Lots of age-appropriate activities will be on tap. We will do the “Stuffed Animal Sleepover” again in June as part of our summer reading activities for 2018. Please register online or at the library so we can have enough materials for everyone.

Our patrons have really been enjoying the use of our new DIGITAL MICROFILM READER!
Thanks to a new state-of-the-art digital microfilm reader system, our patrons can access the library’s microfilmed collection of area newspapers, with the latest technology available. The new system replaced a 13 year-old system that quit working shortly before it was replaced.
The ST ViewScan III Digital Reader/Printer/Viewer/Scanner is equipped with ability to capture digital images from microfilm, microfiche and 16mm or 35mm film.
The device is very user-friendly, with an abundance of options for image adjustments and editing. Users may save to a USB, Google Drive, Dropbox, email directly from the device, or directly to their Family Search account.
The library staff is available to assist patrons with the new microfilm reader anytime during operating hours.
This project was made possible through a grant from the Merrick Foundation, Inc, along with funds from the City of Central City and the Library’s endowment fund.
