Adult Winter Reading Club
January 7th - April 1st
Get a FREE gift for joining!
There are no meetings. Simply read or listen to what you want, fill out a 'review card' for each title, and bring your review cards to the Reference Desk. The reading club will culminate during National Library Week (April 7-13th) when we will celebrate with a series of events, including food, fun and prizes! Your 'review cards' will act as raffle tickets for the prizes so the more your read, the better your chances of winning!
Registration begins January 7th at the Reference Desk for Bryant Library cardholders only.
You can get your 'review cards' at the Reference Desk or print it online.
Bryant Express Picks (For Bryant Cardholders Only)
Take a chance--Look for the Stars! You may find a book you've been waiting for! As an extension of our effort to get current, in demand titles to you faster, this special collection of Fiction, Non-Fiction and DVDs has been created. Look for the Gold Star on the spine and you're on a fast track to satisfy your current craving!
Here's how Bryant Express Picks works:
One (1) Express book and one DVD per cardholder - No reserves or renewals
(Remember the idea is to keep this collection circulating on a fast track!)
- Fiction circulates for 14 days - Fine: 25 cents per day overdue
- Non-Fiction circulates for 14 days - Fine: 25 cents per day overdue
- Don't worry...you can still reserve from our regular collection as always
If you find an Express Pick for which you already have a Reserve, please let Circulation know so that they may get that book to the next patron.
Everything (or almost everything) you need to know about jobs, education and careers is in one compact area.
The Career Management Center is essentially a miniature library, with circulation and reference sections, some specialty areas. As in the larger library, books marked with the yellow "Reference" sticker or stamped "Reference - Does Not Circulate" may be used only in the library. Examples of the types of books that are available are: resume, cover letter, interview skills guides, Civil Service exam listings & aids, graduate & professional school entrance exam aids, as well as books on various careers, occupations, etc. The shelves near the Career section lists job postings and other relevant information.
Dawn Rosenberg McKay, a career specialist, will offer assistance with all career-related issues including career choice, resume writing, job interviewing and workplace success. Ms. McKay has over two decades of experience helping people navigate their careers. She has worked with them one-on-one in a library setting and has published numerous articles and several books on the topic. Ms. McKay runs the Career Planning site on About.com (http://careerplanning.about.com).
She will be available by calling the Reference Desk for an appointment at 621-2240, ext. 240 on Tuesday evenings, beginning at 4:30. Please print and fill out a Client Intake Form before your appointment. They are also available at the Reference Desk, so if you can't print it out, please plan on arriving ten minutes prior to your appointment time.
