Amenities at the new Fleming Library

We are settling into our new 'digs' in the Community Complex in Beamsville. 

This week, I thought I would outline some of the new amenities.

* A study room that seats 10:  It can be used on a first come, first served basis for literacy tutors or group projects.  It can be booked for $10 with access to an interactive whiteboard.

* Self holds pickup:  Patrons can now pick up holds on their own.  The identifying slip has the first three letters of the last name and the last four numbers of the library card.  (This has also been implemented in Vineland).

*Touch Screen Online Catalogue: No need for a mouse - you can now touch the screen as you use the online catalogue.

*Fireplace: need I say more! It will be installed shortly.

*Several Seating Options: We have laptop friendly seats by the window wall, some with power, two tables and chairs with power, soft seating with power in the fireplace lounge and bistro seating in the children's area.  Watch for the bench underneath the bow window in the children's area arriving soon.

*Self Check Out: Coming soon!

*Freegal: To celebrate our opening, we have added Freegal to our online lineup. Download music for free which is yours to keep! Find Freegal in the Database link on our homepage -

If you haven't done so yet, please visit us.  You will love your new library!
