Nancy's Notes - November 11, 2010
You will probably think we never work anymore. We are closed this week on Nov. 11, Thursday, for Veterans Day, and we will also be closed Monday, November 15, for training.
Our staff has been working hard re-barcoding and distributing new patron cards. We will be switching our circulation system within the next few weeks. Our staff now needs to learn how to operate the new system and discover all the nifty things it will be capable of doing. When we’re up and running you will be able to go on-line and see if materials are available at our library or any of the participating libraries. I believe you will be able to place reserves on-line, you will not be able check-out on-line however. This will make searching for books after hours a possibility. If you haven’t stopped in for your new card please do so in the next week. There will be short window of time where we will not be able to add patrons or change them to our new 14 digit number, so those without the new cards will no longer be in our system.
Daniel Silva is back with “The Rembrandt Affair”, a tale of greed and murder spanning more than half a century. The story involves two families, a secret, and a painting someone will die for. Gabriel Allon retreats to the cliffs of Cornwall with his Venetian-born wife. Trying to sever his ties with the Office, his seclusion is interrupted by a visitor from his past. Eccentric London art dealer Julian Isherwood who has a problem only Allon can solve. In the English city of Glastonbury, an art restorer has been brutally murdered and a portrait by Rembrandt stolen. Despite his reluctance, Gabriel is persuaded to use his unique skills to find those responsible for the crime.
