11/1/2012 - Library: Southbury Public Library New Website

The Southbury Public Library has launched a new website. The website (http://www.southburylibrary.org/) has been designed by the librarians using WordPress to create easy access to information by users.

The Home page includes blog postings about upcoming library programs and important library information. The postings are updated on a regular basis. The library hours are prominently displayed at the top right side of each page. The Quick Reference menu is located on the right side of almost every page. Clicking on the picture will bring you to a database. Our new Calendar is Google friendly and contains information about upcoming programs for adults, teens and children as well as library closings. Events are color coded based on who the program is designed for. The Support menu includes information about The Friends of the Southbury Public Library.

The Catalog menu allows for easy access to My Account, the Southbury Public Library Catalog and iCONN/Request (statewide) catalog. The About menu includes Lending Policies, Directions, information about the Gloria Cachion Art Gallery, Recording Studio for the Blind and InterLibrary Loan, and how to Contact Us if you need assistance.

The Adult Services menu contains information about our Homebound Service, Book Clubs, Programs, Wednesday Movies, Computers and E-Readers. The Reference menu contains a Research page which includes access to databases and websites covering a number of topics, a listing of our magazine and newspaper Subscriptions, the New York Times Best Sellers (linked to the library catalog to easily place a hold on the book), Local History information and a convenient What To Read Next section broken down by genre.

The Children’s menu includes Programs, New Books & More, Book Awards & Winners, Museum Passes, Junior Friends and Region 15 information. The Teens menu includes Program and Book Club information, helpful information for College Bound students, a handy Reader’s Advisory page with book suggestions broken down by category, Teen Book Award Winners, Volunteering information and a link to our Facebook page.
