You should have pics of the new books u buy for kids on the site so people can see then

you should really add new books list on your site for kids and teens so they can see the new books that is at the library.

Thanks for the suggestion, we agree kids and teens books should get more love on our website. We've added new kids, teens, and picture books to our featured New Titles. Be sure to also visit the Youth section of the website.

Comfortable area needed


I really like the library, its really modern and cool, but it needs some kind of more comfortable area or room...

We are slowly improving the library's decor.  The Youth Services department has just been remodeled -phase one of our plans for the future of the library.  The POD's were put in for private study time and more space to work.  Money is the main factor in making improvements.  Be patient more improvements are in the planning stages.
 
Thank You for your comments,
Barbara Giordano
Director

Thanks for your comment, be sure to take a look at our New Titles. Many times new titles will not be at the library, so we suggest that you place a hold on your favorites.

Donating Books


Can you add on your website a page on donation books? where people can send in books that they want to give to the library if they are in good condition and list what books you will accept then ones you will not accept

Great question, we accept book donations at the Circulation desk. The only books we don't accept are encyclopedias.

Studio Ghibli Movies


All studio ghibli movies

We actually have a few studio Ghibli Movies. As you know Studio Ghibli is a Japanese animation studio based in Tokyo. Many times the movies are released well after they have been released in Japan. The Melrose Park Library has The Secret World of Arrietty and The Wind Rises. You can also expect to see The Tale of Princess Kaguya which will be released on February 17,2015. Feel free to place a hold on it early though. Many of the titles we don't have are available to request through SWAN including From Up on Poppy Hill, Grave of the Fireflies, and My Neighbor Totoro.

Rainbow Magic


I really love your library but I personally think you need more books. My daughter likes the rainbow magic books but you hadn't had any new ones recently, I know you can make holds and stuff but personally I like getting books from your very library.

We're glad to hear that your daughter loves the Rainbow Magic books, and happy that you love using this library. At the moment, we still have 35 books in this series and we are not seeing the demand that we used with these books. Until more patrons become interested in this series, we will not be purchasing more for this library's collection.
