Here's some exciting news!
The Alice L. Pendleton Library has partnered with the National Digital Equity Center (NDEC) to offer FREE classes on technology, hardware, and software right here at the library.
Preregistration is not required, you can walk in for a class, but you will have to fill out an enrollment form upon arrival, and please keep in mind that there is a limit of 10 spots per class, so first come, first serve.
If you're interested in any of the classes currently offered, click on the name of the class above for more information and to register and reserve your spot. Classes will be held at the library at the scheduled date and time, and it is recommended (though not required) that you bring your own device.
If you have any questions, or need help registering or enrolling, please feel free to ask us at the library! We'd be happy to help.
the NDEC offers new classes as time goes on, so please check back frequently!
QuickVue Covid tests are available at the library! If you or your family need a rapid response test for covid, or if you just want to have one on hand, just in case, just come down and ask for one, and you will be provided with a two-use test and instructions how to perform the test.
Don't See What You Want in the Library?
Here's How to Get It!
In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.
Request for Purchase
We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think a book, DVD, magazine, newspaper, game, or database should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out. You can make requests by clicking here.
Hundreds of e-books and audio books are available on Cloud Library through our website. Just go to alplibrary.org, click on “On-line Resources,” and scroll down to Cloud Library. Once you enter your library card number and download the appropriate app, you can access fiction, non-fiction, best sellers, classics, young adult, and childrens’ books and enjoy these resources on your personal media devices.
