From Technical Services — November 2021

The Technical Services Department acquires, catalogs and processes library materials including books, dvds and even toys and puzzles. This process involves 1) providing a record in the library’s online catalog so the item can be searched and identified and 2) creating a call number and label so the item can be physically shelved in an organized manner for easy access.

Did you know there are puzzles, dolls and even cake pans available to check out with a library card? Peruse the Library of Things – there’s something for everyone!
