Annual Boston Bruins Pajama Drive--goal!!!
Posted January 31, 2020; updated March 3, 2020
The Bolton Public Library is pleased to be participating in the Boston Bruins PJ Drive for another year in a row. From now until March 15th, please consider donating brand new sets of children's pajamas (all sizes) for kids in the care of the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The collection bin is located in the main lobby.
Our goal was to collect 100 pair this year. As of March 3, we've sent 124 pair to the Bruins, and we have 25 more pair queued up to send. Can we double our goal? It's up to YOU! Kids in DCF care desperately need the comfort of new pajamas. We'll continue collecting through 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 14.
New feature available for Overdrive users: Hold Redelivery
Posted March 2, 2020
Overdrive recently announced a new option for available holds in the library’s OverDrive collection: hold redelivery (or the “Deliver later” option). This feature gives you, the reader, more control over your holds, so you can borrow and read titles when it’s most convenient for you.
To support this feature, the automatic hold checkout setting will be removed from your library’s OverDrive collection. Any current holds will be updated to remove that setting, meaning users will need to manually borrow them when they’re available.
How does hold redelivery work?
Introducing Automatic Renewal of library materials
Posted July 10, 2019
Starting July 1, you might have noticed a new feature in our catalog and circulation system: physical materials (not downloadables) are being automatically renewed. This should prove to be a time-saver during the busy summer months and after! Patrons with email addresses in their records will be notified by email when an auto-renewal attempt is made. The email will list all items due on that date, whether the item was renewed, and if it wasn't, the reason why.
If you have questions or comments about auto-renewal, let us know!
Taijifit has a new home at the Library!
Posted November 1, 2018
We're pleased to announce a new partnership with the Council on Aging. Bolton's Taijifit classes for adults are now held at the Library every Thursday morning from 10-10:45 a.m.
What's Taijifit? It's a cross between fitness, Tai Chi, and meditation. Taijifit benefits both mind and body, reduces stress, and improves balance and coordination.
The class is open to adults including seniors, and costs $3 per session payable to certified instructor Kristin Higgins. For more information contact Shirley at sassyj555(at)gmail.com or 978-779-2216.
