F r o m t h e D i r e c t o r : T a m my B a g g e t t Regardless of where I go or who I meet, Durham County Library is always a topic of conversation. Usually the conversation begins with, “I just love my library.” From there specifics are shared: “Thank you for having ebooks.” “It was so easy to follow directions on how to download to my Kindle.” “I attended one of your programs recently and really had a great time” or “I just brought my child to storytime and was amazed at the creativity, patience and energy of staff.” It’s always a pleasure to engage in conversation about library visits being an experience that affects our patrons’ lives in a positive way. There’s also the opposite side of the coin, though, and that’s what I’d like to focus on: Sometimes Durham County Library is the best kept secret in town. More often than I would like to admit I meet members of the community who are unaware of the many services we offer. Often these users are avid readers, loyal supporters and overall champions of the library, but they are simply unaware of all that is available to a library card holder. Many are unaware that even if they lack the time to visit a library in person, they can visit our virtual branch, durhamcountylibrary.org. You read correctly, our online presence is considered a branch and offers many of the same services as our brick and mortar structures. You may think the only thing missing is a friendly librarian greeting you with a smile, but you can even find that on our Teen Zone page or our Children’s storytime pages. I place great value on all users of Durham County Library whether they enter our library through our sliding glass doors or our virtual doors. That’s why I want to take this time to inform some and remind others of a few of our best kept secrets at Durham County Library.

First some of our online treasures: • Resources and databases including Morningstar and Transparent Language (foreign language instruction) • Video story time for young children • Top Ten Titles listing (most popular checkouts of the week), reading recommendations and more • Durham historical photograph collections and online exhibits Treasures when you enter our doors: • Computer classes on Internet use and email, as well as Microsoft Office • Joblink computers designated for job searches and resume help only • A popular collection of CDs and DVDs to browse and checkout • A North Carolina Room that features books, manuscripts, maps and more that capture Durham’s history • Engaging programs for all ages • Meeting spaces that make the library a welcoming community center There are even unexpected treasures in our parking lots: • Reserved parking and charging stations for hybrid and electric vehicles at North Regional, South Regional and the Main Library When it comes to Durham County Library, make sure to tell your family, friends and coworkers about the many services we offer. We are one secret that definitely should be shared!

D e l D i r e c t o r : T a m my B a g g e t t Sin importar a donde vaya o a quien conozca, la Biblioteca del Condado de Durham, (Durham County Library) es siempre el tema de conversación. Usualmente la conversación empieza con “Me encanta mi biblioteca” “Asistí a uno de sus programas recientemente y me la pasé genial” o “Acabo de llevar a mi niño a la hora de cuentos y estuve sorprendida de la creatividad, paciencia y energía del personal”. Siempre es un placer estar involucrada en conversaciones acerca de las visitas a la biblioteca que se vuelven experiencias que afectan la vida de nuestros clientes de una manera positiva. También hay el lado opuesto de la moneda, y es en lo que me gustaría poner énfasis hoy: algunas veces Durham County Library es el mejor secreto de la ciudad. Algunos miembros de la comunidad no están percatados de los muchos servicios que ofrecemos. Aunque las personas no tengan tiempo de visitar la biblioteca en persona, pueden visitar la sucursal virtual en el sitio, durhamcountylibrary.org. Porque valúo a todos nuestros clientes, quiero tomarme este tiempo para informarles a algunos y recordarles a otros de algunos secretos de Durham County Library. Algunos de nuestros tesoros en línea: • Recursos y bases de datos y el programa Transparent Language Online (Instrucción para aprender idiomas) • Hora de cuentos en video para niños pequeños (KIDS) y para bajar en computadora (PBS Video Collection) incluyendo shows para niños • Vínculos en Español con información de enlaces de salud, noticias, etc.

Tesoros cuando nos visitan personalmente: • Clases de computación en Ingles y algunas en Español y clases de ESOL para aprender Inglés. • Hora de cuentos bilingües en Inglés y Español. • Computadoras de Joblink diseñadas para buscar trabajos y obtener ayuda con resumes. • Hay materiales audiovisuales populares de muchos tipos de música, y películas en varios idiomas y CD’s para aprender Inglés. • Hay una buena colección de libros, audiolibros y CD’s en español o bilingües para niños, adolescentes y adultos en varios temas interesantes en la mayoría de las localidades de Durham County Library. • Programas divertidos, atractivos e interesantes para todas las edades. • Espacios para reuniones que hacen de la biblioteca un centro comunitario hospitalario. • Equipo de chequeo por usted mismo con instrucciones en español. Hay también inesperados tesoros en nuestros estacionamientos: • Estacionamientos reservados y estaciones para cargar energía para vehículos híbridos (hybrids) y eléctricos en las bibliotecas de North Regional, South Regional y Biblioteca Principal (Main Library). Cuando ese trata de Durham County Library, asegúrese de decirles a su familia, amigos y compañeros de trabajo de los muchos servicios que ofrecemos. ¡Nosotros somos un secreto que definitivamente se debería de compartir!

Awarding-winning illustrator and author, Colin Bootman, recently took a break from the hustle and bustle of New York City to visit Durham where he participated in Stampede To Read’s Big Book Block Party and visited local schools. During his school visits Bootman encouraged students to embrace their dreams and passion like he did. “Once you’ve discovered your interest or passion,

nurture, embrace and explore it,” he told hundreds of students who focused intently on his every word. When asked where could they go to explore their passion, students excitedly shouted various answers including museums, experts and libraries. On that note students were encouraged to ‘dream big’ this summer during the library’s summer reading club and read about their many interests.
