The Library will be closed on Sundays.

Posted on

Starting in October the Library will now be closed on Sundays. The rest of the operating hours will remain unchanged. And as a reminder, our hours of operation are:

Monday – Thurs 10 AM – 8 PM

Friday – Saturday 12 PM noon – 5 PM

Closed Sunday and Federal Holidays.

And please remember that if you’re using our computers, we shut them down 15 minutes prior to closing.

This change will allow the Library staff to better serve our customers with new programs, more one-on-one attention, and better marketing of all the great sections and selections in our collection.

We appreciate all of our customers and know this change will allow us to refocus on them. We’ve been listening to you and want to offer you not only an excellent Base Library, but to continue to be the best library in the area.

The Library will be closed on Labor Day weekend.

We just wanted to remind you that the Library will be closed for the Labor Day weekend.

We’re going to close at 4 PM on August 31st, and we will be closed September 1st through the 3rd, and reopen at 10 AM on Tuesday, September 4, as usual. We hope that you have a fun and safe weekend.

And just a heads up: Starting in October the Library will be closed on Sundays. But we will still be open our normal hours Monday through Saturday.

Beginning Genealogy returns!

Posted on

On Thursday, Aug. 16 the Library will be hosting a sharing session and discussion about Beginning Genealogy. Barbara Schlafer is returning to facilitate this discussion on how and where to begin your genealogical journey. The discussion will be free and help provide you with some of the tools that will enable you to start finding your roots, focusing on your individual interests in genealogy, and getting started on gathering your family stories. We’ll also look into utilizing resources both physical and on the internet, and how to organize your research. Space could become limited and advanced registration is required.

As a special treat, there will be a door prize given at the end of the session: a copy of Family Tree Maker 2012, being donated by Ancestry.com. To qualify for the drawing, you must be present and pre-registered for the event.

WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 16 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

WHERE: In the Robins Air Force Base Library, Building 905

QUESTIONS / HOW TO REGISTER: If you have any questions or would like to register then please send us an email at robinsbaselibrary@gmail.com and put “Beginning Genealogy” in the subject line. Please register by Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 8 PM if you’re interested.

We look forward to hearing from you!

The last session of our Summer Reading Program was yesterday and he gave our prizes and had a cupcake party.

We just wanted to thank everyone who participated and spent their Mondays this summer with us and say that we had a lot of fun…

And we hope you did too.

The Fire Rises!

Posted on

Tomorrow (or midnight tonight for some folks) is the day that many people have been eagerly anticipating for a while now: the release of The Dark Knight Rises.

And with the release of the newest and final film in director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films, quite a few patrons have come in looking to whet their appetite on all things related to the caped crusader…

So we’re happy to remind you that we have quite a few Batman graphic novels, as well DVDs. Hopefully they’ll help you satisfy your hunger for some of the adventures of Gotham City’s favorite characters.

And if you get a chance, let us know what you think of the new movie.

Please note that books and DVDs mentioned here could be checked out between the time they end up on the blog and when you come to check them out. If you don’t see the items you’re looking for then please come up to the front desk, OR call us, OR send us an email at robinsbaselibrary@gmail.com and  we’ll put your name on the reserve list for when the item returns.

The Library will be closed on the 4th of July.

We don’t think this will surprise anyone, but we wanted to remind you that we would be closed next Wednesday, July 4th, to celebrate Independence Day.

We will be operating on our normal hours the rest of the week, so we will reopen at 10 AM on Thursday, July 5th, as usual. We hope you have a very nice, safe weekend.

Our Summer Reading Program for the kids starts next week!

Don’t forget: The Summer Reading Program at the library starts on Monday, June 11 at 10 AM and will be every Monday for six weeks, ending on July 23. The program will last about an hour each Monday, and there will be storytime, crafts, and fun.

The theme this summer is Reading Is So Delicious! and it should be exciting. Registration is required and we hope that you’ll join us to cook up some fun.
