Home Improvement Reference Center
EBSCO, the provider of many of our databases, is making its Home Improvement Reference Center available free to libraries now through June 30, 2013, to help New Jersey residents impacted by Hurricane Sandy. This easy-to-use database includes magazine articles and reference content, as well as videos and images, designed to help homeowners tackle home repairs safely. It provides the latest step-by-step information along with background information and basic tips on topics including electrical, plumbing, woodworking, outdoor projects, maintenance and decorating.

This Month's Art Display
David John Rush, a professional artist, provides the art display at the Library for May. A New Jersey native, Mr. Rush studied at the Famous Artists School in Westport, CT. His paintings, here in oils and watercolors, tell a story, yet invite you to look through the windows and peek behind the doors to see the not so obvious.
Funding for this Mobile Project initiative is provided by LibraryLinkNJ, The New Jersey Library Cooperative whose services are funded by the New Jersey State Library, which is responsible for the coordination, promotion, and funding of the New Jersey Library Network.
The Library provides wireless Internet that can be used by anyone with a wireless-enabled laptop. You do not have to be a patron. You should know how to connect your own laptop to a wireless network. There may not be anyone at the Library who can provide technical assistance. Your laptop may display a number of Library wireless networks; you can connect to a network if it has an “unlocked” symbol (an open lock) next to it. You don’t have to enter a password to connect to a network, and this means that the network is not secure. This is not a problem unless you need to transfer confidential information, such as passwords or credit card information, in which case you may want to wait until you have access to a secured network.
