Spotlight on ...

Interlibrary loan service : Just a reminder that interlibrary loan service is available again. Please check our online catalog before making a request as we might already have the item. The catalog is accessible at the library or at home at www.bapl.us. (Click on Library Catalog).  If you need help please ask at the front desk or call 737-8810 during normal library hours

Adult Book Group : The October discussion book will be The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley. The next meeting will be Thursday October 9th at 7:00pm at the library. New members are always welcome!

Reminder -- Kindle ebooks: Don't forget...the library has a Kindle Fire ebook reader filled with a variety of titles for all ages that can be checked out and enjoyed!

SPOTLIGHT ON .....Outlander!  The story of headstrong combat nurse Claire Randall and Scottish warrior Jamie Fraser began long before this year's television show!  Come see our special display featuring the entire adventure-filled main series including the latest addition, Written in My Own Heart's Blood, as well as The Outlandish Companion, a helpful guide to all things Outlander.

Help Wanted: Our annual book sale road signs are showing their age.  The library would like to find a community volunteer or volunteers willing to build some sturdier, weatherproof signs that could stand the test of time for next year's sale. If you are interested in helping us out or if you have questions please stop by during open hours or call the library at 737-8810. Halldale students looking to complete their community service graduation requirements may want to consider this opportunity!

Lost and Found:
Missing something? Please check the Lost and Found bin located under the librarian's desk. Useful items that remain in the bin for more than three months will be donated to the Swap Shop, so take a peek next time you visit!

Audio Books:
Just a reminder that the library is still looking for donations of audio books on CD.  If you have any in good condition that you wish to donate please bring them to the library during open hours of drop them in the book drop.  Audio books are very popular and the demand has grown dramatically in recent years!


To retain Bridge Academy's Inter-library loan privileges - ALL Inter-library loaned books MUST be returned on time so they can be returned to the Library that loaned them to us.  Loss of this privilege will deny access to these books for ALL of us.
