The new season of Mad Men starts on April 7th. If, like me, you fell in love with Mad Men from the beginning, you are anxiously awaiting what is supposed to be the penultimate season.

Managing your holds online
In January, I posted about how to place a hold online. Your hold list consists of those items that you have already placed on hold. You can check their status, cancel, suspend or reactivate them all from the comfort of your own home.
Lost English king identified
“Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious summer by this sun of York,” so quoth Shakespeare’s King Richard III. Richard was the last Yorkist king of England, whose death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 ended the Wars of the Roses and marked the beginning of Tudor rule.
Placings holds online
The first thing that I like to do before placing a hold on an item is to log in to my library account. I like to do this first because if you are not logged into your account when you try to place your hold, you will be prompted to log in while you are in the middle of placing your hold.
Battle of the Nutcrackers
Every year Ovation television station airs a “Battle of the Nutcrackers.” The channel features a different production of the Nutcracker every week in December and viewers are invited to vote for their favorite rendition online.
Renewing items online
My third post about online accounts explains how to renew your items. Once you have logged in you will be brought to the main page of your account (see my previous post to find out how to register your account and log in for the first time).
History lost and rediscovered
Did you know that you can ask the library to purchase a book for our collection? This is exactly what I did this summer. In June, I visited Jamestown, Virginia. In the gift shop I found the book, “Jamestown, the Buried Truth,” written by Dr. William Kelso, Jamestown’s head archaeologist.
How to edit your online account
My second blog post about online accounts explains how to change your personal details. Once you have logged in you will be brought to the main page of your account (see my previous post to find out how to register your account and log in for the first time).
Over the last couple of weeks you may have seen people in the library or walking around town with red Princeton Public Library bags. “What are these cute, little bags?” you ask yourself, “What is the library up to now?” These red bags are the brand new carrying cases for our e-readers. Those of you who have checked out an e-reader with us before will remember the bulky plastic boxes in which they came. They are now being replaced with our easy-to-carry, compact, and convenient e-reader bags.
