NEW SELF-CHECKOUT KIOSKS
The library has installed new self-checkout kiosks at the circulation desk and in the grand hall for patrons to use. These are easy to navigate and should speed-up the checkout process.
Click the play button on the video below to learn how to use our self-checkout stations.
SELF-CHECKOUT OF DVDs & BARCODED ITEMS
Some items in the library’s collections (e.g., DVDs, books, etc.) have not yet been equipped with new RFID tags. Other items, such as music CDs, only have barcodes. Consequently, such items will not be automatically detected at the new self-checkout kiosks. For these items, patrons will need to SCAN the OLD LIBRARY BARCODES, usually found (1) inside DVD cases; (2) on the inside or outside back cover of books; and (3) on the back covers of music CD cases.
The slideshow tutorial (below) explains how to open DVD cases and also how to scan library barcodes.

LIBRARIES & OLD DEWEY
To promote the library’s various services and programs, Suzanne Walker, former head of MPL youth services, wrote a music video parody of the song “Rocky Top” (1967), by the Osborne Brothers. Parody lyrics composed by Suzanne Walker; video featuring Suzanne with MPL staff and volunteers. Parody lyrics sung and performed by the duo Fiverr (2011).
GO ASK REFERENCE
To promote reference services, MPL presents a music parody video, Go Ask Reference, written and directed by Rachel Montgomery, MPL teen librarian, and storyboarded by Rachel Montgomery & Meghan Adams, MPL adult programming coordinator, who is the vocalist (parody lyrics by Rachel Montgomery). MPL staff play various “Alice in Wonderland” characters in the video. The video is a parody of the song “White Rabbit” (1967), by Jefferson Airplane.
