I am pleased to announce that after 9 months of organizing and planning, we as a Library System are ready to launch Freegal Music Services. Effective today, Freegal Music is available to library patrons throughout the five-county area via our web link https://stlsny.freegalmusic.com. Member libraries are encouraged to include this link on their website to provide patrons user-friendly access. Our targeted System “Go Live” date was July 1st. However, STLS IT staff has done a wonderful job of collaborating with Library Ideas to provide this service two weeks early.
I am extremely proud of all our libraries for recognizing the advantages of this service. In order for public libraries to remain relevant, we need to offer exciting and innovative services that engage all people within our communities. Together, we have worked collaboratively to offer something System-wide that many other library systems in our State have yet to provide. We all deserve a loud round of applause!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or write.
Have you tried to read the Whitesville Newspaper on the microfilm machine at the library, got frustrated and gave up!! You no longer need to do that. Thanks to Roger Easton the Whitesville News is now online and can be searched at your convenience in the comfort of your own home. Find it at http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html . Whitesville News is on page 5.
Town historian, Roger Easton has now put the Whitesville News on a flashdrive so you can insert it in one of our public access computers to view without navigating the entire Fulton News site.
