With a Little Help from the Friends...

I am extremely pleased to announce that, thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Middletown Thrall Library, Inc., we are going to be able to purchase new public computers for the Library. The Friends of Thrall, in honor of their 20th Anniversary, are contributing $20,000 to the Library, which will enable us to greatly improve the quality of our patron's experiences at our public computer / Internet workstations.

But wait, there's more good news!

In addition to the new public computers, we are also going to purchase a time and print management software product called Envisionware. This product will allow us to regulate the amount of time people spend at our public workstations so now all people who need to use a computer will be given an exact amount of time to complete their tasks. Patrons will also have the opportunity to purchase print copies using their library card and keep a balance on their card, which will save time and effort. It is our hope that both the addition of the new computers and the installation of the Envisionware software will allow our patrons to work more independently and efficiently. We will be phasing in these improvements over the next few months, and we will keep you posted with all you need to know regarding this computer upgrade.

The Friends of Thrall serve the community by supporting the Library in a number of ways. They provide crucial financial assistance on a yearly basis, which allows us to purchase materials for the collection, fund extra programs, and purchase furniture and equipment. Our Friends also sponsor a series of worthwhile and entertaining special events, like musical performances, antique appraisals, and guest lecturers. We are truly thankful for their continued support.
