Welcome to the first post of the official Levittown Public Library blog, Checking the Shelf! The LPL has been a community staple since 1951 and it is safe to say that libraries have changed quite a bit since then. We now have e-books, iPads, an online catalog, and many other technologies that were unimaginable sixty-three years ago. This is an especially exciting time at the LPL. In addition to this blog, we have a spiffy new website and a new and improved logo. We are also working on several projects that we are excited to unveil to the public, including a state-of-the-art Innovation Station, complete with the latest in 3-D technology.
The LPL will continue to evolve, but our number one priority will always be you. That’s right, YOU! We are constantly trying to find new ways of communicating with our patrons; we want to know what you need, and we want you to know about all the services we work hard to provide. This is why we decided to start Checking the Shelf. From now on, you can stop by our blog to learn more about upcoming programs, the latest books to read, random factoids, little known LPL treasures, and much more. As the main blogger for Checking the Shelf, I look forward to creating a fun and informative online space for us to communicate about everything from our Little Chefs program to the latest book to screen adaptation.
Our new motto is “Growing with our Community.” While this has been true of the Levittown Public Library since the first day it opened its doors, it has never been truer than today.
