We held a special series designed to educate the public on different ways to use library services in March titled Exploring the Library. These virtual sessions offered through Zoom were ideal for new, prospective, and current users of all library system locations – Bowman Library, Clarke County Library, and Handley Library.
Topics included tips and tricks on using the online catalog to access materials and online content, hidden treasures on the library website, and a deep-dive session exploring the 24/7 Digital Library. To view video of the recorded programs see below.
