Clifton Community Library Going Fine Free

The Board of Trustees and Library Director are pleased to announce that Clifton Community Library is going (mostly) fine free effective this month!

What this means for our community is that you will no longer receive a daily late fine on overdue items. We hope this will encourage our patrons to return to the library, despite past fines. 

Of course, there are a few catches...

The fine-free policy is at the discretion of the director.  If borrowers have a past history of seriously overdue materials on multiple occasions, they will remain responsible for fines. 

Welcome to Clifton Community Library

Clifton Community Library is located in the Clifton Community Center in the hamlet of Cranberry Lake, Town of Clifton. The Clifton Community Center is also the location of the Cranberry Lake Post Office and the Clifton Town Clerk, Town Justice and Town Historian.

Hot Spot Now Available at Newton Falls!

Thanks to a generous grant by the Foundation for Rural Service and in cooperation with SLIC and the Newton Falls Fire Department, Clifton Community Library has been able to install a wireless hotspot at the Newton Falls Fire Department.  This hotspot will provide totally free wireless internet access for one year for the residents of our area, complimenting the free WiFi we already offer at Cranberry Lake.

Visitors do not need a password to log in, simply open your computer or phone's WiFi menu and connect to "Library WiFi".  There is no time limit, and the WiFi is on 24/7.

New Circulation Desk

Thanks to Roger Backus of Cranberry Lake, we have a beautiful new circulation desk!  When visitors enter the library, they will immediately be greeted by a staff member.  We are especially grateful to George Cherepon, Bill Griffin, and Butch Whitmore for helping move the desk over from Roger's workshop.  Our old circulation desk has gone to the Madrid Library.  You can see it in its new home here!

 

Meet Merlin!

The Clifton-Fine Lions Club voted unanimously on Monday, June 11 to donate a Merlin full color CCTV video magnifier to the Clifton Community Library.  The machine allows patrons to examine materials in small print, with 16 magnification settings and 28 color modes for maximum contrast enhancement.

The library will offer formal training on Merlin on Monday, June 25 at 11AM and patrons can drop by any time to see what Merlin can do!  This is an awesome tool for those with visual impairments, hobbyists, and more.

Clifton Community Library Survey

We have put together a short survey for our patrons and residents to take when you have a few minutes.  We are hoping to get some ideas about why people love coming to the library and, perhaps, why they don't!  Please take a few minutes to fill this out.  It will help the Board of Trustees and the librarian plan for the library's future.

Thank you!
