New Circulation Periods on DVDs

By popular request, we have extended the circulation period on our instructional and other non-feature film DVDs to 7 days. Serial TV shows and video games also check out for 7 days, while regular feature film DVDs are 3 days with 1 renewal. There are no renewals on the 7 day items, but you can always check them out again if no one has them on hold when you bring them back.

We are in the process of labelling our entire DVD collection with 3 or 7 day check out stickers to help our patrons better keep track of when their items are due.

*An important reminder: when you borrow DVDs (or any other items) from another library through the interlibrary loan service, their due dates may be different than those for our own items. Check your receipt carefully or ask library staff if you have any questions.

Online Resources from the Michigan Electronic Library

Now that summer is winding down, you know what happens next - school!  School means homework, homework means term papers, term papers mean research resources, and research resources mean MeL.org.

The Teens Gateway Homework Help section offers databases as well as select internet sites in four areas: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies/History. 

Whether it's Michigana: Sources in U.S. History Online, Research in Context, or InfoTrac Student Edition students will find reliable and accurate information and data for their research and learning. 

The MeL Kids Gateway also offers Homework Helpers for young learners who are just beginning their research efforts.  Kids InfoBits, World Book Kids, and NoveList K 8 Plus are all designed with elementary students in mind with age appropriate content and subjects.

Students might not be ready for school to start again, but with MeL's help you can be. 

MeL Minutes are brought to you by the Library of Michigan.
