LEWISTOWN - The Mifflin County Library retired is "out with the old, in with the new."
On Friday, the library launched a new website that is interactive, user-friendly and easier to navigate, with useful links that are easy to find.
The new site is the next step in reaching out to the community to be an all-the-time library with 24-7 access.
"This is a living, breathing site, and we will continue to make changes to better serve the community," said Dr. Molly Kinney, executive director
"We value your input," added Marsha Shilling, technology services coordinator and website developer. "Please click on the feedback tab and let us know what you think. What would you like to see on the site?"
The site also includes information for children and teens. Susan Miriello, children's librarian, developed pages that encourage children to read, learn and have fun.
"Be sure to click on TumbleBooks. These e-books for young children are not downloaded but enjoyed in the cloud," she said.
"As president of the Board of Directors, I am so pleased and proud of the staff who developed our new site. I hope that the many people who use the site will find it useful and be satisfied with it," said Teddie Snyder.
The Library wants everyone to be able to use the site and used the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Accessibility Guidelines to ensure that site can be accessed by everyone, regardless of disabilities or technological limitations. You will also find direct links to connect to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Pinterest.
The new website can be found at www.mifflincountylibrary.org.
