Naples Public Library NewsletterOctober 2013

Dear Patron,

We hope everyone has noticed our beautiful new roof (see photos above), installed in just two days last month by Austin & Sons Roofing.  The heavy rains this year caused a "someday" need to be much more immediate, so we did not have the luxury of the time needed to construct a fund-raising campaign.  As always, any and all contributions to NPL are very much appreciated and needed.  Thank you Austin & Sons for a fantastic job.  
Our new circulation system is a big hit with staff, patrons and volunteers.  Please contact us via email ( to learn how to access your Naples Library account from anywhere with internet access! You should note that items are not renewable online at this time.  We hope this feature will be available soon.  We prefer you email us at to learn how to access your online account. If that is not possible, please stop in or call us at 207/693-6841.
