What is Prospect Hill Library and where is it?

                 "Prospect Hill Library" is actually three entities and is a self-supporting resident activity financed by donations from residents and friends.  The libraries are managed by a volunteer resident committee (Prospect Hill Library Committee).   

                 The "main" library is located on the second floor of Liberty Commons Clubhouse next to Signatures Lounge.   Keystone Clubhouse and Village Clubhouse each have a "branch" library in their second floor lounges.

 

What's available in the libraries?

Main library: 4000+ books including large print and paperback books; audio books (tape and CD);  DVDs and Blu-ray discs; magazines and newspapers; Internet access.  

Branch libraries (Village and Keystone Clubhouses):  fiction, mystery, and large print books  

Checkout isn't required at any of the libraries.  Please return what you've borrowed to the library from which you borrowed it when you are finished with it.  DVDs and audio books should be returned to the main library in Liberty Commons.

               

 When are the libraries open?

                We're always open!  

 

If I borrow books, etc., how long can I have them out?

                We don't have formal loan periods for books -- keep in mind that others may be waiting for the books you have.  We suggest that DVDs and Blu-ray discs be returned within 7 days.

 

Are there fines if my books are returned late?

                No!  We don't charge fines or send overdue notices.

 

What does the Library Committee do?

                Committee members determine policies and procedures  and handle day-to-day library operations.  Anyone interested in joining the Committee should attend one of our meetings (see this year's meeting schedule above).    No previous experience working in libraries is necessary.

 

 Where do all of the books come from?

                Most of the books and other materials in the libraries have been donated by residents and staff.  The library committee purchases large print books and DVDs as funds are available. 

               

 What kinds of books and other materials can the libraries use?

               Donations are always welcome.   Copies of our full Donation Policy are available in the main library and are posted at each of the branch libraries.  

BOOKS:  Fiction (including mysteries) that has been published within the last five years; non-fiction that has been published within the last ten years.  

DVDs and BLU-RAY DISCS (movies and TV series):  Must be in their original packaging and in playable condition. 

PAPERBACK BOOKS and LARGE PRINT BOOKS:   Books in these formats of any age (any copyright date) may be donated if in good condition.  

MAGAZINES:  General interest magazines published within the last six months. 

NEWSPAPERS:   If you would like to share your daily newspaper, please put it on the newspaper rack in the main library.  

               

WE DO NOT ACCEPT  videocassettes, music CDs or cassettes, old/damaged books, multi-book sets on a single subject or theme, "coffee table" books, encyclopedias, books in foreign languages, Reader's Digest Condensed books, puzzles, or games.  Please do not bring these items to the library -- we will throw them away.

               

ALL ITEMS DONATED BECOME THE PROPERTY OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE.  Because we receive more items than we can accomodate, some may be given to other libraries or non- profit organizations if we can't use them.  

               

Questions?   Call Joan Greenberg (see Resident Directory for contact information).

 

HAVE A SUGGESTION?  Please attend one of our meetings and share your thoughts.
