     Serving Ann's Choice Residents and Staff

 

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).   We receive no funding from Ann's Choice.  The facilities and furnishings belong to Ann's Choice, not to the Library Committee.

                 The "main" library is located on the second floor of Liberty Commons Clubhouse, adjacent to Signatures Lounge.  In addition, both Keystone Clubhouse and Village Clubhouse have "branch" libraries in the second floor lounges.

 

What's available in the libraries?

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

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

                Checkout isn't required - just return the books to the library from which you borrowed them when you are finished.  DVDs and Audio Books should be returned to the main library in Liberty Commons.

               

 When are the libraries open?

                We're always open!  The libraries are set up to be self-service operations, but you may find one of our Committee members working in them when you're there.  We'll be happy to help you.

 

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

                Main library:   three weeks for books and audio books and one week for DVDs  However, if you can't get them back within that period, please return them as soon as you can so that others may enjoy them.  

                Branches:  no restrictiions.

 

Are there fines if my books are returned late?

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

 

What are the responsibilities of the Library Committee?

                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.    No previous library experience 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.  However, space is limited and we do have some restrictions.  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.  

               

If you have large quanities of books that you need to dispose of, please review the information above.  Questions?   Call Joan Greenberg (see Resident Directory for contact information).  

 

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

 

CAN'T FIND WHAT YOU WANT AT OUR LIBRARIES?   Visit the Warminster Township Library, 1076 Emma Lane, Warminster, for more options.  You will need to obtain a Bucks County Free Library card at Warminster Library in order to check out materials at that or any public library in Bucks County.  Phone Warminster Library at 215 672 4362 for more information.
