LIBRARIES ARE LOCATED ON THE

SECOND FLOOR OF EACH CLUBHOUSE

 

2020 Prospect Hill Library Committee meetings

have been cancelled because of the Covid situation.  

We hope to meet on November 4, Signatures Lounge, 9:30 am.

If you have suggestions or would like to become a member of the Library Committee, please attend one of our meetings.

 

Prospect Hill Libraries are resident-supported libraries open to all residents and staff.    If you would like to make a donation to support our libraries, please make your check payable to "Ann's Choice Restricted Fund" and in the memo section of your check write "Prospect Hill Library."  Donations should be put in cubby  LP 115 (Liberty Commons Clubhouse).  Thanks for your support!

 

NEWS YOU SHOULD KNOW!

 

Copies of the "Pennsylvania Application for Mail-In Ballot" are available in the main library in Liberty Commons.  They are displayed in a literature rack on the counter under the window.

 

A reference copy of the 2019 Ann's Choice Annual Report is available in each library.  Also available are copies of the 2019 Resident Satisfaction Survey.  These copies are for use in the libraries only - please do not take them with you.  If you want your own copy, contact the Administration Office in Village Clubhouse.

 

Do you read large print books? Consider making a contribution to PROSPECT HILL LIBRARY so we can buy more of them. 

Special large print book donation forms are available in all three libraries.

 

Looking for a specific title or author in the main library?  Don't forget to look on the "Oversized Paperback" stacks, opposite the non-fiction collection.  There are hundreds of paperbacks there that are too big to fit on our rotating paperback racks.

 

JUST A REMINDER:  The newspapers available in the main library are donated by your fellow residents and should be read IN THE LIBRARY.  Please do not take them home with you.  By keeping them in the library, more residents will have access to them.   A big THANKS to our residents who share their daily newspapers!

 

DID YOU KNOW that the main library in Liberty Commons has a small collection of children's books and DVDs for visiting grandchildren?  The "Children's Corner" is located in the same book stacks as our large print books.

 

The computer that is available for public use in the main Library in Liberty Commons is a "Lab Computer" managed by the Ann's Choice IT Department.  The printer is  also managed by the IT Dept.  Printing is free but you will need to supply your own paper.

 

Wifi service is available in the Library and throughout Liberty Commons Clubhouse.

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.  There is also a computer, managed by the Ann's Choice IT Department, available for public use. 

 

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

 

There is no formal checkout procedure 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?

 Campus libraries are always open (subject to issues related to Covid 19).  

 

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

We don't have formal loan periods -- keep in mind that others may be waiting for the books and DVDs that you have borrowed.  We suggest that DVDs and Blu-ray discs be returned within 7 days and books within 3 weeks.  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 with  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?  [See our temporary policy, above]

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).
